SciNet’s Infiniband Upgrade on The HPC Rich Report

June 16, 2012 in blog, blog-general, in_the_news

Our CTO, Dr. Chris Loken, was on this week’s Rich Report HPC podcast with Gilad Shainer of Mellanox and the HPC Advisory Council describing our recent Infiniband upgrade and the improvements that means for our user community; the podcast was also featured on Inside HPC.

 Using Mellanox end-to-end InfiniBand solutions, SciNet has improved reliability and stability of their file systems, greatly improving the performance of parallel user jobs and user efficiency. SciNet is experiencing at least 15-20% increased performance out their upgraded cluster and expects to be high on the TOP500 list when the update is issued at ISC.
