Release Notes

Cluster networking for high performance computing

  • Services: Compute
  • Release Date: Sept. 4, 2019
  • API Versions Affected: 20160918

A cluster network is a pool of high performance computing (HPC) instances that are connected with a high-bandwidth, ultra low-latency network. Each node in the cluster is a bare metal machine located in close physical proximity to the other nodes. A remote direct memory access (RDMA) network between nodes provides latency as low as single-digit microseconds, comparable to on-premises HPC clusters.
