Bringing the Power of InfiniBand to Cloud Startups

Over at the Mellanox Blog, Eli Karpilovski writes that the company is working through incubators and accelerators to bring new evolving startup companies together with cloud vendors that are based on the company’s interconnect cloud solutions. These new companies can enjoy best performance with the added benefit of reduced cost, as they advance application development.

Performance

RDMA (Remote Direct Memory Access) is a critical element in building the most scalable and cost-effective cloud environments and to achieve the highest return-on-investment. For example, Microsoft Azure’s InfiniBand based cloud, as listed on the world’s top performance capable systems (TOP500), demonstrated 33% lower application cost compared to other clouds on the same list.

Don’t waste resources worried about bringing up dedicated cloud infrastructure. Instead keep your developers totally focused on developing applications that are strategic to your business. By choosing an InfiniBand based cloud from one of our partners, you can rest assured that you will have the most efficient, scalable, and cost effective cloud platform available.

Mellanox’s InfiniBand and RoCE (RDMA over Converged Ethernet) cloud solutions deliver world-leading Ethernet based interconnect density, compute and storage. Mellanox’s Virtual Protocol Interconnect (VPI) technology incorporates both InfiniBand and Ethernet into the same solution to provide interconnect flexibility for cloud providers.

Google Launches Hub Network to Boost Startups


 
Over at CNET, Richard Nieva writes that Google will be partnering with co-working spaces and startup hubs at various locations, starting in London and Tel Aviv. Sponsored by the Google for Entrepreneurs arm of the company, the hub network will provide young companies with access to office space, mentors, and other resources to help them grow.

Google will back these hubs “financially and technologically,” said John Lyman, head of partnerships at Google for Entrepreneurs (though he wouldn’t elaborate on the “financially” part, other than that it won’t take any equity from the tech hubs or the startups). Technologically, companies at these hubs will have more access to Google products, including cloud storage, a credit on Google App Engine, and increased access to the Google Maps API.

Video: SC13 Seeks Your Ground-Breaking Innovations in the Emerging Technologies Track

In this video, Torsten Hoefler from ETH Zurich describes the new SC13 Emerging Technologies Track.

The SC13 Emerging Technologies Track is a new element of the Technical Program at SC13. It is aimed at providing a showcase on the SC13 show floor for novel projects at a national or international scale. It is different from other aspects of the technical program, such as contributed presentations and posters, in that it will provide a forum for discussing large-scale, long-term efforts in high performance computing, networking, storage, and analysis, rather than a recent research result that such a project might have achieved. Emerging Technologies will provide space in a booth at an attractive central location of the SC13 show floor. The booth will facilitate displays, presentations, and spontaneous discussions among participants and visitors.

If you have ground-breaking technologies in the works, the SC13 conference would love to provide you an opportunity to showcase it to the world leaders in supercomputing. Read the Full Story and get your submissions in today!
