Sub 3.5 microsecond UDP sockets latency, full FCoE offload, low-cost HPC storage on display
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 15 -- Chelsio Communications, Inc., the leading provider of 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) adapters, ASICs, and storage solutions, will be demonstrating the high performance capabilities of its Terminator 4 (T4), including full offload FCoE (Fibre Channel over Ethernet) and sub 3.5us UDP sockets latency, in booth #1361 at the Supercomputer Conference (SC10) this week in New Orleans, La. Chelsio will also be showing its Unified Storage Server and Unified Storage Router appliance in demonstrations in the Chelsio booth.
The T4, a highly integrated, highly virtualized 10Gb Ethernet controller built around a programmable protocol-processing engine, includes fourth generation TCP offload, third generation iSCSI offload, and second generation iWARP RDMA over Ethernet offload. The T4 now supports full FCoE and UDP offload as well. In its booth, Chelsio will be showing sub 3.5us latency for UDP sockets and sub 4.0us iWARP RDMA MPI latency. Chelsio will also be demonstrating high IOPs throughput of its Unified Storage Server (USS), software that enables high performance iSCSI SAN, NAS and RDMA storage solutions. Chelsio is also demonstrating the high availability capabilities of its Unified Storage Router (USR).
In addition, Chelsio is participating in iWARP interoperability and iSCSI and FCoE offload performance demonstrations in both the Ethernet Alliance booth (#4513) and interoperability as well as iWARP and NFS over RDMA performance demos in the Open Fabrics Alliance booth (#1161).
"Chelsio has a growing presence at SC'10, which mirrors the growing influence of 10Gb Ethernet as the engine of convergence for high performance computing clusters, storage and networks," said Kianoosh Naghshineh, president and CEO of Chelsio. "We are pleased to be able to demonstrate the performance capabilities of our T4, including low latency UDP."

In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
