Advanced IBEx G40 system provides maximum interconnect capacity and enables global compute and data services to be extended over thousands of miles
NEW ORLEANS, Nov. 17 -- Bay Microsystems, Inc., an innovative leader and expert in the design and development of high-performance communications solutions, will be showcasing its new IBEx family of InfiniBand range extension appliances at SC10 in New Orleans, La. Bay's next-generation IBEx G40 platform extends native InfiniBand at 40 Gbps data rates to any point on the globe.
The IBEx G40 utilizes Bay Microsystems' proprietary packet and transport-processing technology along with enhanced credit buffering and end-to-end flow control to reliably extend InfiniBand over campus, metro, and wide-area networks spanning from just a few miles to thousands of miles. This allows the IBEx G40 platform to provide InfiniBand range extension over a variety of network infrastructures enabling IT managers to maintain protocol continuity beyond a single site to virtually anywhere around the globe without the need to modify existing applications or the local InfiniBand network.
The IBEx G40 provides flexible connectivity options delivering line rate 4X/8X InfiniBand QDR (up to 40 Gbps) performance over standard optical transport and packet-switched networks. This allows the IBEx G40 to seamlessly transport native InfiniBand over most wide-area network technologies including 40G Ethernet, IPv4/IPv6, SONET/SDH OC-768, ITU-T G.709 OTU3, and dark fiber. In addition to InfiniBand, the IBEx also supports encapsulation of a single 10G Ethernet link over the same wide area network connection allowing management and other network traffic to transparently pass without the need for additional wide area network services between sites.
The IBEx G40 is designed to work with a broad range of applications allowing InfiniBand compute and storage resources to be shared between datacenters. This includes:
"Bay pioneered InfiniBand long range extension solutions with the introduction of our ABEx 2020 4X InfiniBand SDR platform in 2006. Since that time, our solutions have been deployed around the globe reliably transmitting terabytes of traffic a day," said Charles Gershman, president and CEO at Bay Microsystems. "The IBEx G40 builds on Bay's global extension legacy by enabling 4X/8X QDR (40Gbps) InfiniBand applications and services to be extended between datacenters."
The company welcomes all SC10 visitors to join us at the InfiniBand Trade Association's Booth #1161, November 15-18, 2010, at the Ernest N. Morial New Orleans Convention Center to see the IBEx G40 product and to learn more about Bay's global InfiniBand extension solutions.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
