Ahead of the Low-Latency Summit, Here’s Some Background Reading

Subscribe to our newsletter

Unless you’ve been living on Mars (and sadly it looks like a Russian space probe will not be visiting soon), then you’ll know that next Thursday I am hosting the Low-Latency Summit in New York City. If you are in fact a Mars resident, then you’ve just a few days to register online (it closes EOB on Tuesday). In the meantime, I’ve linked to a few useful background items that should help to make your day more productive …

David Kelly, CTO for the Enterprise Solutions division at Thomson Reuters, will present the opening keynote. The company’s key low-latency offering is its Elektron managed infrastructure.

Dominick Paniscotti, who is a fairly new principal technologist at Nasdaq OMX, will be delivering the pre-lunch keynote. Among other things, he’ll cover the exchange’s efforts to create an ecosphere of infrastructure tools vendors.  More here.

Some morning highlights:

Solarflare Communications will be represented by David Riddoch on the 9.30am “Low-Latency Connectivity – From Start to Finish” panel. His colleague Bruce Tolley recently answered some questions about the company’s OpenOnload technology. See here.

And on the 11am “Low-Latency Computing – Milliseconds and Microseconds, Now Even Nanoseconds” panel, there will be mention of Hardcore Computer’s liquid-cooled over-clocked servers (more here) and Kove’s DRAM appliance for very fast access to data (covered here). Oh, and a bit about Inter-Thread Communication, as detailed here.

Some afternoon highlights:

There’s an entire session devoted to FPGAs (and similar), which should be a great way to catch up with the state of the art. Also keep updated via the continuous coverage of hardware acceleration on this site.

Latency in Latin America is also the subject of a panel. It’s all happening down South, and it’s closer than one might think.

Oh, and finally, just for some light relief, I created a musical ‘mixtape’ for the event, from mostly Austin and NYC acts. You can preview the songs on iTunes, and also buy them if you so desire. The entire mixtape costs about 10 bucks, and it’s really rather good.
