Fabric Computing

Definition - What does Fabric Computing mean?

Fabric computing is a process through which a set of computing nodes and links are connected in such a way that they resemble a fabric when viewed collectively. Fabric computing is a high-performance computing system that consists of connected storage, networking and parallel processing functions interlinked with each other through high-bandwidth connections.

Fabric computing is also known as unified computing and related to unified fabric, data center fabric, grid computing and unified data centers.

Techopedia explains Fabric Computing

Fabric computing was derived and evolved from the concepts, operation and functionality of grid computing. This type of infrastructure is designed in such a way that a substantial amount of hardware-based computing resources are connected to represent a unified and integrated computing infrastructure. The created pool of infrastructure through fabric computing has the ability to scale robustly, provides parallel processing services and has dynamic and flexible reconfiguration capability.

The term fabric is used to represent computing resources such as processors, memory, storage and other components that are interlinked or interwoven with each other to work and operate cohesively.
