In this video from the OpenFabrics Workshop, Sean Hefty from Intel presents: Advancing Open Fabrics Interfaces.
“With its initial release two years ago, libfabric advanced the state of fabric software interfaces. One of the promises of OFI was extensibility: adapting to increased demands of fabric services from applications. This session explores the first major enhancements to the libfabric API in response to user demands and learnings.”
