High Performance Computing Networking

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 co-hosting the Open MPI State of the Union BOF with George Bosilca from the University of Tennessee in the Wednesday noon timeslot (room 155B).

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!

  1. Not everyone assumes Ethernet is slow, but your last ultra-low latency Ethernet was not that ultra. Will it be lower this time ?
