The RDMA/Advanced Networks software provides high performance computing sites and
enterprise data centers with flexibility and investment protection as computing evolves towards
applications that require extreme speeds, massive scalability and utility-class reliability. It includes
kernel-level drivers, channel-oriented RDMA and send/receive operations, kernel bypasses of the
operating system, both kernel and user-level application programming interface (API) and services
for parallel message passing (MPI), sockets data exchange (e.g., RDS, SDP), and NAS/SAN storage
(e.g. Lustre™, GPFS™, iSER, NFSoRDMA, SRP, NVMe-oF).
The RDMA/Advanced Networks software can run on various network and fabric technologies
including: legacy 10 Gigabit Ethernet, iWARP for Ethernet, RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE),
10/20/40/56/100 Gigabit InfiniBand™, and 100 Gigabit OmniPath™.
