Mellanox participates at the 2014 IEEE International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS). IPDPS  is an international forum for engineers and scientists from around the world to present their latest research findings in all aspects of parallel computation.


The 28th IEEE-IPDPS is being held in Phoenix at the Arizona Grand Resort.  Exascale levels of computing pose many system and application-level computational  challenges.  Recent technology improvements significantly improve InfiniBand's scalability, performance, and ease of use.



Richard Graham, Senior Solutions Architect at Mellanox, gives a presentation and discusses communication middleware architecture issues, as they relate to extreme-scale computing.  Topics covered included the latest advancements with InfiniBand, such as the latest architecture of Connect-IB, Dynamically Connected Transport, CoreDirect architecture, On-Demand Paging and solutions that Mellanox is providing to address the challenges of extreme scale computing.


After the session, Richard Graham also participated in a private panel with over fifty PhD students of various technical disciplines, to discuss the industry as a whole and what they might expect as they make the transition from academia as the next generation industry thought leaders.
