Ultra-fast InfiniBand is a computer networking communications standard used in high-performance computing that is used to connect all servers and storage.
The InfiniBand architecture brings fabric consolidation to the data center Storage networking can concurrently run with clustering, communication and management fabrics over the same infrastructure, preserving the behavior of multiple fabrics.
InfiniBand is an open standard network interconnection technology with high bandwidth, low delay and high reliability. This technology is defined by IBTA (InfiniBand trade alliance). This technology is widely used in the field of supercomputer cluster. At the same time, with the rise of artificial intelligence, it is also the preferred network interconnection technology for GPU server.
High Speed Interconnection (HSI) has become the key to the development of high performance computers as the computing power of the Central Processing Unit (CPU) is increasing at a very fast pace. HSI is a new technology proposed to improve the performance of the Peripheral Component Interface (PCI).
After years of development, HSIs supporting High Performance Computing (HPC) are now mainly Gigabit Ethernet and InfiniBand, of which InfiniBand is the fastest growing HSI. InfiniBand is a high-performance, low-latency technology developed under the supervision of the InfiniBand Trade Association (IBTA).
The main reason tthat these are used is that InfiniBand is applied to the interconnection between servers in high-performance computing and reduces the CPU load.
Compared to an ethernet connection, Ethernet is more of a terminal device interconnection, there is no high demand for bandwidth while infiniBand is used to interconnect servers in high-performance computing.
They take into account not only interconnection but also how to reduce CPU load during high-speed network transmission.
