Amazon Web Services 1: High Performance Scaling with Elastic Fabric Adapter
DescriptionElastic Fabric Adapter (EFA) is a network interface for Amazon EC2 instances that enables customers to run applications requiring high levels of inter-node communications at scale on AWS. At the core of EFA is the Scalable Reliable Datagram (SRD), a transport protocol that incorporates AWS' experience operating extreme workloads at cloud scale, including relaxing in-order packet delivery to actually use complex networks as an advantage. In this session, learn how EFA leverages a message-routing strategy that traces multiple best paths through AWS’ global network of servers at up to 100 Gbps, to enable application scaling. The speaker is Chethan Rao, AWS Senior Product Manager, HPC. He will also host a live video chat in the AWS video booth on Thursday, November 17th from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm EST.
