Comparing Lustre RDMA Performance over Ethernet vs. FDR InfiniBand

Jun 15, 2015 |

Two distinct solutions yielding nearly identical results – but with a significant difference in cost and management. These are the key findings of a recent study conducted by Chelsio Communications that compares the performance of Lustre RDMA (Remote Direct Memory Access) over Ethernet vs. FDR InfiniBand. Lustre is the popular, scalable, secure, high availability HPC Read more…

Chelsio Looks to Close Ethernet-InfiniBand Gap

Jan 24, 2013 |

<img style=”float: left;” src=”http://media2.hpcwire.com/hpcwire/Chelsio_logo_120x.jpg” alt=”” width=”93″ height=”92″ />This week Chelsio Communications unveiled its latest Ethernet adapter ASIC, which brings 40 gigabit speeds to its RDMA over TCP/IP (iWARP) portfolio. The fifth-generation silicon, dubbed Terminator T5, brings bandwidth and latency within spitting distance of FDR InfiniBand, and according to Chelsio, will actually outperform its IB competition on real-world HPC codes.
