Next Generation Cluster Computing

The mission requirements of Sandia National Laboratories demands powerful but economic computing capabilities. Sandia has been working to address these needs by exploring advanced architectures for cluster computing. InfiniBand, a newly emerged commodity multi-vendor open-standard network interconnect, has proven to have the characteristics of a high-performance cluster interconnect, namely high bandwidth, low latency, low CPU overhead, and remote direct memory access RDMA).

Our current InfiniBand research focuses on large-scale Linux visualization clusters for the Red Storm system, capacity computing, and scalable system and parallel software development.
