Presentation

Abstract to be presented at Summit 2016 Novel forms of nonvolatile memory (NVM), such as phase change memory (PCM), promise low, DRAM-like latency and small granularity read/write access at high storage density. These characteristics make them highly desirable for high capacity memory applications such as in-memory...

Abstract to be presented at Summit 2016 Mr. Brown, the OpenPOWER Technical Steering Chair and team leaders will present the latest on workgroup accomplishments, initiatives and the roadmap ahead. Speaker Bio Jeffrey D. Brown, IBM Systems.  Jeff is an IBM Distinguished Engineer and member of the IBM Academy...

Abstract to be presented at Summit 2016 This session will cover development process, regression testing, the community and OpenPower Compliance testing for OpenPower firmware. A firmware image for an OpenPower machine consists of many individual components including Hostboot, OCC, skiboot, a linux kernel and the petitboot bootloader...

Abstract to be presented at Summit 2016 The Coherent Accelerator Processor Interface (CAPI), a unique feature of the POWER architecture, provides co-processors and I/O devices direct access to the CPU's coherent memory system. The tight coupling with the host memory allows for eliminating a vast part...

Abstract to be presented at Summit 2016 The IBM Zurich Research Laboratory is investigating hybrid computer systems that offload part of the processing to programmable near-memory accelerators that tightly integrate computation with main memory operation. Besides exploiting a data-centric concept to limit data transfers, this research...

Abstract to be presented at Summit 2016 Hardware Test eXecutive (HTX) and the eCMD API are two key pieces of IBM's system development stack. Our presentation will provide attendees an overview of how these two tools enable bring-up, characterization and validation of POWER systems. HTX is IBM's...

Abstract to be presented at Summit 2016 The types of using OpenPOWER server: Server - Just use servers individually - Small-scale; - Manage the server individually; - Only needs simple management functionalities like HW-control, OS-deployment, PowerKVm Cluster – Put multiple servers together to achieve a big compute task - Large-scale; - Manage the...

Abstract The OpenMP specification is a de-facto industry standard for parallel programming on modern hardware architecture for the last 15+ years.  In the last two revisions of the specification, new features have been added to provide functionality to offload code to a broad range of accelerators,...
