In this video from the 2017 MVAPICH User Group, DK Panda from Ohio State University presents: Overview of the MVAPICH Project and Future Roadmap.

“This talk will provide an overview of the MVAPICH project (past, present and future). Future roadmap and features for upcoming releases of the MVAPICH2 software family (including MVAPICH2-X, MVAPICH2-GDR, MVAPICH2-Virt, MVAPICH2-EA and MVAPICH2-MIC) will be presented. Current status and future plans for OSU INAM, OEMT and OMB will also be presented.”

MVAPICH is an open source implementation of Message Passing Interface (MPI) that delivers the best performance, scalability and fault tolerance for high-end computing systems and servers using InfiniBand, 10GigE/iWARP and RoCE networking technologies. MVAPICH2 simplifies the task of porting MPI applications to run on clusters with NVIDIA GPUs by supporting standard MPI calls from GPU device memory. It optimizes the data movement between host and GPU, and between GPUs in the best way possible while requiring minimal or no effort from the application developer.

Dr. Dhabaleswar K. (DK) Panda is a Professor and Distinguished Scholar of Computer Science at the Ohio State University. He obtained his Ph.D. in computer engineering from the University of Southern California. His research interests include parallel computer architecture, high performance networking, InfiniBand, network-based computing, exascale computing, programming models, GPUs and accelerators, high performance file systems and storage, virtualization and cloud computing and BigData (Hadoop (HDFS, MapReduce and HBase) and Memcached). He has published over 400 papers in major journals and international conferences related to these research areas.
