InfiniBand Leadership Continues to Grow; Now Connecting 224 Systems on the TOP500, Nearly 20 Percent More Than Ethernet
InfiniBand connectivity expands to clouds; Connects the most
efficient cloud on the list; Number of FDR InfiniBand-based systems more
SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
SC12 -— Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX) (TASE:
MLNX), a leading supplier of end-to-end interconnect solutions for data
center servers and storage systems, today announced that the company
continued its lead as the global interconnect solution provider for the
TOP500 list of supercomputers with InfiniBand further growing as the top
interconnect of choice for the TOP500 with 224 clusters. From June 2012
to November 2012, the number of FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand systems increased
by nearly 2.3X, including the top two ranked InfiniBand systems on the
list, showing the increasing demand for higher performance, scalability
The new list showcased the expansion of InfiniBand connecting cloud
infrastructures. InfiniBand enables the most efficient cloud
infrastructure on the list, more than 30 percent higher efficiency than
other cloud solutions listed. Furthermore, Mellanox ConnectX® InfiniBand
adapters and switch systems optimize server and storage performance and
provide the scalable, low-latency, and power-efficient interconnect for
the world's fastest supercomputers, connecting 43 percent (10 systems)
of all PetaScale based systems (23 systems).
The advanced offloads and accelerations within Mellanox InfiniBand
solutions enable the most performance efficient system on the TOP500
list, at nearly 96 percent system and CPU efficiency.
"Mellanox's scalable InfiniBand solutions provide the highest systems
utilization in the TOP500 for both high-performance computing and
clouds. As the most used interconnect for the TOP500 list and the
world's Petascale systems, Mellanox InfiniBand solutions provide the
best return-on-investment," said Eyal Waldman, president, chairman and
CEO of Mellanox Technologies. "We are proud to have the most efficient
cloud be interconnected with InfiniBand and expect to see more cloud
infrastructures adopt InfiniBand as their compute and storage
interconnect. We're seeing the cost per cloud or hosted services per
transaction/user reduced when using RDMA technology, on either
InfiniBand or Ethernet with our Virtual Protocol Interconnect®
technology, due to its efficiency and utilization improvements."
Published twice a year and publicly available at www.Top500.org,
the TOP500 list ranks the world's most powerful computer systems
according to the Linpack benchmark rating system.
