%X Although concurrency is generally perceived to be a hard
subject, it can in fact be very simple, provided that the
underlying model is simple. The occam\-pi parallel
processing language provides such a simple yet powerful
concurrency model that is based on CSP and the pi\-calculus.
This paper presents pony, the occam\-pi Network Environment.
occam\-pi and pony provide a new, unified, concurrency model
that bridges inter\- and intra\-processor concurrency. This
enables the development of distributed applications in a
transparent, dynamic and highly scalable way. The first part
of this paper discusses the philosophy behind pony, explains
how it is used, and gives a brief overview of its
implementation. The second part evaluates pony\[rs]s
performance by presenting a number of benchmarks.
