Supercomputing Meets Ultra-low Latency Ethernet: Introducing Rockport, Advancing Innovation in HPC Networking
presented by Matthew Williams, CTO, Rockport Networks
Registration coming soon!
About the Event
Poor workload performance due to network congestion is a well-understood challenge for HPC. As datasets grow in volume, and compute and storage demands become more challenging, system architects search for high performance network fabrics that can predictably manage to pre-determined workload completion times.
The Rockport Switchless Network is a high-performance direct interconnect solution designed for the most demanding compute and data-intensive workloads. Deployed without centralized switches by distributing the network switching function to each device endpoint, the Rockport Switchless Network eliminates inherent performance bottlenecks of traditional network architectures — while reducing heat, power, rack space, and management complexity.
In this exclusive preview for the HPC Community, Matthew Williams, CTO of Rockport will provide an overview of Rockport’s innovative distributed switchless architecture, advances in congestion protection, resiliency, and operational simplicity, and show best practices for benchmarking to predict performance in production environments.
