Product Spotlight

Mellanox Launches End-to-End FDR InfiniBand & 40GbE Solutions

Last month, Mellanox introduced a complete solution for FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand consisting of adapter cards, switch systems, software and cables, becoming the first company to deliver a complete and robust end-to-end FDR InfiniBand infrastructure. The new solution delivers the highest level of networking performance while reducing system power consumption. Read more

Mellanox also recently announced the SX1000-series of high-density 10 and 40GbE switches, which deliver industry-leading capabilities in latency (230ns), bandwidth, density, scalability, and power in a single 1U device. Read more

Both the FDR InfiniBand & 10/40GbE solutions are based on the company's performance-leading SwitchX™ switch silicon ICs and use ConnectX®-3 adapter cards with Virtual Protocol Interconnect (VPI) supporting InfiniBand and Ethernet connectivity.

New for Web 2.0: Accelerating Hadoop & Memcached
Mellanox has introduced new application acceleration technology for Hadoop and Memcached. Mellanox's Unstructured Data Accelerator (UDA) accelerates Hadoop networks and improves the scaling of Hadoop clusters executing data analytics intensive applications. Read more

Customer Success Story
Mellanox FDR InfiniBand to Power the LRZ SuperMUC Supercomputer
The Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) selected Mellanox FDR InfiniBand solutions to enable petascale performance for the SuperMUC supercomputer. Utilizing IBM servers with onboard Mellanox FDR ConnectX®-3 InfiniBand mezzanine adapters and next-generation Intel Xeon processors, all connected and managed via 36-port and 648-port Mellanox FDR InfiniBand switches, software and copper and fiber cables, the SuperMUC system is estimated to deliver three petaflops.

Deep Dive - Mellanox for High Performance Computing (HPC)

Accelerating HPC Solutions with FDR InfiniBand
InfiniBand FDR (Fourteen Data Rate, 14Gb/s data rate per lane, 56Gb/s per port) is the next generation InfiniBand technology that introduces a number of enhancements for higher performance, scalability and reliability. These include:
  • Network Bandwidth: Data rate increase of more than 70% compared to previous InfiniBand generations
  • Network Latency: Reduction in latency enables faster communication and synchronization between application processes
  • Network Efficiency: Network spends more time on actual data delivery between application job processes compared to previous InfiniBand generations
  • Network Reliability & Data Integrity: Forward Error Correction (FED) was added to FDR and delivers superior network reliability and predictable low latency.
To learn more about how these and other enhancements can accelerate your HPC solutions, download this new white paper .

Deep Dive - Mellanox for the Enterprise Data Center

IDC Report: The Next Phase of Datacenter Network Resource Management and Automation
Increasingly, organizations are looking to move to the next phase of virtualization, which allows for the dynamic migration of workloads throughout the datacenter. In this paper, IDC analyzes the need for a virtual-aware dynamic fabric that enables the flexibility and efficiency of connectivity of virtualized workloads over 10GbE, with emphasis on dynamic resource allocation and automation. IDC also profiles Mellanox UFM software, which delivers:

  • Improved visibility into fabric performance and potential bottlenecks with its monitoring engine
  • Improved performance due to application-centric optimizations by correlating to an application through its event mechanism
  • Quicker troubleshooting time due to advanced event management
  • Efficient management of dynamic and multitenant environments
  • Reduced risk and increased compliance of fabric configuration changes
  • Real-time results because provisioning and monitoring systems are visible immediately
