Ethernet Alliance Lays Out High-Speed Path to Supercomputing Success with SC12 Demo

The Ethernet Alliance, a global consortium dedicated to the continued success and advancement of Ethernet technologies today announced it is showcasing an integrated multi-vendor demo in booth 637 on the SC12 expo floor. Scheduled for November 12 – 15 in Salt Lake City, UT, SC12 is the industry’s leading international high-performance computing, networking, storage, and analysis conference. The live demonstration encompasses an array of technologies and highlights Ethernet’s ability to deliver the durable, high-speed performance required by supercomputing applications.

“Big Data, Hadoop processing, MPI, automated design applications, storage – all of these very intensive, high-performance computing applications need robust, reliable, low-latency connectivity,” said Chauncey Schwartz, marketing committee chair, Ethernet Alliance, and senior technical marketing manager, QLogic. “The Ethernet Alliance SC12 demo exemplifies Ethernet’s superior interoperability with the integration of multiple diverse Ethernet technologies such as 10GbE and 40GbE, converged Ethernet with FCoE and iSCSI, and 10GBASE-T into a single HPC environment. The demo allows us in a very tangible, real-world way to illustrate Ethernet’s flexibility, interoperability and capacity for sustained, optimum performance even in the most computing-intensive situations.”

The Ethernet Alliance SC12 demo is designed to simulate traffic volumes, patterns, and flows commonly found in HPC and data center environments. The network topology spans three layers, including 10GbE attached servers in the access layer that are linked to multiple 10GbE switches in the distribution layer aggregated by two 40GbE core switches. The equipment and technologies featured in the demo were provided by Ethernet Alliance member companies including Amphenol Corporation (NYSE: APH), Aquantia, Cisco Systems (NASDAQ: CSCO), Dell (NASDAQ: DELL), Emulex Corporation (NYSE: ELX), Hitachi, Ltd (TSE: 6501), Ixia (NASDAQ: XXIA), Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX), Spirent Communications (LSE: SPT), TE Connectivity (NYSE: TEL) and Volex (LSE: VLX).

“Ethernet is known throughout the industry for its emphasis on interoperability. It is uniquely able address a variety of demanding environments ranging from supercomputing to today’s converged data centers,” said John D’Ambrosia, chairman, Ethernet Alliance, and chief Ethernet evangelist, CTO office, Dell. “With its continued evolution and market-proven flexibility, reliability, and cost-effectiveness, Ethernet is ideally positioned to fuel the next generation of supercomputing applications and advancements.”
