In this video, Barry Davis from Intel describes how the company is moving forward with its Omni-Path interconnect technology for high performance computing.
“The Intel Omni-Path Architecture is designed to deliver the performance for tomorrow’s HPC workloads and the ability to scale to tens—and eventually hundreds—of thousands of nodes at a cost-competitive price to today’s fabrics. This next-generation fabric from Intel builds on the Intel True Scale Fabric with an end-to-end solution, including PCIe* adapters, silicon, switches, cables, and management software. Customers deploying Intel True Scale Fabric today will be able to migrate to Intel Omni-Path Architecture through an Intel upgrade program.”
According to the Davis, Intel Omni-Path Architecture (Intel OPA) is now sampling with OEM system vendors and is expected to be supported in over 100 switches and server platforms at launch. Intel OPA is expected to begin shipping in production by end of year.
