Post-Exascale Fabric: NNSA Awards Cornelis Networks $18M for High Performance Network R&D

Those who gave up for dead Intel’s Omni-Path fabric, which Intel began working on 2012 and stopped supporting seven years later, may want to re-think that. Cornelis Networks, the company breathing life into Omni-Path since 2020, has won an $18 million R&D contract from the U.S. National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). The award is part of DOE’s Next-Generation High Performance Computing Network (NG-HPCN) project….

Why HPC Clusters Require Ultra-Low Latency Network Monitoring

High performance computing (HPC) requires an extremely high-powered network with ultra-low latency to move large files between HPC nodes quickly. IT and network operations (NetOps) teams in industries such as financial service, oil and gas, animation/3D rendering and pharmaceutical research need to monitor their networks in exacting detail to ensure they can support HPC workloads. But monitoring latency and other metrics at HPC-class performance levels creates a new set of challenges, including monitoring packets at 40Gbps and 100Gbps speeds, measuring latency at millisecond and nanosecond intervals, and detecting miniscule “microbursts” of traffic before they cause performance issues.
