Podcast: RCE & Rex Computing Look at the Open Compute Project

RCE Podcast logo

In this RCE Podcast, Brock Palen and Jeff Squyres discuss the Open Compute Project with Thomas Sohmers from Rex Computing. “Thomas Sohmers is the founder and CEO of REX Computing. His experience includes working at the MIT Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies for 3 years as both an end user of HPC systems, and later transitioning into designing and building them at the lab. This experience led to starting REX Computing in 2013 as a recipient of the Peter Thiel ’20 under 20′ Fellowship, where he leads the architectural design and business operations.”

Video: Nvidia’s Path to Exascale

“The end of Dennard scaling has made all computing power limited, so that performance is determined by energy efficiency. With improvements in process technology offering little increase in efficiency innovations in architecture and circuits are required to maintain the expected performance scaling. The large scale parallelism and deep storage hierarchy of future machines poses programming challenges. Future programming systems must allow the programmer to express their code in a high-level, target-independent manner and optimize the target-dependent decisions of mapping available parallelism in time and space. This talk will discuss these challenges in more detail and introduce some of the technologies being developed to address them.”
