Mellanox Message Acceleration Software Enables Lowest-Latency for a Wide Range of Financial Services and Web 2.0 Applications
VMA version 5.0 adds Industry-Best TCP Acceleration to its
Market-Leading Message Acceleration Solution
SUNNYVALE, Calif. & YOKNEAM, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX) (TASE: MLNX), a leading
supplier of end-to-end connectivity solutions for data center servers
and storage systems, today announced the general availability of
Mellanox VMA 5.0 with enhanced TCP acceleration support, providing a
unified messaging acceleration platform for all popular networking
communications methods such as TCP, Multicast and UDP unicast.
Mellanox's VMA message accelerator has been deployed and is providing
immediate return-on-investment benefits in multiple stock exchanges,
trading firms and capital market institutions worldwide.
Mellanox VMA 5.0 delivers sustainable latency under loads of over 2.5
million packets per second and dramatically improves UDP latency to
under 2.0 microseconds and transparent sockets TCP latency to under 2.5
microseconds, nearly two times better than competitive offerings.
Mellanox VMA 5.0, in conjunction with ConnectX®-2 adapters, delivers the
lowest latency and boosts performance for a wide range of
finance/trading and Web 2.0 data center applications.
"As data volumes increase in a variety of financial services and Web 2.0
market segments, data center IT end-users are quickly requiring faster,
transparent message acceleration solutions that seamlessly run on their
existing high-performance networking infrastructure," said John Monson,
vice president of product marketing at Mellanox Technologies.
"Mellanox's VMA can improve performance of any socket based application
that requires high packet-per-second rates, low data distribution
latency, low CPU utilization or increased application scalability."
Mellanox VMA provides the fastest order execution time, allowing
exchanges to increase market share over slower competing venues. For
traders, VMA allows the fastest response time to market data and
arbitrage opportunities, and the ability to minimize the impact of
pre-trade risk management, now being required by new federal regulations.
VMA is a dynamically-linked user-space Linux library for accelerating
messaging and streaming traffic. Applications that utilize standard BSD
sockets use the library to offload network processing from a server's
CPU, with no application changes required. The application traffic is
passed directly to the Mellanox ConnectX-2 10GigE or 40Gb/s InfiniBand
adapter from the application user space, bypassing the kernel and IP
stack and thus minimizing context switches, buffer copies and
interruptions resulting in extremely low latency and higher throughput.
Mellanox's VMA 5.0 boosts performance for message-based applications,
lowers latency and increases transactions per second for a wide-array of
applications such as:
Market data consumption & distribution application
High frequency trading and real-time risk management
Multi-sensor data acquisition processing
Online content delivery and web applications
Mellanox Messaging Accelerator TCP VMA 5.0 will be available through all
Mellanox channel partners and distributors at the end of the second
quarter. For more information, please visit www.mellanox.com.
