HPC Virtualization and Workload Agility

HPC Workload Agility

Virtualization allows workloads to be compartmentalized in their own VM in order to take full advantage of the underlying parallelism of today’s multicore, heterogeneous HPC systems without compromising security. This approach is particularly beneficial for organizations centralizing multiple groups on to a shared cluster or for teams with security issues – for example, a life sciences environment where access to genomic data needs to be restricted to specific researchers.

“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.”
