Webinar: Enhancing HPC Performance Through an Optimized Fabric

webinar

“Today’s High Performance Computing environments are more demanding than ever. To meet the needs of complex simulations and ever-increasing massive workloads, HPC clusters need to support faster, high core count processors, coprocessors, and higher node count clusters. Performance is key … but at what cost? In this webinar, you will learn about the factors that drive fabric performance and their impact on your investment in HPC; How the fabric is a key component of your overall HPC solution; and performance and price comparisons of some of the fabric choices available to you today.”
