HAMBURG, Germany, June 18 -- Mellanox Technologies, Ltd., a leading supplier of high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data center servers and storage systems, today announced that its 40 Gigabit Ethernet interconnect solutions with RoCE (RDMA over Converged Ethernet) support have been optimized to deliver the highest performance for compute and storage intensive applications. Mellanox is the first and only company to deliver a complete end-to-end, RoCE enabled, 40GbE solution including NICs, switches, cables and software accelerators. Mellanox 40GbE based clusters, accelerated with RoCE technology, deliver a more than 80 percent application performance increase compared to 10GbE based clusters. For storage access, Mellanox 40GbE delivers 4X faster storage throughput, enabling new levels of storage density and dramatic savings in CAPEX and OPEX.
Mellanox has tested various applications with its ISV partners. Oil and Gas applications have demonstrated nearly 60 percent performance increase using 40GbE with RoCE versus 10GbE solutions. CAE (Computational Aided Engineering) applications demonstrated more than 80 percent performance increase.
The combination of PCIe 3.0 platforms and Mellanox 40GbE products with RoCE ensures that servers and storage are fully utilized and deliver maximum return-on-investment. Mellanox RoCE accelerated ConnectX®-3 PCI Express 3.0 40GbE NICs, and SwitchX® 40GbE switch systems are available now and include OEM support from leading vendors.
“High-performance servers and storage require maximum interconnect throughput to deliver the best return-on-investment. Anything less than 40Gb/s will limit application performance,” said David Barzilai, vice president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies. “Mellanox delivers the highest application performance and densities over Ethernet with the industry’s only, comprehensive end-to-end 40GbE interconnect solution, dramatically reducing IT costs and enabling a power efficient compute center.”
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. Mellanox offers a choice of fast interconnect products: adapters, switches, software and silicon that accelerate application runtime and maximize business results for a wide range of markets including high performance computing, enterprise data centers, Web 2.0, cloud, storage and financial services.
