software architecture scalability. ➲ ASKAP technical computing plans show a desire for service oriented solutions (Humphreys, 2009). ➲ LOFAR computing also calls for a dynamic and adaptive high performance service architectures (Andresson, 2003).
run-time environment for dynamic task scheduling and load-balancing. ➲ Asynchronous low latency high performance messaging. ➲ Eclipse IDE plug-in. ➲ Offers a declarative language to facilitate problem definition and parallelization. ➲ Mainly executes on multi-core x86 architectures, however can facilitate other architectures.
