Connect-IB is the new foundation for scalable computing. HPC, Web 2.0,
and cloud environments are challenging today's interconnect technologies
with their demand for infrastructures, utilizing tens-of-thousands of
servers, and hundreds of virtual machines per server. New applications
such as Big Data analytics and in-memory computing depend on parallel
execution and RDMA (Remote Direct Memory Access). RDMA has also become
critical for storage solutions. The new Connect-IB interconnect
architecture delivers the performance and capabilities required by
compute and storage intensive applications and enables IT managers to
build the most efficient, extreme scale data centers.
"In the high-performance computing server and storage markets, the
explosion of data volumes is significantly increasing the demand for
network throughput," said Steve Conway, IDC research vice president for
HPC. "The introduction of interconnect technology at 100Gb/s is an
important step towards meeting these demands. With the rollout of
powerful next-generation compute servers including Intel's Romley, we
expect growing demand from a variety of HPC markets for highly scalable,
high bandwidth, low latency interconnect solutions such as those being
offered by Mellanox."
"Mellanox is the first company to deliver 100Gb/s interconnect
throughput — a significant breakthrough to take our customers to the
next level of scalable computing," said Eyal Waldman, chairman,
president and CEO of Mellanox Technologies. "Connect-IB delivers the
industry's highest performing server and storage interconnect with
maximum bandwidth, low latency and highest application efficiency."
The Connect-IB product line consists of single and dual port adapters
for PCI Express 3.0 with options for x8 and x16 host bus interfaces as
well as a single port adapter for PCI Express 2.0 x16. Each port
supports FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand with MPI ping latency less than 1us. All
Mellanox HCAs support CPU offload of transport operations and RDMA for
efficient computing. New in Connect-IB is Dynamic Transport operation
support for unlimited scalability and end-to-end data protection for
unmatched data reliability. Adapter cards are sampling today.
Mellanox Technologies is a leading supplier of end-to-end InfiniBand and
Ethernet interconnect solutions and services for servers and storage.
Mellanox interconnect solutions increase data center efficiency by
providing the highest throughput and lowest latency, delivering data
faster to applications and unlocking system performance capability.
Mellanox offers a choice of fast interconnect products: adapters,
switches, software and silicon that accelerate application runtime and
maximize business results for a wide range of markets including high
performance computing, enterprise data centers, Web 2.0, cloud, storage
and financial services. More information is available at www.mellanox.com.
