Evolved Networking – the AI Challenge
Watch Webex On-Demand
Unlike traditional front-end networks, high-performance computing clusters (HPCC), artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML) require deterministic high bandwidth connections between many processing nodes. Historically these have been built with dedicated and proprietary technologies like InfiniBand (IB).
These networks have unique requirements and use unique interconnect technologies which have forced data centers to deploy specialized tools and networks. In this webinar, we’ll cover some of the unique characteristics of HPCC, ML, and AI networks and what that means to the network topologies and technologies used to connect these machines. We’ll cover some of the advantages and challenges of using fully generic ethernet for an interconnect and propose some alternative solutions. We will show how Cisco can provide customers with unique flexibility as their requirements evolve.
In this session, we’ll discuss the following:
