Appentra is a technology company providing software tools for guided parallelization in high-performance computing and HPC-like technologies.
Appentra was founded in 2012 as a spin-off from the University of A Coruña. Dr. Manuel Arenaz and his team were conducting research in the area of advanced compilation techniques to improve the performance in high-performance parallel computing codes. Specifically, Dr. Arenaz’s team was focused on the static program analysis for parallelization of sequential scientific applications that use sparse computations, automatic parallelism discovery, and development of parallelizing code transformations for sparse applications.
This led to an idea: Develop a set of tools, The Parallware Suite, that help users manage the complexity of parallel programming, keep up with leading industrial standards, and not only parallelizes the code but train users how to parallelize their code. By using Parallware Suite, users can take control of their parallel applications, improve productivity in their output, and release the full potential of HPC in their environment.
