All other network architectures are managed by a network control hierarchy. Lightfleet conceived and developed a network fabric, the Data Distribution System (DDS), where data transfers are self-directed, requiring no separate control plane to delay the data transfers.
The architecture performs with far less software and complexity to delivery dramatically reduced latency and network congestion, especially for multicasting applications. The first generation Lightfleet products for top-of-rack use in HPC systems are available for evluation now, after exhibiting more than 30% lower latency and up to 7X higher throughput as confirmed by Tolly Enterprises.
Stop-and-Go vs. Continuous Flow
The Traffic Grid Analogy
The Roundabout Analogy
The Proof is in Certified Performance.
STAC and Tolly reports are available, showing that the Lightfleet fabric has the highest throughput, lowest latency, lowest power consumption and zero multicast skew compared to Arista/Solarflare.
Certified Superior Performance
Data Distribution System
Stop cracking your knuckles. The nanosecond delays are over.
Lower latency, node-to-node, than the fastest switches.
More throughput, especially in congestion.
Far less power consumption, too.
