Comprehensive HPC software suite demonstrates more than 50 percent increased performance with leading applications
HPC-X provides complete communication libraries to support MPI, SHMEM and PGAS programming languages, as well as performance accelerators that take advantage of Mellanox's scalable interconnect solutions. HPC-X provides support for other interconnect solutions as well, based on the Ethernet and InfiniBand standards.
HPC-X Scalable Software Toolkit components and accelerators include:
"HPC-X enables you to rapidly deploy and deliver maximum application
performance without the complexity and costs of licensed third-party
tools and libraries," said
The benefits of HPC-X can easily be seen even at lower node counts compared to running with a standard version of Open MPI. OpenFOAM, a popular open-source computational fluid dynamics code used by both commercial and academic organizations, demonstrated a 58 percent productivity boost with HPC-X at just 16 nodes. LS-DYNA, a popular commercial general-purpose finite element program used by industry leaders in automotive and aerospace to analyze complex vehicle designs, demonstrated improved scalability and 76 percent improved productivity with HPC-X at only 32 nodes. The effects that HPC-X will demonstrate can be even greater with larger scale system deployments.

Safe Harbor Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995:
Certain matters discussed in this press release are forward-looking statements, including statements related to the need for high-performance data centers, Web 2.0, cloud and storage infrastructures to scale their 40Gb/s and 56Gb/s interconnect to 100Gb/s to address the exponential growth in data and the acceleration of large scale data center deployments.
These forward-looking statements are based on our current expectations, estimates and projections about our industry and business, management's beliefs and certain assumptions made by us, all of which are subject to change.
Forward-looking statements can often be identified by words such as "projects," "anticipates," "expects," "intends," "plans," "predicts," "believes," "seeks," "estimates," "may," "will," "should," "would," "could," "potential," "continue," "ongoing," similar expressions and variations or negatives of these words. These forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future results and are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions that could cause our actual results to differ materially and adversely from those expressed in any forward-looking statement.
The risks and uncertainties that could cause our results to differ
materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking
statements include the continued expansion of our product line, customer
base and the total available market of our products, the continued
growth in demand for our products, the continued, increased demand for
industry standards-based technology, our ability to react to trends and
challenges in our business and the markets in which we operate, our
ability to anticipate market needs or develop new or enhanced products
to meet those needs, the adoption rate of our products, our ability to
establish and maintain successful relationships with our OEM partners,
our ability to effectively compete in our industry, fluctuations in
demand, sales cycles and prices for our products and services, our
success converting design wins to revenue-generating product shipments,
the continued launch and volume ramp of large customer sales
opportunities, and our ability to protect our intellectual property
rights. Furthermore, the majority of our quarterly revenues are derived
from customer orders received and fulfilled in the same quarterly
period. We have limited visibility into actual end-user demand as such
demand impacts us and our OEM customer inventory balances in any given
quarter. Consequently, this introduces risk and uncertainty into our
revenue and production forecasts and business planning and could
negatively impact our financial results. In addition, current
uncertainty in the global economic environment poses a risk to the
overall economy as businesses may defer purchases in response to tighter
credit conditions, changing overall demand for our products, and
negative financial news. Consequently, our results could differ
materially from our prior results due to these general economic and
market conditions, political events and other risks and uncertainties
described more fully in our documents filed with or furnished to the
More information about the risks, uncertainties and assumptions that may
impact our business is set forth in our annual report on Form 10-K filed
