Does InfiniBand Have a Future on Hadoop?

Aug 4, 2015 |

Hadoop was created to run on cheap commodity computers connected by slow Ethernet networks. But as Hadoop clusters get bigger and organizations press the upper limits of performance, they’re finding that specialized gear, such as solid state drives and InfiniBand networks, can pay dividends. InfiniBand was released to the world in 2000 as a faster networking protocol than TCP/IP, the primary protocol used in Ethernet networks. Thanks to its use Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA), InfiniBand allows a computer to Read more…
