Constructing an Efficient Distributed GPU

Thursday, April 22, 2021

12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

About the Event:

Scott Taylor, will discuss his computationally efficient distributed GPU appliance utilizing GPU Direct RDMA and NVMe-oF in a PCI Express based network. To address computational efficiency a solution must address the issue of underutilized compute and storage elements, also known as stranded resources. GigaIO FabreX software and hardware are utilized to construct a solution for disseminating these stranded resources.

Speaker Bio:

Scott Taylor has an extensive background in high speed networking, accelerators and security from working at companies like Cray Research and Sun Microsystems. Leveraging this background, he created the FabreX software architecture supporting Redfish Composability Service, NVMe-oF, GPU Direct RDMA, accelerators, MPI and TCP/IP all with a single PCI-compliant interconnect.
