“This talk will focus on programming models and their designs for upcoming exascale systems with millions of processors and accelerators. Current status and future trends of MPI and PGAS (UPC and OpenSHMEM) programming models will be presented. We will discuss challenges in designing runtime environments for these programming models by taking into account support for multi-core, high-performance networks, GPGPUs, Intel MIC, scalable collectives (multi-core-aware, topology-aware, and power-aware), non-blocking collectives using Offload framework, one-sided RMA operations, schemes and architectures for fault-tolerance/fault-resilience.”
Arista Networks filed for an initial public offering today. Founded by Andy Bechtolsheim, Arista builds switches that handle traffic at large internet data centers for companies including Facebook Inc, Yahoo Inc, Comcast Corp and Citigroup Inc. The company said it would raise $200 million from the offering, but the final size of the IPO could vary.
In this video from GTC 2014, Steve Oberlin from Nvidia describes his new role as Chief Technical Officer for Accelerated Computing. Along the way, he discusses: the HPC lessons learned from the CRAY T3E and other systems, Nvidia’s plans to tackle the challenges of the HPC Memory Wall, the current status on Project Denver, and how Nvidia plans to couple to the POWER architecture in future systems.
