Lower latency and higher throughput than any switched fabric.

Switch to

switch-less

networking.

A totally new and radically better approach for networking

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.

Dramatically reducing latencies and increasing throughput. Learn more.

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.

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.
