Birds of a Feather:
Omni-Path User Group (OPUG) Meeting
Birds of a Feather
TimeWednesday, June 19th3:45pm - 4:45pm
DescriptionFollowing on from a successful BoF at ISC18, the proposed event will continue to provide a forum for users and other interested parties to exchange their experience and insights using Intel's Omni-Path Architecture (OPA) communication fabric. Indeed, OPA is now used as production fabric in a growing number of Tier-0 HPC sites (Marconi, MareNostrum, to name a few). However, Omni-Path remains a relatively "young" fabric and thus sharing performance results, issues and/or recommended future OPA developments is valuable to the growing community of OPA adopters. This Bof will contain an introduction, Intel OPA update, short panel presentations/user cases from experienced OPA users and group discussion. We plan to explore themes related to uses of OPA on containerised systems, performance improvements and comparison with more established fabrics.
