Increasing Infiniband Fabric Performance

This Thursday, April 19th, Hewlett-Packard and Mellanox will hold a live webinar exploring new advancements in increasing the performance and scalability of parallel programs over InfiniBand. These include Fabric Collectives Accelerator (FCA) and Mellanox Messaging Accelerations (MXM). In addition, the webinar will provide an overview of the parallel programming libraries that are using these accelerations, including the new ScalableSHMEM and ScalableUPC PGAS libraries that Mellanox has recently introduced to run over InfiniBand. Details and results derived from a collaboration between Mellanox and HP at looking into the performance and scalability of one-sided communications over InfiniBand will also be presented.

Register here in advance to attend the webinar.

The presenters will include Zarka Cvetanovic, PhD, HPC engineer at HP and Todd Wilde, Director of Technical Computing at Mellanox.
