    Three Drivers For Faster Connectivity

    If your company needs software-defined architectures, more powerful CPUs and faster storage,read this to learn the three reasons hyperscale data centers are making decisions to adopt faster networks.

    Mellanox Ethernet Solutions Selected to Accelerate Baidu's Machine Learning Platforms
    Mellanox announced that pectrum™ Ethernet switches and ConnectX®-4 100Gb/s Ethernet adapters have been selected by Baidu, the leading Chinese language Internet search provider, for Baidu’s Machine Learning platforms. Learn more about their need for higher data speed and how Baidu was able to demonstrate 200 percent improvement in machine learning training times, resulting in faster decision making.

    [Solution Brief] Virtual High Performance Computing
    In the past, many would say that you simply can’t virtualize high-performance computing workloads. They require dedicated sets of resources, the workloads themselves are very heavy, and a lot of architectures never took virtualization into consideration..

    If you’re in the HPC world and are still skeptical about creating a vHPC cluster, consider this solution brief to explain what it means to run compute-intensive code on a modern hypervisor.

    What Does Hyperconverged Mean to Storage?
    In this live SNIA-ESF webcast, experts Greg Schulz and John Kim will move beyond the hype to discuss what these approaches mean for a hyperconverged storage environment and how you can know that you're asking the right questions in order to get the right answers.

    Everything You Wanted To Know about Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask: Buffering
    Buffers, queues, and caches, oh my! In this live webinar hosted by SNIA ESF, panelists from Cisco, Dell EMC, Intel, NetApp and Mellanox will be demystifying buffers, caches, and queue- all important aspects of data center storage. A few of the questions this session will answer are:

    • What are buffers, caches, and queues, and why you should care about the differences?
    • What’s the difference between a read cache and a write cache?
    • What happens when things go wrong?

    These are just some of the topics to dive into and you can be sure that you’ll get insight into this very important, and yet often overlooked, part of storage design.
