Harvard HPC Seminar Series – open to all

To Infiniband and Beyond: High Speed Interconnects in Commodity HPC Clusters

Theresa Kaltz, PhD, High Performance Technical Computing, FAS, Harvard

1-2pm, Thursday December 3rd, 2009
Harvard University Science Center, Room 110,
1 Oxford Street, Cambridge MA

Abstract:

Due to the wide availability and low cost of high speed networking,
commodity clusters have become the de facto standard for building high
performance parallel computing systems. This talk will introduce the
leading technology for high speed interconnects called Infiniband and
compare its deployment and performance to Ethernet. In addition, some
emerging interconnect technologies and trends in cluster networking will be
discussed.
