    C|Net: InfiniBand reborn for supercomputing
    Posted by Kenneth Farmer (Friday November 22 2002 @ 02:32PM EST) [ ]
    After failing to deliver on its promise to remake mainstream business computing, the high-speed networking technology known as InfiniBand may be making a comeback as a new way to create supercomputers.

    Los Alamos National Laboratory has installed a major supercomputer made of 128 computers interconnected by InfiniBand, and a host of InfiniBand companies announced products this week at the SC2002 supercomputing show in Baltimore.

    The surge in support is a reversal of fortune for InfiniBand, a standard initially developed by computing giants including IBM, Intel, Hewlett-Packard, Compaq Computer, Dell Computer and Sun Microsystems to succeed the omnipresent PCI technology used to plug devices such as network cards into computers.

    InfiniBand failed in its original mainstream mission, with Microsoft and Intel stepping away from the technology.
