JPMorgan Chase Selects Voltaire for Datacenter Fabric

Voltaire Ltd., a leading provider of grid backbone solutions, announced that JPMorgan Chase (JPMC) has selected and deployed Voltaire InfiniBand-based Grid Backbone solutions for a unified datacenter fabric. By using Voltaire solutions, JPMC is able to use a new computing architecture that accelerates performance of its applications while significantly reducing overall datacenter costs.

As part of our new compute backbone architecture, Voltaires InfiniBand-based solutions enable us to deliver large quantities of computing horsepower to multiple applications across different lines of business in a highly efficient manner that significantly reduces our capital equipment costs, said Cory Shull, vice president of investment architecture for JPMC. InfiniBand enables a new class of IT infrastructure that will evolve our datacenters from application-based silos to unified fabrics that allow for greater agility and utilization while improving the bottom line.

Unified fabrics provide seamless, high-performance networking services between InfiniBand fabrics, Fibre Channel SANs and Ethernet LANs over a single high-performance fabric with multiple virtual interfaces replacing actual physical adapters. Voltaires Grid Director switches enable unified fabrics for the next-generation datacenter by addressing all three types of networking traffic within a single chassis.

JPMC selected Voltaire Grid Director InfiniBand-based switches for the compute fabric and Voltaire IP Routers which provide seamless connectivity to Ethernet LANs. The Voltaire solutions were deployed as part of a risk analysis grid in its North Harbor, United Kingdom, datacenter.

JPMC has long viewed InfiniBand as an enabling technology for our next-generation datacenter architecture. After extensive testing, we selected Voltaire as an InfiniBand provider because their solutions are robust and well-supported and have exceeded our expectations, Shull added.

We are very committed to our partnership with JPMC and look forward to replicating this compute backbone/grid model in additional datacenters worldwide, said Amir Prescher, vice president of business development at Voltaire. Voltaire has completed extensive development work during the last 18 months to ensure that we have the right solutions for our financial services customers and we have scaled our team to support their global organizations. Applications in financial services, ranging from market data and trading to next-generation datacenters, can benefit from the performance and efficiency provided by Voltaires InfiniBand-based solutions.
