OFA Workshop Wrap-up, feedback and action items Hope you had a good time – how did we do? www.openfabrics.org 1 Jim Ryan, Chairman, OFA March 17, 2010
Feedback on the Workshop More technical content is needed –Per Steve, this will only happen if the technical community gets involved –Interesting suggestion to use the second half of the last day to do a BoF instead of SC10 Panels: –One point was they weren’t panels, for the most part, in that speakers didn’t interact. They just offered thoughts on questions –At the same time, panelists couldn’t be open in their remarks, in some cases, because they were competitors in addressing the subject, e.g., Exascale 2 www.openfabrics.org
Feedback on the Workshop (cont’d) Provide lanyards for name tags Make the names on the tags larger Improve the internet service Move to a Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday format Possibility of a move to Monterey Not enough young people – look into some sort of student internships. Possibly approach DK for ideas or direct participation on the part of some of his grad students 3 www.openfabrics.org
Feedback on OFA Interesting thoughts from Carl on promoting IBA- based storage. I’d like to understand how to support this Solved the interop/logo program, at least for now We adopted the SWOT results and agreed to the next stage of analysis Investigate some sort of “Technology Advisory Board”, akin to what the Linux Foundation and some other groups have. Ask Lloyd Dickman to provide some initial thoughts. Purpose: investigate competing and future technology 4 www.openfabrics.org
Feedback on ExaScale My take-away was that it will require profound changes to virtually all components What surprised me was there may be challenges to RDMA in the “PetaScale era”, per Lloyd’s comments 5 www.openfabrics.org
Feedback on New/Competing Technologies RoCEE is here Suggest a survey should be completed. Candidates include: –AMQP –Eucalyptus –DSS 6 www.openfabrics.org
