MPI-Tube: Learn MPI the Internet Way

Over the past year or two, I have been slowly creating a large set of Open MPI training material that I've used to present to my company's customers and partners. I have just recently received permission to release video presentations of all of my slides to the greater HPC community. Woo hoo!

Intermediate Beowulf Administration and Optimization

Could there be a more shameless plug?

Back by popular demand, the ARC at Georgetown University has for some strange reason decided to offer my Intermediate Beowulf Administration and Optimization course for a second time this March (18th-20th). The details and background are on the ARC HPC Training Page. Class size is limited, so if you have interest, sign up early. Course description is below. Excellent donuts.

Need a (High Performance) HUG

If you live in the New York City Metropolitan area, you may be interested in attending the first NYCA-HUG, which is short for the New York City Area HPC Users Group. We will be kicking off our first meeting on Thursday November 1 (Updated) Le Figaro Cafe in Greenwich Village at 7PM. You can find more information here.

And while you are clicking around, check out Today's HPC Clusters. Cluster content, White papers, Webinars, and more, all good stuff. And while you are at there, sign up for the newsletter and you get to read my weekly HPC rants. A free opinion, what a bargain.

InfiniBand for the Masses

From the "I'll take eight department"

The Linux cluster world is moving towards InfiniBand for many reasons: bandwidth, latency, message rate, N/2, price/performance, and other factors that affect performance and price. But usually it's focused on larger systems, many times greater 64 nodes up to multiple thousand nodes. At that same time the reasons for moving to InfiniBand are still valid for smaller clusters, particularly performance, but the economics are not. Basically InfiniBand is just too expensive for smaller systems and usually does not make sense from a price/performance perspective. But that has just changed...

Testing 1,2,3 ... The Linux Tech Show

On Wednesday, August 21, I will be the guest on the Linux Link Tech Show. The Linux Tech show is the oldest continually running Linux show on the planet! And, they happen to be in the somewhat soggy Lehigh Valley where I live as well (Eastern Pennsylvania). Each show is about an hour and a half long and you can catch it every Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. See the Linux Link Tech Show site for details.

The Linux Tech show was started in September 2003 by the founders of the Lehigh Valley Linux User Group. Their goal is to provide a weekly live webcasted radio style show about GNU/Linux and Technology. So forget about those summer re-runs, and catch some lively discussion about world domination though HPC Linux clusters.
