Video: Intel Moves Omni-Path Forward for HPC

omni

“The Intel Omni-Path Architecture is designed to deliver the performance for tomorrow’s HPC workloads and the ability to scale to tens—and eventually hundreds—of thousands of nodes at a cost-competitive price to today’s fabrics. This next-generation fabric from Intel builds on the Intel True Scale Fabric with an end-to-end solution, including PCIe* adapters, silicon, switches, cables, and management software. Customers deploying Intel True Scale Fabric today will be able to migrate to Intel Omni-Path Architecture through an Intel upgrade program.”

New UCX Network Communication Framework for Next-Gen Programming Models

UCX

UCX is a collaboration between industry, laboratories, and academia to create an open-source production grade communication framework for HPC applications. “The path to Exascale, in addition to many other challenges, requires programming models where communications and computations unfold together, collaborating instead of competing for the underlying resources. In such an environment, providing holistic access to the hardware is a major component of any programming model or communication library. With UCX, we have the opportunity to provide not only a vehicle for production quality software, but also a low-level research infrastructure for more flexible and portable support for the Exascale-ready programming models.”

Offload vs Onload: How Mellanox Champions Flexibility and Scalability

A New Direction in HPC System Fabric: Intel’s Omni-Path Architecture

network

In this special guest feature, John Kirkley writes that Intel is using its new Omni-Path Architecture as a foundation for supercomputing systems that will scale to 200 Petaflops and beyond. “With its ability to scale to tens and eventually hundreds of thousands of nodes, the Intel Omni-Path Architecture is designed for tomorrow’s HPC workloads. The platform has its sights set squarely on Exascale performance while supporting more modest, but still demanding, future HPC implementations.”
