Ethernet Won’t Replace InfiniBand for AI Networking in 2024

InfiniBand is the king of AI networking today. Ethernet is making a big leap to take some of that market share but it’s not going to dethrone the incumbent any time soon. In this episode, join Jody Lemoine, David Peñaloza, and Chris Grundemann along with Tom Hollingsworth as they debate the merits of using Ethernet in place of InfiniBand. They discuss the paradigm shift as well as the suitability of the protocols to the workloads as well as how Ultra Ethernet is similar to another shift in converged protocols – Fibre Channel over Ethernet.
