InfiniBand: Increases in Speed, Usage, Competition

by Addison Snell
for Intersect360 Research (originally published under the Tabor Research name)
March 2009

Ten years removed from its introduction, InfiniBand has become the most frequently selected system interconnect for HPC. In addition, InfiniBand is increasingly implemented for LANs and storage in HPC environments, and adoption is also growing in applications beyond HPC. After a wave of consolidation, Mellanox became the chief provider of InfiniBand silicon. As 40 Gb/sec switches came to the market, QLogic expanded into that part of the value chain as well, creating a second source for InfiniBand chips. With InfiniBand penetration still on the rise, the market is robust enough to support the added competition.
