The Biggest Shift in Supercomputing Since GPU Acceleration

If you followed what was underway at the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) this week, you will already know this shift is deep learning. Just two years ago, we were fitting this into the broader HPC picture from separate hardware and algorithmic points of view. Today, we are convinced...

FD.io: Breaking the Terabit Barrier!

 At launch, FD.io’s VPP technology could route/switch at half a Terabit per second at multimillion fib entry scales.  Close examination of the bottlenecks revealed that it was being limited by the ability of the PCI bus to deliver packets from the NIC to the CPU.  VPP had headroom to do more, but...
