Acoran: The Standards-Based Platform for Exascale and AI

Building products like self-driving-cars or supercomputers requires very high performance software and hardware. This is only possible with a fully-featured software platform that provides: programmability, optimized processor-specific routines and a wide ecosystem of domain-specific optimized libraries. All of this needs to be high performance, well maintained and constantly tested. Codeplay believes this is only possible with a mix of open-standard and open-source software. Acoran integrates all the open-standards, open-source libraries and device-specific optimized routines that developers need, all in a fully-tested, supported and maintained package.

Acoran is the production-ready, fully-open software platform for exascale and artificial intelligence. Compatible with a wide range of open standards (SYCL™, OpenCL™, SPIR-V™ and oneAPI) as well as supporting high quality full-featured frameworks like TensorFlow™ or Eigen; Acoran takes software acceleration out of the lab and into production.

Why Use Acoran?

Building your AI or HPC product with Acoran means it will be high performance, standards compliant and production quality. Acoran integrates all the open standard technologies required to leverage accelerator processors with all the open-source libraries needed to write AI and HPC software all in a fully-tested, integrated platform.

The Acoran platform is fully open and programmable. Everything in Acoran is either open standard or open-source. The Acoran platform is also tested for each accelerator we support, with extensive platform validation to ensure that everything is production quality and ready to go.

The rapid growth of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is stimulating the development of processor and accelerator hardware designs, while software frameworks are adapting to keep pace with the latest machine learning techniques.

In order to take advantage of this AI revolution, processors and accelerators need to offer compatible solutions for software developers that integrate with existing software frameworks and technologies.

Codeplay's Acoran provides all the performance and programmability solutions that accelerator processors need, delivering a software platform that accelerates a range of AI software on a wide range of hardware platforms using industry standards.

Codeplay has been involved in the definition of industry open standards since 2002, developing many solutions using them, and gaining a reputation as a leader in enabling the latest processors. Codeplay is especially focused on the SYCL, OpenCL, SPIR-V and ISO C++ standards where the company has made significant contributions. These open standards are being used to enable the latest AI software and make full use of the performance of the latest processors and accelerators.

The technology Codeplay develops is also being used in High Performance Computing (HPC) to enable acceleration of complex scientific software.

Codeplay is already working extensively with processor companies and is capable of delivering the Acoran platform for processors supplied by, but not limited to, Intel, AMD®, Nvidia®, Renesas™, Arm® and Imagination™.
