Does Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) support using InfiniBand communications in the network?
It is used for data interconnect both among and within computers. This is the most commonly used interconnect in supercomputers.
InfiniBand host bus adapters and network switches are manufactured by Mellanox and Intel. Mellanox InfiniBand cards are available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, Windows, HP-UX, VMware ESX.
It is designed to be scalable and uses a switched fabric network topology. As an interconnect, InfiniBand competes with Ethernet and proprietary technologies such as Cray's.
In networking, InfiniBand competes with Gigabit Ethernet, 10-gigabit Ethernet and 100 Gigabit Ethernet. InfiniBand is used for direct-attached storage. The technology is promoted by the InfiniBand Trade Association.
InfiniBand uses a switched fabric topology, as opposed to early shared medium Ethernet.
