Mellanox FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand Accelerates X-IO’s ISE-2 Intelligent Storage Solution

Stocks in this article: MLNX

Microsoft TechEd – 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 that its RDMA technology for InfiniBand running Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V enabled a new price/performance record for remote storage using X-IO’s ISE-2 Intelligent Storage Solution. Benchmark results attained a sustainable rate of more than 15GB/s of throughput using a single-client server equipped with three ConnectX®-3 FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand adapters communicating to three storage servers with a total of storage capacities exceeding 100 terabytes.

This unprecedented performance eliminates storage bottlenecks and drives data centers to operate closer to their theoretical performance. Using this solution will help IT managers to simplify deployment and to meet their performance goal at a much lower total cost of ownership. These performance results were achieved using the new Microsoft SMB Direct protocol implemented in Windows Server 2012 RC running over X-IO’s ISE-2 Intelligent Storage Solution.

“Windows Server 2012 SMB Direct enables impressive improvements in storage performance, as these benchmarks show,” said Ian Carlson, Director, Product Marketing, Windows Server and Virtualization, at Microsoft. “At lower cost and with high performance, customers can significantly increase data center efficiency.”

X-IO designed its Intelligent Storage Elements and architecture from the ground up to accelerate enterprise applications and drive ‘Xcellent’ storage price/performance. It uses commodity servers that are connected by Mellanox’s FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand adapters and switches.

“At X-IO we are driven to deliver very high performance storage solutions with ‘Unmatched Performance with Unmatched Value’,” said X-IO Vice President Rick Nelson. “Incorporating interconnect solutions from Mellanox is consistent with that business perspective.”

Mellanox’s RDMA interconnect technology provides greater performance and reduced CPU overhead in enterprise data center applications. Mellanox’s RDMA-based interconnect technologies deployed in the ISE-2 include ConnectX®-3 InfiniBand adapters and SwitchX® SX6036 managed switch, both running at FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand speeds.
