and Beyond for Warehouse Scale Computing
Abstract: As computation and storage continues to move from desktops
to large internet services, computing platforms running such services are transforming
into warehouse-scale computers. 100 Gigabit Ethernet and beyond will be instrumental in
scaling the interconnection within and between these ubiquitous warehouse-scale
computing infrastructures. In this paper, we describe the drivers for such interfaces
and some methods of scaling Ethernet interfaces to speeds beyond 100GbE.
