OpenFabrics Alliance Introduces 2013 User Day Workshop in Monterey, California
Feb 11, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
The OpenFabrics Alliance (OFA) announced the second OFA User Day Workshop in its ongoing effort to provide opportunities for users of OpenFabrics Software (OFS) to form a sustaining community, build a network among peers, share expertise and learn from the experiences of OFS users.
According to a release, the OFA User Day Workshop will be held at the Monterey Marriott in Monterey, California, April 18-19, and will include user forums that focus on understanding, implementing and administering OFS and the underlying hardware. The OFS user-based community drives the technical content of the workshop, and users discuss a broad range of topics, such as subnet management, debug and monitoring tools (including routing verification), RDMA over InfiniBand and Ethernet, and other topics vital to the OpenFabrics community.
Applications utilizing RDMA technology are changing the way IT managers and administrators build their networks. To push this revolution forward, users need a forum for common problem solving and the free exchange of ideas to improve what goes into their data center.
"Last year's OFA User Day Workshop helped to create a very promising user-grown OFS community," said Susan Coulter, HPC Network Administrator at Los Alamos National Laboratory. "During the workshop, the interactive community of users and adopters of OFS support each other to solve the challenges that arise in the administration of their high-speed fabrics."
The OpenFabrics Alliance (OFA) is a 501(c) (6) non-profit company that develops, tests, licenses and distributes the OpenFabrics Software (OFS) - multi-platform, high-performance, low-latency and energy-efficient open-source RDMA software.
