InfiniBand Fabric Suite (IFS) 7.0
InfiniBand Fabric Suite (IFS) 7.0. is designed to enable users to optimize fabric performance and communications efficiency, while minimizing management costs, for HPC clusters of any size. A key feature is integration of vFabric QoS (Quality of Service) with workflow schedulers from Adaptive Computing and Platform Computing into IFS 7.0, making it possible for HPC users to set a priority and QoS level as the message passing interface (MPI) application is being scheduled. This reduces management overhead, simplifies cluster scheduling and optimizes use of the fabric. Additional features include a congestion control algorithm and broad software support.
