Intel® SIMD Data Layout Templates

Intel® SIMD Data Layout Templates (Intel® SDLT) is a template library providing C++ template containers allowing use of an array of "Plain Old Data" (POD) structure that use an in-memory layout to encourage SIMD vector code generation. The Intel SDLT offers C++ template interfaces using C++11 so it does not require any special compiler support to work; but because of its SIMD-friendly layout it can better take advantage of the Intel® compiler's performance features i.e. OpenMP* SIMD extensions, Intel® Cilk™ Plus SIMD extensions, and SIMD/IVDEP pragmas.
To simply put Intel® SDLT library provides an Array of Structure interface to the user but stores the data in Structure of Array format in memory.
