First Experience with InfiniBand FDR

SESSION: First Experience with InfiniBand FDR

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Gilad Shainer, Michael Kagan, Eyal Gutkind


The new InfiniBand roadmap announced by the IBTA unveiled new speeds for bandwidth that expands the previously-defined InfiniBand speeds to include FDR and EDR. InfiniBand FDR (14Gb/s data rate per lane) in conjunction with PCIe Gen3 increases the InfiniBand throughput by 80% when compared to InfiniBand QDR and PCIe Gen2 platforms. The new InfiniBand FDR technology incorporate a new link level encoding scheme and new reliability mechanisms for increasing the scalability and efficiency in Petascale computing and beyond. The session will provide a detailed review on the new InfiniBand speeds and the new feature set that InfiniBand FDR provides. The session will also include, for the first time, a report on the first real experience with InfiniBand FDR and the impact of the new features on leading applications and workloads. The session will also drive a discussion on new capabilities that should be added to future generations beyond InfiniBand FDR.
