Meet Rockport at SC21: In person or virtually


SC21, the premier event for the HPC community, is fast approaching and whether you are attending in person, or online, Rockport has you covered.  

On the heels of the launch of the Rockport Switchless Network, here are the different ways you can interact with the Rockport team to learn more about the latest innovation in high performance networking.   


Hear CTO Matthew Williams Speak  

Don’t miss Rockport CTO Matthew Williams presents in the Exhibitor Forum (time and date to be announced): 

Advanced congestion control for addressing network performance bottlenecks using a next-generation interconnect

The interconnect is one of the most critical components in large-scale computing systems, and its impact on the performance of parallel applications increases with the system size. It is crucial for facilitating high performance IO that can keep up with the demands of HPC applications: latency, bandwidth, topology routers, protocols, and must be designed and implemented efficiently to realize the potential of HPC clusters. However, previous generation switch-intensive networks are inherently congestive and directly contribute to poor workload performance.

This talk will focus on a next-generation interconnect with performance enhancements made possible through an innovative distributed switchless architecture that delivers advances in multiple queue pairs, deadlock-free routing and intelligent applications of ultra-high priority QoS. Benchmarks confirm that applications running on a switchless network are less affected by congestion compared to previous generation networks. Join Rockport to hear about their, advances in congestion protection, resiliency, and operational simplicity, and show best practices for benchmarking to predict performance in production environments.
