INTERCONNECTION

In a clustered environment, the hardware must meet or beat the requirements of the software. The interconnecting technology plays an important role in the overall HPC performance.

 

Typical choices for cluster networking today include:
•    1000BASE Gigabit Ethernet over copper or fiber
•    10G Ethernet with TOE (TCP Offloading Engines)
•    Scalable Coherent Interface (NumaConnect)
•    InfiniBand Architecture

 

Based on our experience, we advise our clients on the networking technology their cluster requires. We take into account the overall system architecture as well as the HPC applications to determine which technology is the best fit for your specific situation.
