Lightweight Containerization of Computing Resources

SwLoc is a library for flexible and generic partitioning of computing resources (CPU, accelerators). It allows applications to create contexts (i.e. resource partitions) and run parallel codes inside such lightweight containers. Many libraries developed using OpenMP, Pthreads or Intel TBB can ben executed concurrently with little or no modification. SwLoc also features dynamic context resizing capabilities that enables parallel applications to perform resource negotiation.
