Vendors collaborate to validate InfiniBand interoperability

QLogic has announced a collaboration with 40 HPC vendors to validate InfiniBand network interoperability with over 50 different vertical applications, middleware, storage systems, cables and optics necessary to configure an HPC cluster. QLogic and other industry leaders are collaborating to address the need for systematic certification of product interoperability and performance optimization to form pre-qualified HPC solutions. The results are published in the QLogic HPC Interoperability Guide and downloadable at its Web site.
“Today’s HPC environment is becoming increasingly complex; a typical HPC solution stack includes applications, server and storage hardware, interconnections, multi-layers of management software, and file systems,” said Jie Wu, research manager, technical computing, IDC. “Recognizing the challenges faced by end users, QLogic sees the pressing need for solutions that are complete, well supported, and tuned. By building an HPC ecosystem with key industry players on board, QLogic is taking a holistic approach to address some of the major issues facing the market such as interoperability and consistency of the technologies, performance optimization of the applications and support services.” Full Story


About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
