Implementation Details for Creating a PCI Express-Based Fabric
SESSION: Hardware & Architecture I
EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forums
TIME: 10:30AM - 12:00PM
SESSION CHAIR: Paul Domagala
There has been significant interest over the past year about the potential for a high speed fabric created with PCI Express. The clear advantages of lower cost, power, and latency coupled with high performance and the ability to use the vast, existing infrastructure - make this a compelling solution. The primary features of such a fabric are high speed clustering capability, and the ability to share common storage and communication subsystems among a potentially large number of processing elements. A key requirement for such a solution is to offer these features, but to do so with existing hardware devices and their software and firmware drivers. This presentation will provide the details of how this will be accomplished through DMA, RDMA, and Shared I/O, and integrate into existing HPC data centers. The performance of the resulting fabric will be quantified.
