New family of 120Gb/s InfiniBand switch systems deliver breakthrough performance and efficiency, ultra low-latency and the highest levels of scalability
PORTLAND, Ore. Nov. 16 -- SC09 -- Mellanox Technologies, Ltd., a leading supplier of end-to-end connectivity solutions for datacenter servers and storage systems, today announced the world's first 120Gb/s per port InfiniBand switch systems, delivering industry-leading throughput, performance, efficiency, and the lowest latency. Based on InfiniScale IV, Mellanox's 4th generation of InfiniBand switch silicon, the new members of the IS5000 switch system family deliver the highest networking bandwidth per port to enable the next generation of high-performance computing, cloud infrastructures and enterprise datacenters. The new switch solutions reduce network congestion and the number of network cables by a factor of three to provide customers with the optimal combination of cost-effective, proven performance and efficiency enhancements to address next-generation, petascale computing demands.
"As supercomputers scale, new challenges are created in performance and cabling," said John Monson, vice president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies. "Mellanox's new comprehensive family of 120Gb/s switch solutions deliver the performance, density and scalability for large-scale clusters, and provide researchers with essential building blocks for constructing the next generation of petascale-class clusters."
Mellanox IS5000 family of switch systems, consisting of un-managed and managed edge switches and director-class modular switches, provide industry-leading 51.8 Tb/s of non-blocking bandwidth in a single enclosure. FabricIT fabric management software reduces management overhead by providing the essential capabilities for managing systems at scale with simplicity and flexibility. IT managers can optimize datacenter performance and efficiency with FabricIT's performance monitoring, granular Quality of Service, and dynamic adaptation of the network to meet application demands in real-time. By enabling IT managers to adapt networking settings by application demands in real time, the IS5000 products deliver maximum systems productivity and efficiency for any usage model and for any scale.
Pricing and Availability
Mellanox's IS5000 family of 120Gb/s InfiniBand switch systems will be available in the first half of 2010. Pricing is available upon request. For more information, visit www.mellanox.com/is5000.
