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

SESSION: M15: 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, Pavan Balaji, Sayantan Sur


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 and reliability. This tutorial will provide details about the advanced features of these emerging technologies. 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 and their capabilities to alleviate the bottlenecks will be emphasized. Challenges in designing next generation systems with these advanced features will be focused. Finally, case studies and experiences in designing HPC clusters (with MPI-1 and MPI-2), parallel file and storage systems, multi-tier datacenters, and cloud computing systems (including virtualization schemes) will be presented together with the associated performance numbers and comparisons.
