SC is the International Conference for
High Performance Computing, Networking,
Storage and Analysis

SCHEDULE: NOV 12-18, 2011

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.

S12: Designing High-End Computing Systems with InfiniBand and High-Speed Ethernet

SESSION: S12: Designing High-End Computing Systems with InfiniBand and High-Speed Ethernet

EVENT TYPE: Tutorial

TIME: 1:30PM - 5:00PM

Presenter(s):Dhabaleswar K. (DK) Panda, Hari Subramoni


As InfiniBand (IB) and High-speed Ethernet (HSE) technologies mature in their support for next generation high-end Computing (HEC) systems, many scientists, engineers and researchers are becoming interested in learning the details of these technologies. Large-scale deployments of these technologies are also bringing new challenges in terms of performance, scalability, portability, reliability and network congestion issues. This tutorial will provide details about the advanced features (hardware and software) of these emerging technologies and how the above challenges are being addressed. It will start with an overview of the current large-scale deployments of clusters and the associated challenges being faced. Advanced hardware and software features of both IB and HSE and their capabilities to alleviate these bottlenecks will be emphasized. Challenges in designing next generation systems with these advanced features will be focused. Details on the OpenFabrics software stack (including how to program with it), Subnet Management infrastructure and tools will be focused. Case studies and experiences in designing HPC clusters (with MPI-1 and MPI-2), PGAS designs, SDP, GPU computing, and cloud computing systems (including Hadoop, memcached and IB-WAN) will be presented together with the associated performance numbers and comparisons.
