The OpenMP Application Program Interface (API) standardizes directive-based multi-language high-level parallelism that is performant, productive, and portable.

The OpenMP API supports parallel programming in C, C++, and Fortran on a range of platforms. It is jointly defined by a group of major computer hardware vendors, software vendors, software developers, and the OpenMP community. The OpenMP API provides a portable, scalable programming model that gives parallel programmers a simple and flexible interface for developing parallel applications for platforms ranging from shared-memory and multicore systems to embedded systems and coprocessor/accelerator devices.
