z/OS V2R1 CS: Shared Memory Communications - RDMA (SMC-R), Part 1
Project and Program: Enterprise Data Center
, Communications Server
, SHARE in Boston 2013
z/OS V2R1 Communications Server, along with zEnterprise EC12 and zEnterprise BC12 systems with the 10 GbE RoCE Express feature, support a new communications protocol called Shared Memory Communications - RDMA (SMC-R). This new protocol is designed to provide highly efficient, low-latency data transfer between z/OS systems over RoCE (RDMA over Converged Ethernet) in a manner transparent to socket applications.
In part 1 of this two-part session, we will look at how SMC-R works, its benefits and requirements, and some early performance benchmarks. Gus Kassimis IBM Corporation
