Video: Slim Fly – A Cost Effective Low-Diameter Network Topology

torsten

“We introduce a high-performance cost-effective network topology called Slim Fly that approaches the theoretically optimal network diameter. Slim Fly is based on graphs that approximate the solution to the degree-diameter problem. We analyze Slim Fly and compare it to both traditional and state-of-the-art networks. Our analysis shows that Slim Fly has significant advantages over other topologies in latency, bandwidth, resiliency, cost, and power consumption.”

“Adaptive Routing has been added to the static routing capability available in previous switch families. InfiniBand supports moving traffic via multiple parallel paths. Adaptive routing dynamically and automatically re-routes traffic to alleviate congested ports. In networks where traffic patterns are more predictable, static routing has been shown to produce superior results. The InfiniScale IV architecture provides the best of both static and adaptive routing.”
