Linux RDMA & InfiniBand Panel - Roland Dreier, Pure Storage; Sean Hefty, Intel; Or Gerlitz, Mellanox; Jason Gunthorpe, Obsidian Research; Christoph Lameter (Moderator)
Linux has support for high speed interconnects which includes the offload technology necessary in order to do extremely fast communication between data in memory of the nodes in a cluster. The panel will discuss the current state of the Linux RDMA subsystem, use cases, current issues as well as future areas of development.
Love to relax and enjoy life.
