“Over the years the OpenFabrics Alliance has developed a record of technology leadership, and you only get that kind of leadership thinking through the sort of face-to-face collaboration that occurs at the annual workshops. These workshops are where I/O technologists from all branches of the computing world can gather in an environment that fosters creative solutions to problems such as those posed by emerging Exascale computing. The outcome of these workshops ends up being a key driver in focusing the OFA’s efforts in continuing to push I/O technology forward.”
