Harvard HPC Seminar Series
Theresa Kaltz, PhD, High Performance Technical Computing, FAS, Harvard
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.
