Abstract

Distributed Places bring new support for distributed, message-passing parallelism to Racket. This paper gives an overview of the programming model and how we had to modify our existing, runtime-system to support distributed places. We show that the freedom to design the programming model helped us to make the implementation tractable. The paper presents an evaluation of the design, examples of higher-level API’s that can be built on top of distributed places, and performance results of standard parallel benchmarks.
