Mont Blanc Targets Scientific Applications for Energy Efficient HPC

  While many are looking at ARM-based processing as the future of energy-efficient HPC, it won’t get far without applications. Now, the Mont Blanc project has published a list of key scientific apps to be ported to the platform. The Mont Blanc project aims to assess the potential of low-power embedded components based clusters to […]

Interview: OpenFabrics Alliance Looks Ahead

In this video, Jim Ryan and Paul Grun from OFA discuss where OpenFabrics is headed in the future. Open Fabrics began as a way of providing a memory-to-memory messaging service from application to application. So, fundamentally, that’s what sets OpenFabrics apart from any other network. Typically networks are about delivering packets from one platform to […]
