Mellanox Network Adapters for 25G RoCE Ethernet Cloud Deployed in Alibaba
Enhanced Network Solution Offers Superior Performance for Cloud Infrastructure to Deliver Industry's Highest Efficiency and Business Value to Customers
The ConnectX-4 Network Interface Cards (NICs) has cutting edge technologies including:
RoCE - RDMA over Converged Ethernet
RDMA (Remote Direct Memory Access) technology is designed to solve the delay of server-side data processing in network transmission. RDMA enables network adapters to access the application buffer directly, bypassing the kernel, the CPU, and the protocol stack, so the CPU can perform more useful tasks during the I/O transport. This improves server performance, thus enabling application workloads to be highly scalable with high bandwidth networks.
RDMA (RoCE), based on converged Ethernet, can be implemented on an existing open Ethernet network. With RoCE, there is no need to convert data centers legacy infrastructures, which allows companies to save on capital spending.
RoCE enables introducing RDMA technology seamlessly into an Ethernet data center, which benefits applications by making them more efficient, without requiring massive changes to the current network infrastructure.
