Today Mellanox announced the availability of new software drivers for RoCE (RDMA over Converged Ethernet). The new drivers are designed to simplify RDMA (Remote Direct Memory Access) deployments on Ethernet networks and enable high-end performance using RoCE, without requiring the network to be configured for lossless operation. This enables cloud, storage, and enterprise customers to deploy RoCE more quickly and easily while accelerating application performance, improving infrastructure efficiency and reducing cost.
Today the HPC Advisory Council announced its Fourth Annual RDMA Programming Competition in China. Designed to support undergraduate curriculum and talent development, this unique hands-on competition furthers students study, experience and mastery.
Tejas Karmarkar from Microsoft presented this talk at SC15. “Azure provides on-demand compute resources that enable you to run large parallel and batch compute jobs in the cloud. Extend your on-premises HPC cluster to the cloud when you need more capacity, or run work entirely in Azure. Scale easily and take advantage of advanced networking features such as RDMA to run true HPC applications using MPI to get the results you want, when you need them.”
At insideHPC, are very pleased to publish the Print ‘n Fly Guide to SC15 in Austin. We designed this Guide to be an in-flight magazine custom tailored for your journey to SC15 — the world’s largest gathering of high performance computing professionals.
With the explosion of data over the past few years, data storage has become a hot topic among corporate decision makers. It is no longer sufficient to have adequate space for the massive quantities of data that must be stored; it is just as critical that stored data be accessible without any bottlenecks that impede the ability to process and analyze data in real time.
In this video from the 2015 OFS Workshop, Liran Liss from Mellanox presents: RDMA Container Support.
Today Mellanox announced its ConnectX-4 Lx 10/25/40/50 Gigabit Ethernet adapter, delivering optimal cost-performance and scalable connectivity for Cloud, Web 2.0 and storage platforms. As the first adapter designed to serve as a direct replacement for commonly deployed 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapters, the ConnectX-4 Lx allows businesses to migrate to higher-performance technology as their bandwidth requirements increase without demanding an infrastructure overhaul or added operating expense.
Today Chelsio Communications announced that its T5 iWARP RDMA over Ethernet adapters now fully support NVIDIA GPUDirect RDMA technology.
In this video from the 2015 OFS Developer’s Workshop, Parav Pandit from Emulex presents: Virtual RDMA Devices.
The main motivation for Multipath RDMA is to support three types of features: Failovers and High Availability Support, Bandwidth Aggregation, and L3 datacenter support.
