Unified Collective Communication (UCC)

UCC is an open-source project to provide an API and library implementation of collective (group) communication operations for applications in various domains including High-Performance Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Data Center, and I/O. The goal of UCC is to provide highly performant and scalable collective operations leveraging scalable and topology-aware algorithms, software implementation techniques and In-Network Computing hardware acceleration engines. It collaborates with UCX and utilizes UCX’s highly performant point-to-point communication operations and library utilities. The ideas, design, and implementation of UCC are drawn from the experience of multiple collective projects including Mellanox’s HCOLL and SHARP, Huawei’s UCG, open-source Cheetah, and IBM’s PAMI Collectives.

UCC is a project of the UCF consortium.
