400 GbE and HPC

John D’Ambrosia

“The need for 400 GbE goes beyond its actual use in the development of systems for the TOP500.” As noted by the TOP500 itself, as justification for the list, “These people wish to know not only the number of systems installed, but also the location of the various supercomputers within the high performance computing community and the applications for which a computer system is being used. Such statistics can facilitate the establishment of collaborations, the exchange of data and software, and provide a better understanding of the high performance computer market.”

Why the Industry Needs More HPC Performance Tool Developers
