When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side
is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own
schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal
schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook
calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be
stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your
own schedule to guide you through the week.
You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.
High Performance SMP on Clusters with Kernel-Level Software
SESSION: Novel & Future Architectures I
EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forum
TIME: 2:30PM - 3:00PM
ABSTRACT: Kernel-level software-based Symmetric Multi-Processing (SMP) supercomputing clusters of up to 3 homogeneous server nodes were introduced in 2011. With the new 16-core AMD Interlagos processors, SMP supercomputers with 192 cores and 1.54 TB of shared memory are now available for well under €100K. Next year, kernel-level software-based SMP supercomputing clusters of 32 nodes will be introduced – that is SMP supercomputers with 2048 cores and 16 TB of shared memory for under €1 million.
During this session, we will explore key issues for kernel-level software-based SMP supercomputing. How global memory speed and memory coherency is maintained across multiple homogeneous server nodes. How the advent of high-speed interconnects between homogeneous server nodes in a cluster enables SMP computing. And, why kernel-level software-based SMP supercomputing is the next logical evolution to proprietary hardware and hypervisor software approaches to SMP supercomputing.
