ConnectX Series, Switch-IB Series

Not a smooth implementation, but ultimately overcame all challenges.

Infiniband is the future of back end computing platforms, that provide high speed I/O and network bandwidth. It provided high speed internal data transfer for cluster heartbeats as well as higher I/O throughputs for communications to storage. We were able to setup Infiniband switches and integrate our servers into the switch by the use of the ConnectX boards from each server. The UFM (Unified Fabric Manager) is a GUI tool, that enables to easily configure the different interface layers needed to connect storage, networks and other servers. We had some interoperability issues with Netapp Storage, and some RDS protocol issues for Oracle RAC cluster interconnect. However, these were resolved, once we got the right versions.
