Ray with InfiniBand

Low: It annoys or frustrates me for a moment.


This is inspired by the question Using Ray over InfiniBand. If my cluster has InfiniBand, does this mean Ray doesn’t work on it? Or does it just mean Ray will use some other protocol that isn’t as optimal as if Ray used InfiniBand but it will still work (i.e., doing zero-copy reads, etc.)?

Yes, Ray will work as long as the nodes can connect over gRPC; it just may not be able to take advantage of InfiniBand.
