As Chairman of the OpenFabrics Alliance, I’m excited about our upcoming workshop. We just announced that it will be held in Monterey, California, on April 4-8, 2016. The themes under consideration by our Technical Program Committee cover an exciting array of technology options and issues facing data center managers as they look to support the evolving needs of their users. The workshop will benefit anyone who develops or deploys OpenFabrics Software as well as assist data center managers and administrators with solving challenges in keeping their fabrics at their highest performance.
The Workshop is a collaboration, not only between the speaker and the attendees during the sessions but also between you and the organizers. We’re starting to collect input to help us develop a strong program. Be on the lookout for an upcoming Call for Sessions which will be your opportunity to offer your knowledge and insights to the OpenFabrics Alliance community and we’ll post more information on the themes and introduce you to the members of our Technical Program committee in future blogs. In the meantime, save the date and plan to join us in Monterey.
Jim Ryan, Chair, OFA
