OSC Hosts fifth MVAPICH Users Group

A broad array of system administrators, developers, researchers and students who share an interest in the MVAPICH open-source library for high performance computing will gather this week for the fifth meeting of the MVAPICH Users Group (MUG). “Dr. Panda’s library is a cornerstone for HPC machines around the world, including OSC’s systems and many of the Top 500,” said Dave Hudak, Ph.D., interim executive director of OSC. “We’ve gained a lot of insight and expertise from partnering with DK and his research group throughout the years.”

Rock Stars of HPC: DK Panda

As our newest Rock Star of HPC, DK Panda sat down with us to discuss his passion for teaching High Performance Computing. “During the last several years, HPC systems have been going through rapid changes to incorporate accelerators. The main software challenges for such systems have been to provide efficient support for programming models with high performance and high productivity. For NVIDIA-GPU based systems, seven years back, my team introduced a novel `CUDA-aware MPI’ concept. This paradigm allows complete freedom to application developers for not using CUDA calls to perform data movement.”

High-Performance and Scalable Designs of Programming Models for Exascale Systems

“This talk will focus on challenges in designing programming models and runtime environments for Exascale systems with millions of processors and accelerators to support various programming models. We will focus on MPI+X (PGAS – OpenSHMEM/UPC/CAF/UPC++, OpenMP, and CUDA) programming models by taking into account support for multi-core systems (KNL and OpenPower), high-performance networks, GPGPUs (including GPUDirect RDMA), and energy-awareness.”

Building Efficient HPC Clouds with MCAPICH2 and RDMA-Hadoop over SR-IOV IB Clusters

Xiaoyi Lu from Ohio State University presented this talk at the Open Fabrics Workshop. “Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) technology has been steadily gaining momentum for high performance interconnects such as InfiniBand. SR-IOV can deliver near native performance but lacks locality-aware communication support. This talk presents an efficient approach to building HPC clouds based on MVAPICH2 and RDMA-Hadoop with SR-IOV.”

Overview of the MVAPICH Project and Future Roadmap

In this video from the 4th Annual 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.”
