barry2In this video from SC15, Barry Davis from Intel describes the ecosystem for the newly launched Intel Omni-Path fabric and Scalable System Framework.

“Intel Omni-Path Architecture (Intel OPA), an element of Intel Scalable System Framework, delivers the performance for tomorrow’s high performance computing (HPC) workloads and the ability to scale to tens of thousands of nodes—and eventually more—at a price competitive with today’s fabrics. The Intel OPA 100 Series product line is an end-to-end solution of PCIe adapters, silicon, switches, cables, and management software. As the successor to Intel® True Scale Fabric, this optimized HPC fabric is built upon a combination of enhanced IP and Intel technology.”

For software applications, Intel OPA will maintain consistency and compatibility with existing Intel True Scale Fabric and InfiniBand APIs by working through the open source OpenFabrics Alliance (OFA) software stack on leading Linux distribution releases. Intel True Scale Fabric customers will be able to migrate to Intel OPA through an upgrade program.”
