ISC 2016 Recap

Adapters, Exascale, High Performance Computing (HPC), InfiniBand, Interconnect, Storage, , , , ,

Last week we participated at the International Supercomputing conference – ISC’16. In reality, the event started the weekend before, kicked off by the HP-CAST conference where Mellanox presented to the entire HP-CAST audience our newest smart interconnect solutions; solutions that enable the highest application performance and best cost-performance compute and storage infrastructures.

At ISC’16 we have made several important announcements:

The new TOP500 supercomputers list was also announced last Monday, introducing a new number one supercomputer in the world, built at the supercomputing center in Wuxi, China. The new world’s fastest supercomputer delivers 93 Petaflops (three times higher compared to the #2 system on the list), connecting nearly 41 thousands nodes and more than ten million CPU cores. The offloading architecture of the Mellanox interconnect solution is the key to providing world leading performance, scalability and efficiency, connecting the highest number of nodes and CPUs cores within a single supercomputer.

We have witnessed eco-system demand for smart interconnect solutions, that enable smart offloading, both network activity and data algorithms, as it is critical for delivering higher applications performance, efficiency and scalability.

For those who could not attend ISC, we have a video of the highlights you can view here:

And for those of you on the go, you can use your mobile phone to view the Mellanox 360 gallery of ConnectX-5 advantages:

See you at SC’16.
