Remote Direct Memory Access Networking for HPC: Comparative Review of 10GbE iWARP and InfiniBand

February 24, 2010

Cluster computing systems have caused disruptive changes in the HPC market. One consequence of the range of requirements for cluster networking is that the leading interconnects in HPC are Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), which is based on Ethernet networking standard, and InfiniBand, delivering upwards of 10X performance vs. GbE. Both show significant deployment in HPC. Read more…
