Dell speeds computing clusters

Dell has signed a deal with InfiniBand networking specialist Topspin Communications to update its technical computing clusters with the high-speed communications technology. In addition, the deal is expected to boost the use of databases that run on clusters instead of single large servers.

Topspin makes networking gear that joins servers, storage systems and other gear using InfiniBand, which offers high speeds and low delays in data transmission. Topspin already has tight partnerships with IBM and with Sun Microsystems.
