About the OFA

The OpenFabrics Alliance (OFA) promotes the development of next-generation, high-speed communication links between computers. "Open" refers to the organization's commitment to open-source software, while "fabric" refers loosely to a local-area network from the transport layer down. "High-speed" is currently taken to mean 10 Gbps and higher. Speed improvement is achieved through the use of RDMA (remote direct memory access), which allows computers to read from and write to each other's memory, removing a large burden from both computers' CPUs.

The OFA currently validates three fabric technologies: InfiniBand, iWARP and RoCE.

  • InfiniBand is a popular fabric for clustered supercomputers. 
  • iWARP runs over conventional Internet/Ethernet networks. 
  • RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) runs over data center bridging capable Ethernet networks.

Any program written according to OFA standards will run with little to no change on an InfiniBand fabric or an iWARP or RoCE Ethernet fabric.

About the OFA-IWG

Among the several working groups within the OFA is the Interoperability Working Group (OFA-IWG). This working group develops interoperability tests for OpenFabrics devices. All members of the OFA are welcome to participate in that development process without paying additional fees beyond their OFA membership dues.
