Remote-memory-access models, also known as one-sided communication models, are becoming an interesting alternative to traditional two-sided communication models in the field of High Performance Computing. While remote-memory-access communication primitives are available in the latest version of the Message-Passing Interface, MPI-3, using it efficiently is challenging, in particular if one needs to exploit data-locality on hierarchical, distributed systems, and at the same time overlap computation and communication to hide communication latencies. In this paper we extend previous work on MPI-based and data-locality aware remote-memory-access models with a asynchronous progress-engine for non- blocking communication operations.
