Industry Spotlight
Corporate Liaison Program and Computer Society Chapter of the IEEE Santa Clara Valley (SCV) Section host the Twelfth "Industry Spotlight" with Fred Douglis.

TITLE: FLEET -- Fast Lanes for Expedited Execution at 10 Terabits
SPEAKER: Fred Douglis, Chief Scientist, Perspecta Labs, Basking Ridge, NJ
DATE: Tuesday, May 25th 2021, 6pm PT (Pacific Timezone)
SPONSORS: IEEE SCV Section, IEEE Computer Society SCV Chapter; IEEE Industry Engagement

ABSTRACT: The DARPA FastNICs program targets orders of magnitude improvement in applications such as deep learning training by making radical improvements to network performance: while raw bandwidth has grown dramatically, the fundamental roadblock to application performance has been in delivering that data to the application. FLEET provides a primarily off-the-shelf solution with high-end servers and shared computational and storage resources connected via PCIe over a reconfigurable MEMS optical switch; it uses custom Optical NICs to allow arbitrary topologies that can be configured before or even during execution to take advantage of shared resources and to flow data between components. FLEET's software is derived from Stanford Legion, which we are modifying to use the FLEET hardware and to plan application execution for these dynamic network topologies.
