Abstract:   InfiniBand (IB) and High-speed Ethernet (HSE) technologies are generating a lot of excitement towards building next generation High-End Computing (HEC) systems including clusters, datacenters, file systems, storage and cloud computing environments. This tutorial will provide an overview of these emerging technologies, their offered features, their current market standing, and their suitability for prime-time HEC. It will start with a brief overview of IB, HSE, and their architectural features. An overview of the emerging OpenFabrics stack which encapsulates both IB and HSE in a unified manner will be presented. IB and HSE hardware/software solutions and the market trends will be highlighted. Finally, sample performance numbers highlighting the performance these technologies can achieve in different environments will be presented.
