Accelerating High Performance and Super Computing with Ethernet
SESSION: Moving, Managing & Storing Data III
EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forums
TIME: 11:30AM - 12:00PM
SESSION CHAIR: William E. Allcock
Ethernet is poised to erode the InfiniBand market in the near future. High Performance Computing cluster architectures have started adopting low-latency, high-speed Ethernet due to its highly favorable performance, efficiency, and scalability. This is happening in the interconnect-fabric while InfinBand still has its hold with the cluster. Trends influencing this shift include: Ethernet bandwidths increased demand. The current 10 and 40G demand is making way for 100G in clusters and the need for 400G is anticipated in the future Shrinking gap between latency and pricing of Ethernet and InfiniBand Unmatched distance and reach flexibility of Ethernet Developments in big-fast Ethernet switches that are now aligned with compute and storage trends to create improved synergies Nadeem Zahid, at Extreme Networks, will share insights into how clients in oil & gas, seismology, bio-medical, meteorology and energy sectors can benefit from the enhanced deployment of high-speed and -performance Ethernet networks in HPC environments.
