The design and implementation of a shared virtual memory (SVM) system for Intel iPSC/2 hypercube multicomputers are described. The SVM system provides clients on all the nodes with a large, coherent, shared address space supporting both the shared-memory and message-passing models of parallel programming. The authors have implemented a prototype SVM on the Intel iPSC/2 hypercube. The preliminary performance results indicate that SVM is an effective strategy for implementing the next generation of operating systems for hypercube multicomputers.
