2019 Tapia Conference

High Speed Networking (HSN): Moving Data Fast, Easily, and Securely

Friday, September 20, 2019 — 10:40AM - 11:40AM


This workshop will focus on the high-speed networks of High Performance Computing Systems - the nervous system that provides access to and unleashes the power of the supercomputer to file systems and computation. After a brief introduction to HPC networking, you will learn how HPC networking is the same and yet very different from networking in the wild. You will learn about advanced high speed networking technologies and fabric, including high speed Ethernet, InfiniBand and the IntelĀ® Omni-Path Architecture. Finally, you will have an opportunity to learn about how these technologies are deployed at Los Alamos National Laboratory in support of its world-class high performance computing platforms, which are used to research and solve national grand-challenge scientific problems.

Attendees will require a Wi-FI capable laptop for the hands-on portion of the workshop. Please bring one with you for the session.

Session limited to the first 30 attendees.

Workshop Presenters:
Jesse Martinez, HPC Network Administrator, Los Alamos National Laboratory
Carolyn Connor, R&D Manager, Los Alamos National Laboratory
David Carlson, System Administrator, Los Alamos National Laboratory
