Parallel virtual memory
For synchronous computing, the virtual memory concept is an established standard method for managing external memory. Its main advantage is that it allows the application programmer to access a large virtual memory without having to deal with the intricacies of blocked secondary memory accesses. A similar, transparent, parallel virtual memory programming environment for bulk synchronous parallel (BSP)-style parallel computing is presented.
