Today's links 04/02/2015: Shared Memory API for MPI, #Openstack File Service, Dell Power FX converged hardware


  • Remote Memory Access Programming in MPI-3 : interesting proposal and method to bridge the gap between shared memory model and message passing with the de-facto standard of HPC communication library.
  • Openstack Manilla : Shared File Services for the Cloud and specifically for Openstack , interesting number : 65% of all storage sold is for file-based use cases (IDC 2012) [slides]
  • Power Fx : Dell PowerEdge FX architecture, combining Dell networking, servers, and storage into a 2U chassis. Interesting piece of technology even if the presenter is rather monotone.
