In-Network Computing and Next Generation HDR 200G InfiniBand
UThree #HPC practitioners stand at the dawn of the fourth industrial revolution. What do they call “ #BigData”? The humorous answer is of course, just “Data,” but the reality is that with the exponential growth of data that needs to be analyzed and the data resulting from ever-more complex workflows, the need for data movement has never been more challenging and critical to the worlds of High Performance Computing (HPC) and machine learning. @Mellanox Technologies, the leading global supplier of end-to-end @InfiniBand interconnect solutions and services for servers, storage, and #hyperconvergedinfrastructure, is once again moving the bar forward with the introduction of and end-to-end HDR 200G InfiniBand product portfolio. When Fast Isn’t Fast Enough In an age of digital transformation and big data analytics, the need for HPC and deep learning platforms to move and analyze data both in real-time and at faster speeds is ever increasing. Machine learning enables enterprises to leverage the vast amounts of data being generated today to make faster and more accurate decisions. Whether for brain mapping or for homeland security, the most demanding supercomputers and data center applications need to produce astounding achievements, often in real time! Until relatively recently, state-of-the-art applications analyzing automotive construction or weather simulations enjoyed the data performance and throughput speeds offered by 100G interconnect. Today’s HPC, machine learning, storage and hyperscale now require both faster interconnect solutions and more intelligent networks to analyze data and run complex simulations with greater speed and efficiency. With the expected volume of network data availability doubling by the end of 2019, it only makes sense to prepare for the eventuality of demand for HDR 200G interconnectivity capabilities.
