VMware Makes Progress on Virtualizing HPC

In this video, Matt Herreras and Josh Simons discuss recent developments in virtualization technologies for HPC. Please pay attention, folks. This stuff is going to change how we, as a community, get supercomputing done and it is happening now.

HPC Virtualization milestones at SC14:

  • Demo of Self-provisioning of Virtual HPC clusters in a cloud environment.
  • SR-IOV shared access to InfiniBand cards to multiple virtual machines, which is really important if you are trying to get access to parallel file systems like Lustre.
  • New benchmarks showing near bare-metal performance on MPI applications over InfiniBand.
