In this video, Matt Herreras and Josh Simons discuss recent developments in virtualization technologies for HPC. Please pay attention, folks. This stuff is going to change how we, as a community, get supercomputing done and it is happening now.
HPC Virtualization milestones at SC14:
- Demo of Self-provisioning of Virtual HPC clusters in a cloud environment.
- SR-IOV shared access to InfiniBand cards to multiple virtual machines, which is really important if you are trying to get access to parallel file systems like Lustre.
- New benchmarks showing near bare-metal performance on MPI applications over InfiniBand.
