NetEffect is addressing the needs of this market with a family of 10 Gbps iWARP Ethernet Channel Adapters that meet the low latency and high data throughput requirements of high performance cluster computing.

NetEffect’s full iWARP Ethernet implementation supports all the node-to-node interconnect performance enhancement and overhead reduction requirements including RDMA, TCP Offload, and OS Bypass

Terry Hulett- Vice President of Architecture and Silicon EngineeringTerry leads NetEffect’s innovation efforts, leveraging more than 23 years of semiconductor design experience. Prior to joining Banderacom and NetEffect, he held key positions at Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) and Motorola Semiconductor, leading several microprocessor development teams. At AMD, Terry led the development of over 15 chips and built AMD’s first high-volume card-based products. He joined Banderacom in 1999 where he successfully led the Company’s InfiniBand chip development program delivering the first product in 9 months. Terry also previously served as vice president of research and development for Austin-based Si Solutions, Inc. Terry received his BSEE at Oklahoma State University.

Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003

 For customers solving complex computational problems, Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 accelerates time-to-insight by providing a High-Performance Computing (HPC) platform that is simple to deploy, operate, and integrate with existing infrastructure and tools. Prescriptive setup procedures simplify network configuration, remote loading of nodes using Remote Installation Services, node configuration, and security setup.  The integrated Job Scheduler can be accessed via command-line interface, or through several API’s is provided for submitting and managing cluster workloads.  The job console allows you to manage jobs in much the same fashion that you queue and manage print jobs today.  Active Directory integration provides end-to-end user and security management while the Microsoft Management Console supports extensible snap-ins and integration with Microsoft Operations Manager.

Bill is the manager of Microsoft’s Federal High Performance Computing business, based in the Washington, DC area. Bill’s High Performance Computing background includes executive level management positions ranging from venture capital start-ups such as the SIMD massively parallel pioneer Wavetracer, to Floating Point Systems and Bolt Beranek and Newman (BBN), to work on the development team at Digital Equipment Corporation on the VAX 9000 Vector Processor, as well as managing the technology transfer program at the DARPA sponsored Center for High Performance Computing, Worcester Polytechnic Institute
