DescriptionMellanox continues our leadership as the best interconnect worldwide for HPC. InfiniBand is leading around 55% of the HPC systems listed on the June 2019 TOP500 supercomputers list, including the top three and accelerates the four of the top five most powerful systems on the list, including the TACC Frontera system, the highest ranked HDR 200Gb/s InfiniBand connected supercomputer.
Mellanox has demonstrated exceptional performance and application scalability with adaptive routing, MPI Allreduce latency and higher performance for AI by integrating SHARP capabilities into machine learning frameworks. We will also cover the advancements with InfiniBand HDR such as SHIELD, an autonomous self-healing technology that can instantly re-route data paths from intelligent switches.
By providing the best-in-class network computing, native hardware-based offloads and acceleration engines we will explore the next generation capabilities of these smart-interconnect devices as we prepare to approach the next milestone to exascale computing and extreme distributed machine learning.
