Boosting HPC Application Performance with Elastic Fabric Adapter (EFA) – AWS Online Tech Talks
Engineers, researchers, and HPC system owners are migrating their most critical HPC applications to AWS to innovate beyond the limitations of on-premises HPC infrastructure. When migrating tightly coupled applications, high levels of inter-node communication are critical to application performance. In this tech talk, learn how tightly coupled applications can take advantage of Elastic Fabric Adapter (EFA) for boosting application performance. We’ll demonstrate the process of making EFA available for your HPC applications and how to use EFA at scale in HPC clusters with AWS ParallelCluster.
– Describe what Elastic Fabric Adapter (EFA) is and how it integrates with an HPC application
– Understand the process of making EFA available on an EC2 instance
– Learn how to automate making EFA available on EC2 instances with AWS ParallelCluster
