Slidecast: Intel Omni-Path Architecture – A World Class High Performance Interconnect

Scott Misage, Intel

In this slidecast, Scott Misage from Intel is our guest on the Rich Report. As the General Manager of the Intel Omni-Path Business Unit, Scott has a lot to say about scalability, performance, and market momentum for this powerful interconnect technology. He also provides a preview of ISC 2017, where Intel Omni-Path will be in the spotlight as a rising star on the TOP500.

“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.”
