Now-a-days, many-core processors emerge as a serious alternative to regular processors by offering high computing performances while controlling power consumption. As for every complex parallel and distributed systems, data sharing and data consistency is of major importance. In this paper, the authors propose a short overview of one particular coherency protocol, the data sliding mechanism, based on cooperative caching. They also present some perspectives to this paper, and its global integration within a complete system.
