EDR InfiniBand vs. 100Gb RDMA Capable Ethernet LA-UR-16-25357 Kari Erickson New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology Socorro, NM [email protected] Luke Kachelmeier University of New Mexico Albuquerque, NM [email protected] Faith Van Wig Missouri Institute of Science and Technology Rolla, MO [email protected] I. INTRODUCTION Used Infiniband gear is pretty cheap on ebay, due to rather large supply and low demand. When it comes down to the decision between upgrading to 10G Ethernet or Infiniband, with brand-new hardware: get Infiniband. 10G Ethernet is not cheap either, and chances are it does not increase scaling that much in cases where gigabit Ethernet does not ...

This next-generation 6U Switch supports up to 27 SDR/DDR/QDR/FDR/EDR InfiniBand ports with industry-leading, true cut-through latency. It supports 1/10/25/40/100Gb Ethernet, with 7 optional 40/100GbE optical interfaces to VITA 66 and 4 optional 40/100GbE optical interfaces to the front panel. Aug 06, 2009 · Then there’s Infiniband, offering four times the speed of already-speedy Ethernet, at lower cost. According to a May press release from the InfiniBand® Trade Association (IBTA), three independent trade analysts confirmed continued market growth of InfiniBand products in the HPC and data center server and storage markets.
