SBS Technologies model IB4X-IRIx is a driver, with HIPPI-FP (High Performance Parallel Interface-Framing Protocol) emulation for Infinband host channel adaptors (HCAs) supporting SGI 3.3V platforms.
IB4X-IRIX drivers enable the high data throughput, low latency, low CPU utilisation and enhanced reliability that application developers want and for which InfiniBand is noted. Using an upper level protocol (ULP) for HIPPI emulation that is compatible with HIPPI-FP applications, IB4X-IRIX drivers allow drop-in replacement of HIPPI 3.3V hardware with InfiniBand host channel adaptors (HCAs).
Based on a low-level application programming interface targeted specifically at real-time data analysis, post production, and other high data volume applications, IB4X-IRIX is easy to use; consequently application development time is minimal.
Designed to interconnect computing systems in the world of real time applications, Infiniband Technology, with data speeds up to 10Gbits/sec, adds a new level of performance for IRIX-based applications. Multiple systems can now achieve data throughput rates that were once only possible through proprietary point-to-point links. IB4X-IRIX drivers are available from Metromatics.
