The requirements for ExaScale and Big Data I/O are driving research, architecturaldeliberation, technology selection and product evolution throughout HPC and Enterprise/Cloud/Web computing, networking and storage systems. Analysis of the Top500 interconnect families over the past decade reveals that it has been an era when standard commodity I/O technologies have come to dominate, almost completely. Speeds have gone from 1 Gigabit to over 50 Gigabits, latencies ahave decreased 10X to below a microsecond and software has evolved towards 1 software stack - OpenFabrics. Enterprise is now adopting these same capabilities at a rapid rate, From the perspective of the major suppliers of systems and machines to HPC, this panel will discuss the next generation of interconnects and system I/O architectures.
