International Supercomputing Conference 2008 - "First Experiences with 40Gb/s InfiniBand Clusters"
Abstract: Quad Data Rate (QDR) InfiniBand delivers a new level of performance that complements today\'s multi-core compute nodes. Appro has combined these technologies in the Appro Xtreme-X1 supercomputing clusters providing a reliable and scalable architecture that unites high performance capacity computing with superior fault-tolerant capability computing. We will discuss benchmarks and our experience in building the first Intel Cluster-Ready certified 40Gb/s InfiniBand cluster utilizing redundant Mellanox ConnectX IB 40Gb/s QDR running on Intel Xeon Quad-Core processors in a redundant and manageable framework. Representatives from Intel, Appro and Mellanox will be on hand for questions.
