In this episode of This Week in HPC, Michael Feldman and Addison Snell from Intersect360 Research discuss the new Intel Omni Scale Fabric as well as IBM’s plans plans to add an InfiniBand high-speed data transfer option to its SoftLayer cloud before the end of the third quarter of 2014.
This week Nvidia salutes Women who use CUDA for incredible science and engineering. They’ve compiled 30 profiles so far, and the advice they share from their experiences is quite inspiring. “It’s a good way to remind people that women write code, participate in open-source projects, and invent things,” said Lorena Barba from George Washington University. “It’s important to make the technology world more attractive to female students and show them examples of women who are innovators.”
“As displayed at ISC’14, DEEP combines a standard InfiniBand cluster of Intel Xeon nodes, with a new, highly scalable ‘booster’ consisting of Phi co-processors and a high-performance 3D torus network from Extoll, the German interconnect company spun out of the University of Heidelberg.”
