High Performance Computing with Altitude: SC’16 Begins Tomorrow!

As readers may know, VMware has had a presence in the EMC booth for the last several years at Supercomputing, the HPC community’s largest annual ACM/IEEE┬áconference and exhibition. With the fusion of Dell and EMC into DellEMC and with VMware now under the Dell Technologies umbrella, I am very pleased that we will have two […]

Paravirtual RDMA for Low Latency and Flexibility

The Office of the CTO has been exploring how to best enable application access to RDMA for those applications requiring the ultimate in high bandwidth, low-latency communication, which includes many HPC MPI applications as well as many scale-out databases and BigData approaches. Passthrough mode is the most straightforward way to enable guest-level RDMA. With passthrough […]

Summer of RDMA

Those involved in HPC understand the need for low latency communication for many parallel distributed applications and for those applications whose storage requirements generate lots of small-message traffic. But it would be a mistake to assume low latency is an HPC-only issue. Why? Well, for two reasons. First, because as enterprise software architectures become more […]

Our Joint VMware / AMAX HPC Collaboration

I am excited we have now started our joint HPC exploration with our partner, AMAX. Based on an initial meeting on the show floor at VMworld in San Francisco last year, we decided to work together to examine several aspects of virtualized HPC of mutual interest. Areas where we see converging requirements between HPC and […]

OpenFabrics Workshop 2011

I attended the OpenFabrics Workshop in Monterey earlier this week and delivered a talk on converging requirements between HPC, Enterprise, and Cloud with an emphasis on interconnect-specific issues, specifically RDMA. With its lower latencies and lower CPU utilization along with the potential for higher bandwidths, RDMA is of increasing interest for addressing the requirements of […]
