    Mellanox and Infiniband limitation

    black.s

      Hello

      Sorry for some theoretic question but it interesting for me

       

      In Infiniband specification wrote what Infiniband network can support for up to 64,000 addressable devices.

       

      For a long time already the tendency to increase the number of hosts in the network (including the exaflop plans).

       

      How will the network be organized with more than 64,000 hosts ?

      Only by IB routers or Mellanox have plans to expand this limitation ?

       

      Thanks for your time
