OFA Workshop 2018 to Open with Keynote from Intel’s Bill Magro; Workshop Abstracts and Agenda Now Available
The OpenFabrics Alliance (OFA) Workshop 2018 is right around the corner and we are excited to announce that Bill Magro of Intel Corporation will kick off the event with a keynote speech, “Software Foundation for High-Performance Fabrics in the Cloud.”
Mr. Magro is an Intel Fellow and Chief Technologist in HPC. In his keynote, Mr. Magro will discuss the growing needs associated with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and High Performance Data Analytics workloads in the cloud. These workloads are being fed by a deluge of data emanating from the Internet-connected population of people and things. While autonomous driving will deliver even more data to the cloud, High-Performance computing use is growing in the cloud. More and more cloud workloads now demand high performance from their fabrics, and these workloads are also imposing new requirements beyond those driven by traditional situation and modeling.
This talk will highlight the broadening role of OpenFabrics, in general, and the Open Fabrics Interface, in particular, to rise to the challenge of meeting the emerging requirements and become the software foundation for high-performance cloud fabrics.
The OFA is also excited to announce that it has published the list of session abstracts and agenda for the 2018 Workshop. The workshop program will include a collection of technical sessions covering a variety of critical networking topics, which range from current deployments of RDMA to new and advanced network technologies. This adds to the many new networking and collaborative opportunities available at the 2018 Workshop (details here).
