The Swarm Architecture

Making Multicore Parallelism Pervasive


Get Started with Swarm

The Swarm project aims to scale hard-to-parallelize applications through research in programming models and multicore architectures. Our goal is to enable programmers to write efficient and scalable parallel programs as easily as they write sequential programs today.
