It’s that time of the year again. The most important event for the InfiniBand Trade Association and the InfiniBand community at large is upon us – Supercomputing ’09 (SC’09) taking place in Portland, Oregon from November 14-20.
This year’s event promises to be an impressive gathering of the top minds in high-performance computing with expected attendance of 11,000 researchers, scientists, engineers and computing experts from around the world. InfiniBand will certainly have a strong presence and showing at the event with 16 IBTA members exhibiting, a slew of expected InfiniBand-related product announcements from the entire ecosystem, and of course, InfiniBand-related demos set up all over the show floor.
The SCinet InfiniBand network – being installed as I write this – will see a substantial speed increase this year – up to 120Gb/s connectivity throughout the entire network. More than 20 exhibitors will be showcasing SCinet and the demonstration is expected to be an SC’09 highlight.
The IBTA will also have a 10×20 booth, special logo, collateral, signage, giveaways and presentations to highlight and celebrate its 10-year anniversary.
We’re hoping you will stop by booth #139 and visit us, especially Monday night from 7-9pm, as we will be hosting a 10-Year Anniversary Cocktail Reception.
