Mellanox and Bon Trade Benchmark Over 598 Million Messages a Second Over RDMA on Windows Server 2008 R2
Benchmark achieved while testing RDMA messaging across Mellanox's FDR
56Gb/s InfiniBand interconnect solutions and HP Proliant Gen8 servers
SIFMA, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ:MLNX) (TASE:MLNX), a leading
supplier of high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data
center servers and storage systems, today announced a benchmark result
of over 598 million messages a second achieved in the HP low-latency lab
in Houston, TX. Mellanox and Bon Trade Solutions achieved the result
while testing RDMA messaging used in enterprise trading and pre-trade
risk systems across a Mellanox InfiniBand network on HP Proliant
Generation 8 (Gen8) servers running Windows Server 2008 R2.
Message rates as high as 598.4 million messages a second were produced
with single digit microsecond latency. The testing included various
workload scenarios, demonstrating the advantages of high bandwidth
provided by two Mellanox ConnectX®-3 InfiniBand adapters connected to a
Mellanox SwitchX® based FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand switch. The test used all
16 processor cores on each of two HP Proliant DL 380 Gen8 servers. A
full report of the test is available at www.bon-trade.com/mellanox.
Bon Trade's RMC RDMA messaging provides clients with numerous benefits.
The ultra-high messaging rate enables Bon Trade to process huge amounts
of quote data for their pre-trade risk calculations. RMC messaging also
increases the system's ability to handle huge order bursts from the
electronic trading community. The use of RDMA across InfiniBand
substantially reduces the latency of internal network hops necessary for
a high availability system. Clients will see improved execution rates as
their orders are consistently processed in a few microseconds.
Leveraging this new technology can substantially reduce datacenter foot
prints as a full enterprise trading system can now be deployed with half
the servers previously required.
"Data path independence is one of the most impressive aspects of using
RDMA over Mellanox`s InfiniBand hardware," said Thomas McSherry, Chief
System Architect of Bon Trade Solutions. "Message throughput scaled
almost perfectly across all sixteen cores. We could literally predict
the message rate by plugging in the source and destination CPU clock
speeds. Message flow behaved like a liquid. The predictability and
single-digit microsecond latency of RDMA over Mellanox`s hardware will
translate directly into higher execution rates for our clients. The
independence of the data path means we can predictably build and
configure client systems that meet their requirements and budget."
"These performance results highlight the continued success of the
Microsoft, Mellanox Technologies and Bon Trade Solutions relationship in
delivering ultra-high performance, low latency trade messaging," said
Joe Pagano, worldwide managing director, Banking and Capital Markets,
Microsoft. "These exciting results show how we are working together to
meet the needs of our customers in maximizing trading efficiency at a
"The addition of RDMA capabilities to Windows Server 2008 R2 opens up
many new opportunities for ISVs and traders alike," said Amir Prescher,
VP of Business Development at Mellanox Technologies. "Together with
Microsoft and Bon Trade, we have created a system for the high frequency
and electronic trading community that offers unprecedented message
rates, low latencies and high scalability on Windows Server 2008 R2."
