By Gilad Shainer, Mellanox Technologies The ever-growing demand for higher performance in the world of supercomputing requires interconnect solutions provide increasingly faster speeds, extreme low latency and continuous additions of smart offloading and acceleration engines. In a parallel computing environment, the interconnect is the computer and the heart of the datacenter. Proprietary [...]
By Bill Lee In August 1999, the InfiniBand® Trade Association (IBTA) was formed by a group of industry leaders with a plan to develop the InfiniBand architecture, providing a RDMA fabric with high-performance, scalability and programmability to interconnect data centers across the world. In 2015, following the success of InfiniBand, the IBTA [...]
By Scot Schultz High Performance Computing (HPC) in the cloud has the potential to improve a wide variety of industries, but this trend is not impressive simply based on its potential—there are already real world cloud applications leveraging HPC today that have led to incredible accomplishments. HPC in the cloud has enabled [...]
High performance computing has been integral to solving large-scale problems across many industries, including science, engineering and business. Some of the most interesting use cases have come out of NASA, where supercomputing is essential to conduct accurate simulations and models for a variety of missions. NASA's flagship supercomputer, Pleiades, is among the [...]
Newly released TOP500 list signals continued adoption of the latest generation of InfiniBand among the world’s most powerful supercomputers.
The week of Supercomputing went by quickly and resulted in many interesting discussions around supercomputing and its role in both HPC environments and enterprise data centers. Now that we’re back to work, we’d like to reflect back on the successful supercomputing event. The conference this year saw a huge diversity of attendees [...]
