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.
In this video from the 2014 HPC Advisory Council Europe Conference, Rich Graham from Mellanox presents: Scalable HPC Communication Capabilities.
“This talk will focus on latest developments and future plans for the MVAPICH2 and MVAPICH2-X projects. For the MVAPICH2 project, we will focus on scalable and highly-optimized designs for pt-to-pt communication (two-sided and one-sided MPI-3 RMA), collective communication (blocking and MPI-3 non-blocking), support for GPGPUs and Intel MIC, support for MPI-T interface and schemes for fault-tolerance/fault-resilience. For the MVAPICH2-X project, will focus on efficient support for hybrid MPI and PGAS (UPC and OpenSHMEM) programming model with unified runtime.”
“Today’s data center managers are burdened by a lack of aligned information of multiple layers. Work-flow events like ‘job starts’ aligned with performance metrics and events extracted from log facilities are low-hanging fruit that is on the edge to become use-able due to open-source software like Graphite, StatsD, logstash and alike. This talk aims to show off the benefits of merging multiple layers of information within an InfiniBand cluster by using use-cases for level 1/2/3 personnel.”
In this video from the OpenFabrics International Developer Workshop 2014, Brian Hausauer from Intel presents an iWARP Update. “The Internet Wide Area RDMA Protocol (iWARP) is a computer networking protocol for transferring data efficiently. It is sometimes referred to simply as “RDMA”, though RDMA is not a feature exclusive to iWARP.”
