InfiniBand’s Data Center March
An IT industry analyst article published by IBTA blog.
Today’s enterprise data center is challenged with managing growing data, hosting denser computing clusters, and meeting increasing performance demands. As IT architects work to design efficient solutions for Big Data processing, web-scale applications, elastic clouds, and the virtualized hosting of mission-critical applications they are realizing that key infrastructure design “patterns” include scale-out compute and storage clusters, switched fabrics, and low-latency I/O.
This looks a lot like what the HPC community has been pioneering for years – leveraging scale-out compute and storage clusters with high-speed low-latency interconnects like InfiniBand.
