Securboration Awarded Contract for Automated Multi-Processor Conversion Capability for Legacy Software

Securboration has been awarded a contract by the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) to develop techniques for automatically parallelizing existing sequential code. Processor speeds have plateaued and manufacturers have turned to multi-processor architectures to increase computing power. The cost of purchasing new multi-processor hardware is small in comparison to the cost of rewriting sequential legacy software to take advantage of the multi-processor environment. Securboration is creating the Tri-tier Architectural Modeling Environment (TAME) to provide an automated way to convert legacy sequential software into multi-threaded software that is fully capable of exploiting multiple processors. TAME will involve profiling, parallelizing, optimizing, and verifying of the software without changing the source code. This novel approach aims to allow existing legacy code to be improved in regard to performance while not requiring any of the source code to be rewritten and retested therefore providing significant cost savings and minimize risk.
