BLAS-on-Flash Project Files
BLAS-on-Flash implements a small subset of BLAS routines (BLAS-2/3) that work with matrices/vectors stored on flash storage. In addition to BLAS routines, BlasonFlash also provides other routines like kmeans, sort, map, reduce for large-scale processing on disk-resident data. Currently, only the following routines are supported.
