Chelsio Looks to Close Ethernet-InfiniBand Gap

January 24, 2013

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.

Chelsio T4 Adapters Deliver Industry Leading Performance for High Performance Computing

July 18, 2011

High Performance Computing cluster architectures are moving away from proprietary and expensive networking technologies towards Ethernet as the performance/latency of TCP/IP continues to lead the way.  InfiniBand, the once-dominant interconnect technology for HPC applications leveraging Message Passing Interface (MPI) and remote direct memory access (RDMA), has now been supplanted as the preferred networking protocol in these environments. <br /> Read more…

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…
