Session Details

Name: Interconnects & Topologies for HPC Systems – State of the Art & Future Trends
Time: Monday, June 17, 2013
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Room:   Hall 2
CCL - Congress Center Leipzig
Breaks:3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Coffee Break
Chair(s):   Frank Baetke, Hewlett-Packard
Abstract:   In the past years one could observe a significant consolidation of non-system vendors providing interconnect technologies and associated topological options. Only a few providers with proprietary interconnects are still around. The two talks in the session will provide a deeper insight into future interconnect standards and topologies and will also address the migration from electrical to optical interconnects at system level. The session will adjourn with the opportunity to ask a few questions to the two speakers.
