OrionX Reports Position InfiniBand as the Leading HPI Technology and Mellanox the Leading Vendor

“For now, InfiniBand and its vendor community, notably Mellanox appear to have the upper hand from a performance and market presence perspective, but with Intel entering the HPI market, and new server architectures based on ARM and Power making a new claim on high performance servers, it is clear that a new industry phase is beginning. A healthy war chest combined with a well-executed strategy can certainly influence a successful outcome.”

SC15 HPC Transforms – but how, what, where, when, why and for whom?

In this special guest feature from the Print’nFly Guide to SC15 in Austin, Peter ffoulkes from OrionX looks at how HPC Transforms. “If we thought the last five years were disruptive, we may not have seen anything yet, and in many ways the HPC community will continue to lead that transformation, even if it does not always receive recognition for that leadership. The general enterprise market shift towards a data-centric focus, based upon “big-data”, the impending deluge of sensor data from “The Internet of Things”, and real-time analytics using in-memory databases could be the best thing that has happened to the HPC community in decades.”
