SDSC Technology Forum Breakfast: High Performance Data Center Network for Deep Learning and HPC Workloads, GigaIO
October 25, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am
Join us for a hot cup of coffee and a little breakfast with Alan Benjamin, President and CEO of GigaIO Networks shares how high-performance computing users today are facing a massive increase in the amount of data that is being collected, analyzed and stored. This new reality is driving a splintering of computing into CPUs, GPUs, application specific FPGAs and other specific compute nodes as general-purpose CPUs can no longer handle the load. This splintering is creating new cluster architectures that must enable greater flexibility, utilization and scale. Today’s networks were never designed to handle this amount of information or resource types at the latency and bandwidth necessary to achieve the desired outcomes.
GigaIO has developed a hyper performance network for software-defined infrastructure (SDI) that enables data centers to easily scale their systems, creating a flexible infrastructure that accelerates system performance.
With assistance from the SDSC Industrial Partner Program users are testing GigaIO’s composable network and are easily adding GPUs and storage to the environment and can determine the best ratio of CPU/GPU/storage for their application.
