Industries across the board have become increasingly dependant on compute-heavy tasks, from rapid customer-facing web transactions to genome simulations that require millions of calculations per second. Such a heavy workload has taken its toll on today's networks, bogging down Ethernet connections and causing existing adapter architectures to become performance bottlenecks. The primary networking performance metric has been increased bandwidth, but lately the industry has become more focused on lower latency to facilitate high-performance computing across a broad set of enterprise data center applications.
To address this topic, several industry representatives will participate in a panel discussion at Interop New York entitled "Low Latency Networking: How Low Can it Go." This is a panel for network vendors and end users who want to learn more about the differences between technologies such as RDMA, iWARP, InfiniBand and low-latency Ethernet that all promise drastic reduction in latency. Panel participants include Craig Easley, marketing director for Level 5 Networks, Jaime Riotto, director of engineering at the server virtualization business unit of Cisco Systems and Asaf Somekh, director of marketing at Voltaire. Rick Thompson, senior analyst at Heavy Reading, will moderate the panel.
The presentation will take place on Thursday, December 15, 2005 at 10:15 a.m. to 11:15 a.m., Javits Convention Center, New York, NY. For further details, visit http://www.interop.com/newyork/education/full_program.php#1134633600
10/30/2013 | Cray, DDN, Mellanox, NetApp, ScaleMP, Supermicro, Xyratex | Creating data is easy… the challenge is getting it to the right place to make use of it. This paper discusses fresh solutions that can directly increase I/O efficiency, and the applications of these solutions to current, and new technology infrastructures.
10/01/2013 | IBM | A new trend is developing in the HPC space that is also affecting enterprise computing productivity with the arrival of “ultra-dense” hyper-scale servers.
Ken Claffey, SVP and General Manager at Xyratex, presents ClusterStor at the Vendor Showdown at ISC13 in Leipzig, Germany.
Join HPCwire Editor Nicole Hemsoth and Dr. David Bader from Georgia Tech as they take center stage on opening night at Atlanta's first Big Data Kick Off Week, filmed in front of a live audience. Nicole and David look at the evolution of HPC, today's big data challenges, discuss real world solutions, and reveal their predictions. Exactly what does the future holds for HPC?
