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.
S02: InfiniBand and High-Speed Ethernet for Dummies
SESSION: S02: InfiniBand and High-Speed Ethernet for Dummies
EVENT TYPE: Tutorial
TIME: 8:30AM - 12:00PM
Presenter(s):Dhabaleswar K. (DK) Panda, Hari Subramoni
ABSTRACT: InfiniBand (IB) and High-speed Ethernet (HSE) technologies are generating a lot of excitement towards building next generation High-End Computing (HEC) systems including clusters, datacenters, file systems, storage and cloud computing environments. This tutorial will provide an overview of these emerging technologies, their offered features, current market standing, and suitability for prime-time HEC. It will start with an overview of IB, HSE, and their architectural features. Similarities and differences between these
technologies will be focused. Convergence between these two technologies (including the emerging RoCE interface) will be discussed. An overview of the OpenFabrics stack which encapsulates both IB and HSE in a unified manner will be
presented. IB and HSE hardware/software solutions and the market trends (including an overview of installations using these technologies) will be highlighted. Finally, sample performance numbers highlighting the performance these technologies can achieve in different environments will be presented.
A follow-up and advanced version of the tutorial (focusing on challenges in designing different kinds of HEC systems with these technologies) will be presented in the afternoon.
