Is Europe Leading the Energy Efficiency Race?

Tom Wilkie, Scientific Computing World

Europe is notorious for its high energy costs. In the first of three articles on energy efficiency in high-performance computing, Tom Wilkie from Scientific Computing World asks if that’s why so much of the initiative appears to be coming from Europe.

“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.”
