AXIS delivers the ability to significantly optimize communications between processors, enabling processing resources to be used more efficiently. It provides extreme flexibility of transports, including InfiniBand®, RoCE, TCP, UDP, Posix shared memory, KNEM shared memory and GPU IPC. It uniquely supports heterogeneous architectures including multiple processor architectures (Power PC/Power Architecture, Intel, ARM) and operating systems (Windows, Linux, VxWorks).
In addition to simplifying application development, AXIS creates a layer of abstraction between the application and the hardware and operating system. This independence offers the added benefits of portability and scalability.
