TCCluster: A Cluster Architecture Utilizing the Processor Host Interface as a Network Interconnect

Heiner Litz, Maximilian Thuermer, Ulrich Bruening
2010 2010 IEEE International Conference on Cluster Computing  
We propose an entirely new architecture called Tightly Coupled Cluster (TCCluster) that instead uses the native host interface of the processors as a direct network interconnect.  ...  Instead, we use commodity off the shelf AMD processors and exploit the HyperTransport host interface as a cluster interconnect.  ...  CONCLUSION AND OUTLOOK We presented a novel technique named TCCluster for interconnecting large cluster systems by utilizing the processor host interface as a direct network interconnect.  ...
