面向服务的体系结构(Service-Oriented Architecture,SOA)是一个组件模型,它将应用程序的不同功能单元(称为服务)通过这些服务之间定义良好的接口和契约联系起来。接口是采用中立的方式进行定义的,它应该独立于实现服务的硬件平台、操作系统和编程语言。这使得构建在各种各样的系统中的服务可以使用一种统一和通用的方式进行交互。

The performance gap between CPU and memory widens continuously. Choosing the best memory layout for each hardware architecture is increasingly important as more and more programs become memory bound. For portable codes that run across heterogeneous hardware architectures, the choice of the memory layout for data structures is ideally decoupled from the rest of a program. This can be accomplished via a zero-runtime-overhead abstraction layer, underneath which memory layouts can be freely exchanged. We present the Low-Level Abstraction of Memory Access (LLAMA), a C++ library that provides such a data structure abstraction layer with example implementations for multidimensional arrays of nested, structured data. LLAMA provides fully C++ compliant methods for defining and switching custom memory layouts for user-defined data types. The library is extensible with third-party allocators. Providing two close-to-life examples, we show that the LLAMA-generated AoS (Array of Structs) and SoA (Struct of Arrays) layouts produce identical code with the same performance characteristics as manually written data structures. Integrations into the SPEC CPU\textsuperscript{\textregistered} lbm benchmark and the particle-in-cell simulation PIConGPU demonstrate LLAMA's abilities in real-world applications. LLAMA's layout-aware copy routines can significantly speed up transfer and reshuffling of data between layouts compared with naive element-wise copying. LLAMA provides a novel tool for the development of high-performance C++ applications in a heterogeneous environment.
