Benefits of 10 Gigabit Ethernet in High Performance Computing and Storage Environment
The transition to 10 GbE is under way in storage and computing environments, and the ubiquity and reliability of Ethernet make it a desirable solution for delivering high performance. Leading scientific organizations such as LANL and CERN are just a few examples of organizations that are heavily dependent on the computing power of the world's most sophisticated supercomputers, which utilize 10 GbE networks. The availability of high performance 10 GbE routers and switches enables 10 GbE-based storage and computing systems to deliver high bandwidth, high throughput and low latency Ethernet solutions for the rigorous demands of high performance computing applications. This presentation will provide a thorough overview of the role of 10 GbE in high performance computing and storage architectures, including technical, design and cost benefit
