Fans of the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors should be interested in a new whitepaper by Colfax International: Configuration and Benchmarks of Peer-to-Peer Communication over Gigabit Ethernet and InfiniBand in a Cluster with Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessors. Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors allow symmetric heterogeneous clustering models, in which MPI processes are run fully on coprocessors, as […]
“Now in Beta, COSMIC is NEC’s system software that enables seamless Xeon Phi coprocessor sharing. It is completely transparent to applications and all other system software components. COSMIC is useful in organizations where several users share one or more Xeon Phi-based servers, and it can thus reduce capital cost by efficiently utilizing fewer servers.”
