Regarding fault tolerance, this sounds interesting.
I haven't had a chance to do more than glimpse at the web page though (9:30 UK time and I need my coffee)

With the growth in the size of data, graphs, and scientific computing workloads, the ability to rapidly prototype and deploy robust parallel solutions by leveraging multiple servers/nodes, each containing multiple devices like multicore chips and GPUs, is a key enabler for raising productivity and accelerating discovery.  In this talk, we will review a novel programming runtime environment, Emerald, that augments the OpenMPI infrastructure to better express the management and execution of intra-node heterogeneous parallelism.
