Mellanox ConnectX-4 EDR 100Gb/s technology was introduced in November at the SC'14 conference in New Orleans, LA. ConnectX-4 EDR 100Gb/s with CAPI support tightly integrates with the POWER CPU at the local bus level and provides faster access between the POWER CPU and the network device. We will discuss the latest interconnect advancements that maximize application performance and scalability on OpenPOWER architecture, including enhanced flexible connectivity with the latest Mellanox ConnectX-3 Pro Programmable Network Adapter. The new programmable adapter provides maximum flexibility for users to bring their own customized applications such as IPSEC encryption, enhanced flow steering and Network Address Translation (NAT), data inspection, data compression and others.
The next major advancement of GPUDirect™ technology is here. GPUDirect RDMA provides direct GPU-GPU communications across the network resulting in a significant reduction in communication latency between remote GPUs and completely bypassing the CPU. This webinar will cover the latest schedule for GPUDirect RDMA, scaling and optimization techniques for maximizing application performance using MVAPICH2, and the latest advancements of CUDA.
