Thus, implementation of the highest-class InfiniBand architecture
will increase throughput by twelve times or more.
Components of the InfiniBand architecture
are scheduled to become commercially available later this year, while InfiniBand-enabled systems are expected in late 2001.
Products that pass testing gain inclusion in the IBTA Integrators' List which is designed to support data center managers, CIOs and other IT professionals with their planned deployments of InfiniBand architecture
The InfiniBand Architecture
spec creates three different performance classes of link, known as 1x, 4x, and 12x.
The Nitro reference design has been developed to accelerate the time-to-market of production worthy OEM InfiniBand Architecture
based blades using Mellanox's industry leading silicon," said Eyal Waldman, CEO at Mellanox.
This announcement represents another proof-point of the momentum for InfiniBand architecture
in the HPC arena.
With our first goal completed, the OpenIB Alliance can now focus on the upper level protocols and APIs to ensure the wide adoption of the Infiniband architecture
in data centers and clusters for high-performance, enterprise and grid computing," said Jim Ryan, marketing manager at Intel Corporation and chairman of the OpenIB Alliance.
Leading InfiniBand companies today announced the formation of the OpenIB Alliance, an industry association chartered to deliver a single open source Linux-based software stack for deploying InfiniBand architecture
in compliance with the InfiniBand Trade Association interconnect standard.
Nasdaq:NTAP), the leader in advanced networked storage solutions for today's data-intensive enterprise, today announced its participation in the OpenIB Alliance, an industry association chartered to deliver a single open source Linux(R) software stack for deployment of the InfiniBand architecture
The first cooperative ESAA "recipe" offering from Intel and InfiniCon, slated for June 2004 availability, will address the burgeoning HPC market opportunity that has emerged for standard, high-volume Intel-based servers and the high-bandwidth, low-latency InfiniBand architecture
Leveraging the power of InfiniBand architecture
, the InfiniCon fabric - comprised of high-performance, low latency switching systems and host channel adapters - provides a 10Gbps network to allow the clustered nodes to work in tandem.
The high bandwidth and low-latency attributes of the InfiniBand Architecture
are exceptionally suited to match the demands of high performance computing - making it possible to design highly efficient, low-cost clusters from standards based, commodity components.
