GASPI stands for Global Address Space Programming Interface and is a Partitioned Global Address Space (PGAS) API. It aims at extreme scalability, high flexibility and fault tolerance for parallel computing environments. GASPI aims to initiate a paradigm shift from bulk-synchronous two-sided communication patterns towards an asynchronous communication and execution model. To that end GASPI leverages remote completion and one-sided RDMA driven communication in a Partitioned Global Address Space.
