Cisco integrating Ethernet with Infiniband for HiPC

Cisco today announced that it is expanding its portfolio of solutions that support high performance computing by delivering a common framework which will integrate Ethernet and InfiniBand, end-to-end management software, and a new InfiniBand switching platform and operating system software. The solution will integrate the Cisco SFS 7000D Series InfiniBand DDR switches with the above features, to simplify the deployment of clusters.

It is interesting to observe these two technologies which were developed parallely and competed with each other, now being supported together by multiple vendors.
