A Word from the Board
The Board is continuing its work to update the mission and bylaws by which the OpenFabrics Alliance (OFA) is run. This effort is informed and supported by emerging partnerships with various organizations within the open source, high performance, computing ecosystem. Along with these changes we hope to increase our membership, thereby increasing the impact and contributions the OFA can bring to the table.
As the end of my 2-year term as Board Chair approaches, I am hopeful that these new collaborations and our current programs will serve to move the OFA forward, allowing it to thrive along with the wider community.
Susan Coulter - OFA Board Chair
A Word from Interoperability Working Group:
Our Spring - 2018 Debug Event and 1st test event with OS Pre-release Distro Testing (SLES 15RC1) concluded. We are reviewing IWG member surveys to analyze current Interop feedback and future directions. If you are IWG member and would like influence future direction then please join our IWG meetings. OFIWG meeting information can be found here<https://openfabrics.org/index.php/ofa-calendar.html?acm=4958_75>.
For our next IWG Test Event members requested early Debug event for high value driver debug, So we are planning for minimum of OFED-4.17RC candidate testing in Aug/Sept 2018 instead of Logo event. We will be discussing goals and content list in June OFA-IWG Bi-weekly meetings.
RECAP: Collaboration at the Core of OFA Workshop 2018
The 14th Annual OpenFabrics Alliance (OFA) Workshop<https://openfabrics.org/index.php/about-the-2018-ofa-workshop.html?acm=4958_75>, held in scenic Boulder, Colorado, recently concluded its week-long, community-wide collaboration and dialogue on OpenFabrics. As the premier means of fostering lively discussions among those who develop fabrics, deploy fabrics, and create applications that rely on fabrics, the Workshop is the ideal venue for the OpenFabrics community and networking industry at large to identify and address the wide variety of emerging industry requirements and challenges that remain.

OFA, SNIA Partnership to Advance Remote Persistent Memory Gains Momentum
As announced <https://www.snia.org/news_events/newsroom/media-alert-and-openfabrics-alliance-announce-collaboration> earlier this year, the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA)<https://www.snia.org/> and the OFA have formed an alliance to collaborate on activities that advance remote access to persistent memory and the adoption of remote persistent memory as a mainstream technology. Remote access is important because modern applications span multiple systems, and this collaboration will bring the benefit of persistent memory to these applications.
The partnership was initiated and further defined at OFA Workshop 2018 through the activities of the Remote Persistent Memory Think Tank - the takeaways from the Think Tank can be viewed here<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmvVIdBgZQY&feature=youtu.be>. Don't miss your opportunity to contribute to the ongoing conversation on remote persistent memory by joining the mailing list<http://lists.openfabrics.org/mailman/listinfo/ofa_remotepm>.
