Terascale Computing Research @ Intel
The computer industry is accelerating the transition to chip-multiprocessing with rapidly increasing core counts. This trend will lead us to the era of Terascale computing in the not too distant future where many-core processors with 100s of cores provide tera-flops of computing power and will handle terabytes of data. There are several difficult system architecture challenges that must be overcome to create a Terascale computing platform. This talk will give an overview of Terascale computing research at Intel Corporation and discuss the key research questions in different areas of platform architecture with a
specific focus on scalable I/O for Terascale platforms.
Prashant Chandra is a Principal Engineer in the Systems Technology Lab at Intel Corporation. He has been with Intel since April 2000 and has worked on network processor architecture and parallelizing compiler. His current focus is in the area of scalable I/O architectures for Terascale platforms. He has a Ph.D in Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University.
