Mellanox Interconnect Solutions Accelerate New HP Apollo Family
High-performance platforms with compact footprint, energy efficiency
and superior performance now within reach of data centers of all sizes
LEIPZIG, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX), a leading supplier of
high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data center
servers and storage systems, today announced that HP's Apollo family of
high-performance computing systems are accelerated by Mellanox's FDR
56Gb/s InfiniBand and 10/40 Gigabit Ethernet interconnect solutions to
maximize data center return-on-investment and solve space and energy
Apollo family utilizes a modular rack design with advanced air and
water cooling techniques, Smart Memory and Smart Sensors. Compared to
standard rack servers of the same footprint, the new systems increase
performance by 4X while using less energy. The new HP Apollo family with
Mellanox interconnects, enables enterprises to take advantage of the
power of data and to enhance their processing capabilities for the
applications of tomorrow.
"We are pleased to collaborate with HP to develop the new Apollo Systems
with Mellanox interconnects," said Chuck Tybur, vice president, global
accounts & America's OEM sales from Mellanox Technologies. "The joint
solution enables customers to quickly deploy a scalable and efficient
high-performance data center and accelerate their mission critical
applications, while significantly reducing costs."
"The HP Apollo family with Mellanox interconnects harnesses the power of
HPC, while running an eco-friendly data center," said Scott Misage,
general manager, High Performance Computing, HP. "Enterprises looking to
adopt HPC technology and early adopters can both benefit from the
economic and environmental gains with our new solutions."
The HP Apollo portfolio features the HP Apollo 6000 System and HP Apollo
8000 System. The HP Apollo 6000 System has an air cooled server rack
design with up to 160 servers per rack, external power shelf and
Mellanox's ConnectX®-3 adapter cards with Virtual Protocol Interconnect
(VPI). The ConnectX-3 adapter cards with VPI supports FDR 56Gb/s
InfiniBand and 10/40 Gigabit Ethernet with RoCE connectivity. The
solution reduces operating expenses by up to 45 percent and decreases
floor space by up to 60 percent than a competing blade. Enterprises with
demanding applications such as electronic design automation or financial
service risk analysis can now leverage the power of HPC with an
infrastructure that is flexible, affordable and easy to manage.
The HP Apollo 8000 System, with Mellanox's ConnectX-3 Pro FDR 56Gb/s
InfiniBand dual-port adapters and SwitchX®-2 FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand, has
up to 144 servers per rack and is a 100 percent water-cooled
supercomputer with 4X more teraflops of performance per rack compared to
air cooled designs. The eco-friendly design eliminates up to 3,800 tons
of carbon dioxide waste per year from each data center and the water
used to cool the system can be used as a heat source for facilities,
further reducing operating expenses.
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.
