BoF: HPC Cluster Interconnect Topologies: Is Fat Tree the right Answer

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this presentation, we will begin the discussion with an overview of cluster configuration variations with FDR Infiniband, Gigabit Ethernet to 40 GigE or with proprietary interconnects like Quadrics and Myrinet and Aries. We will also discuss the cost increase of components that don’t give us more compute speed but are part of the infrastructure costs associated with a complete end–to-end system. In the end of our session we will brainstorm when buying a new cluster, do we need to have a full fat tree interconnect topology or if there is something more cost effective?
