Going to Salt Lake City for Supercomputing 2012 next week? So are we!
Be sure to drop by and see us in the Cisco booth (#2517). I’ll be there, demonstrating and talking about our latest developments in ultra low latency Ethernet (hint: it includes 250ns port-to-port Ethernet switch latency and our latest MPI/OS-bypass technology on the Cisco Virtualized NIC in Cisco UCS servers).
In short: everyone assumes Ethernet is slow. Everyone is wrong.
I’ll also be one of the judges in the Student Cluster Competition. Be sure to drop by and see the teams; they make an amazing effort every year.
Finally, this isn’t really SC-related, but Cisco will be hosting the MPI Forum meeting again in December. Register and come join in the discussion that shapes HPC for the next 10 years.
Sorry; it’s a short blog entry this week — must get back to my SC preparations…
See you all in Salt Lake City next week!
