Cosmic - System Software for Efficient Xeon Phi Coprocessor Sharing

COSMIC* is NEC’s system software that enables seamless Xeon Phi coprocessor sharing. It is completely transparent to applications and all other system software components. COSMIC is useful in organizations where several users share one or more Xeon Phi-based servers. It can reduce capital cost by efficiently utilizing fewer servers.
