NVIDIA InfiniBand Adaptive Routing Technology

In this white paper, we’ll look at how adaptive routing from NVIDIA plays such an important role, eliminating congestion and increasing data center performance. InfiniBand adaptive routing technology reroutes data to eliminate congestion, and therefore, increases data center performance. As presented, both HPC applications and AI applications utilizing adaptive routing achieve higher performance. Adaptive routing is an important network element that drives your HPC systems toward new levels of utilization that increase return on investment.

It’s Time to Resolve the Root Cause of Congestion

Today, every high-performance computing (HPC) workload running globally faces the same crippling issue: Congestion in the network.

Congestion can delay workload completion times for crucial scientific and enterprise workloads, making HPC systems unpredictable and leaving high-cost cluster resources waiting for delayed data to arrive. Despite various brute-force attempts to resolve the congestion issue, the problem has persisted. Until now.

In this paper, Matthew Williams, CTO at Rockport Networks, explains how recent innovations in networking technologies have led to a new network architecture that targets the root causes of HPC network congestion, specifically:

– Why today’s network architectures are not a sustainable approach to HPC workloads
– How HPC workload congestion and latency issues are directly tied to the network architecture
– Why a direct interconnect network architecture minimizes congestion and tail latency

Six Smarter Scheduling Techniques For Optimizing EDA Productivity

Workload management plays a crucial role in helping design teams share limited resources, boost simulation throughput, and maximize productivity. In this paper, Altair discusses six valuable techniques to help improve design center productivity. By adopting these techniques and products in the Altair® Accelerator™ portfolio, organizations can realize higher levels of efficiency and performance and dramatically improve productivity with smarter workload scheduling.
