Infiniband Fat Trees

Overview Infiniband is primarily used in High Performance Computing (HPC) and provides a very fast network interconnect with an incredibly small latency. The Infiniband Iterface cards also implement Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) which allows the cards to place data directly into the memory of the end node so that no Kernel intervention is required. …

HPC Re-Engineering

Overview We have been tasked with proposing how we would re-engineer an aging SGI High Performance Computing platform. The platform is a 35 Node cluster running Red Hat 6.7 on each node with a Lustre file system mount and a /home file system presented via NFS from a Hierarchical Storage Node (over an FDR Infiniband …
