Links of the day 21 - 10 - 2014

Today's links 21/20/2014: all about #Linux #networking with a little bit of  #HPC distributed #storage

  • State of Linux network stack : what's new and interesting in the latest kernel release, especially the low-latency device polling
  • KVM Forum : all videos of this year KVM forum . Some interesting talk especially on the HPC front and an interesting quote from Vincent Jardin: " if you want to have high performance networking or NVF solution don't use virtualization use container"
  • RDMA and ARM : Mellanox bring its RoCE adapter to the moonshot project. Interesting to see what type of application would leverage such architecture combination: a lot of small processors with a fast fabric.  
  • IX : solution that isclose to achieve the holy grail of networking - Low latency with high throughput (line rate)
  • (Fast Forward) Storage and I/O : Distributed Application Object Storage (DAOS) by Intel for HPC solution. A lot of flash , burst buffer with Lustre for supercomputer. Very interesting approach to address the challenge of future exascale computing platform.
