Sorry, is it correct to say that fat tree topology is equal to
*NON-BLOCKING* Clos network w/addition of "uplinks" ? I.e. any
non-blocking Clos network w/corresponding addition of uplinks gives
fat tree ?
I read somewhere that exact evidence of "non-blocking" was performed
for Clos networks with >= 3 levels. But most popular Infiniband fat
trees has only 2 levels.
(Yes, I know that "non-blocking" for Clos network isn't "absolute"
