MVAPICH User Group Returns to Ohio Aug. 19-21

MVAPICH-StackedThe MVAPICH team has posted their agenda for the 3rd annual MVAPICH User Group (MUG) meeting. Sponsored by Mellanox and the Ohio Supercomputer Center, MUG will take place August 19-21 in Columbus, Ohio, USA.

MUG will provide an open forum for all attendees (users,system administrators, researchers, engineers, and students) to discuss and share their knowledge on using MVAPICH with large-scale systems and for a diverse set of applications. The program features talks from many organizations: Baidu, Dell, Georgia Institute of Technology, Intel, Mellanox, Northeastern University, NVIDIA, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Ohio State University, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, San Diego Supercomputer Center, Systap, Texas Advanced Computing Center, Univ. of Michigan, and Univ. of Tennessee.

The MVAPICH2 software, supporting MPI 3.0 standard, delivers best performance, scalability and fault tolerance for high-end computing systems and servers using InfiniBand, 10GigE/iWARP and RoCE networking technologies. This software is being used by more than 2,425 organizations world-wide in 75 countries (Current Users) to extract the potential of these emerging networking technologies for modern systems. As of Jul ’15, more than 277,000 downloads have taken place from this project’s site. This software is also being distributed by many InfiniBand, 10GigE/iWARP and RoCE vendors in their software distributions.

The MVAPICH2-X software package provides support for hybrid MPI+PGAS (UPC and OpenSHMEM) programming models with unified communication runtime for emerging exascale systems. The MVAPICH2-GDR package provides support for clusters with NVIDIA GPUs supporting the GPUDirect RDMA feature. The MVAPICH2-Virt package provides support for high performance and scalable MPI in a cloud computing environment with InfiniBand and SR-IOV. The MVAPICH2-MIC package provides support for clusters with Intel MIC coprocessors.

MVAPICH2 software is powering several supercomputers in the TOP500 list. Examples (from the July ’15 ranking) include:

  • 8th, 519,640-core (Stampede) at TACC
  • 11th, 185,344-core (Pleiades) at NASA
  • 22nd, 76,032-core (Tsubame 2.5) at Tokyo Institute of Technology
