New RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) Initiative Gets Underway

A new RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) Initiative has been launched by the InfiniBand Trade Association (IBTA) to raise awareness about the benefits that RoCE delivers for cloud, storage, virtualization and hyper-converged infrastructures.

Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) enables faster movement of data between servers and between servers and storage with much less work being done by the CPU. RoCE utilizes RDMA to enhance infrastructure solutions for hyper-converged data centers, cloud, storage, and virtualized environments (see RoCE video). The technology brings greater network utilization with lower latency and improved CPU efficiency, in addition to reducing overall financial investment by increasing server productivity while leveraging Ethernet technology. RoCE technology transports data across Layer 2 and Layer 3 networks, providing better traffic isolation and enabling hyperscale data center deployments.

“The RoCE Initiative will be the leading source for information on RDMA over Ethernet solutions,” said Barry Barnet, co-chair, IBTA Steering Committee. “The IBTA remains committed to furthering the InfiniBand specification, of which RoCE is a part. The RoCE Initiative expands our potential audience and will enable us to deliver solution information and resources to those requiring the highest performing Ethernet networks.”
