Wrap-up: Cisco at HPC for Wall Street

We recently returned from another great experience at the High Performance Computing Linux for Wall Street event in New York on April 7, 2014. This year’s 11th annual HPC conference focused on big data, HPC applications, data centers fabrics, cloud economics, low latency and how these technologies are all changing the way global financial markets are evolving. As usual, the industry’s top minds from various financial trading firms were in attendance to learn how to gain a competitive edge using the latest innovations in technology.Panel Closeup

New Open MPI stable series launched: v1.8

Open MPI is developed in a tick-tock fashion:

  • Odd-numbered series are focused on feature development and expansion
  • Even-numbered series are focused on stability and production usage

Sad panda.
