Amazon EC2's newest networking capability, Elastic Fabric Adapter (EFA), provides low latency connectivity for highly parallel, tightly-coupled applications to achieve not just great performance, but also extremely quick turnaround thanks to the agility and extreme scalability of AWS. In this tech talk, we'll do a deep dive into OpenMPI and its specific support for Amazon EC2's EFA, and show you how to get the most out of your code, and architect your solution for performance.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand OpenMPI and it's relationship to EFA
  • Learn how to use AWS Parallel Cluster to launch HPC applications
  • Learn techniques for optimizing workload performance (straight-line or price/performance)

Who Should Attend?

Scientists and engineers using HPC for their work and the IT architects who support them


  • Dr. Linda Hedges, Principal Solutions Architect, AWS
