For real-time deployments like financial services, the most current advancement to come along in the last two decades is the revolution of non-volatile memory as a persistent memory tier. We are only scratching the surface of how this new memory tier can be used to build systems that outperform and outscale similar systems that were built in the last few years. This technology allows reinventing all kind of software from database to messaging systems.
Today Mellanox announced that their FDR InfiniBand-powered RDMA Solution Enables 2X Faster Access to File Storage.
Over at the Mellanox Blog, Scot Schultz writes that Mellanox has released “Deploying HPC Clusters with Mellanox InfiniBand Interconnect Solutions,” a guide on how to design, build, and test an HPC cluster. High-performance simulations require the most efficient compute platforms. The execution time of a given simulation depends upon many factors, such as the number […]
Today Mellanox announced the general availability of its new MetroX series of long-haul, low latency RDMA interconnect solutions.
In this talk, we will describe the challenges with live migration over SR-IOV enabled InfiniBand devices, and evaluate the first available prototype implementation of live migration over SR-IOV enabled InfiniBand devices.
The dragonfly topology has been proposed as an efficient alternative to the fat tree. This talk presents a study of the blocking and scalability characteristics of the dragonfly, and compares this to the well-known fat tree topology.
In this video from the HPC Advisory Council Spain Conference 2013, Pedro J. Garcia presents: High-Performance Interconnection Networks on the Road to Exascale HPC: Challenges and Solutions. One of the challenges of that interconnect researchers face today is how to efficiently interconnect the huge number of processors expected to be present in future exascale systems. […]
This week Mellanox announced that its end-to-end, FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand interconnect solutions provide industry-leading performance for compute-intensive applications running on the new Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v2 product family. With up to 30 percent better performance, applications running on Ivy Bridge processors and Mellanox’s FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand solutions do more, faster, thereby lowering product design […]
