“We chose Mellanox’s end-to-end FDR InfiniBand interconnects to connect the system, specifically by using their Connect-IB adapters in a dual rail network, as well as utilize the NVIDA GPUDirect RDMA communication acceleration to significantly increase the systems parallel efficiency.”
This week Penguin Computing announced the new Arctica 3200xl open network switch based on the Broadcom StrataXGS Trident II chipset.
When some of the world’s top universities and researchers showcase their innovations that meet the challenges of Big Data and global team science at SC13, they use the nation’s fastest research and education network – Internet2’s 100 Gigabit network .
Today Mellanox announced record applications performance for its Connect-IB FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand adapters. Benchmarks performed on multiple applications, such as WIEN2k, a quantum mechanical simulation software, and WRF, a Weather Research and Forecasting simulation software, demonstrated higher performance of up to 200 percent with forty compute nodes compared to competition’s QDR 40Gb/s InfiniBand solutions.
