Relation between Interconnection Technologies for Cluster Computing

Anita Pruthi


Cluster computers built from commodity processors are becoming the predominant super computer architecture because of their scalable performance and attractive price. Modern computing environments require low latency, high bandwidth and full time availability. This trend demands crash-safe operation, high level of safety, higher isolation and greater capacity to move data between processing nodes as well as between a processor node and I/O devices. To satisfy all the above-mentioned needs, various technologies have emerged in the era of cluster computing. In this paper, we have investigated various interconnection technologies used in cluster computing such as Giganet cLAN, InfiniBand, Myrinet, Gigabit Ethernet. Further a comparative study has been performed based on different criteria.
