Subject: [OMPI users] OpenMPI on the ARM processor architecture?
From: Ken Mighell (mighell_at_[hidden])

Dear OpenMPI,

Has there been any consideration of porting OpenMPI to the ARM
processor?

Plans are afoot to launch 7 ARM processors on a "Stage Coach" card in
a 3U
CubeSat. NASA's NMP (New Millennium Program) ST-8 (Space Technology 8)
DM (Dependable Multiprocessor) uses OpenMPI as the foundation for its
fault-tolerant cluster middleware. Thus the enquiry about the status
of OpenMPI
with the ARM architecture.

Sincerely yours,

Ken Mighell
