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 FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand solutions deliver unmatched application performance over competing interconnect solutions. Benchmarks performed on multiple applications, such as OpenFOAM (Computational Fluid Dynamic), NAMD (Molecular Dynamics), RADIOSS (Structural Analysis), LAMMPS (Molecular Dynamics), WRF (Weather Research and Forecasting) and CP2K (Molecular Simulations) demonstrate higher performance – 20 to 30 percent higher performance with sixteen compute nodes compared to QDR 40Gb/s InfiniBand, and 100 to 200 percent higher performance compared to 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet. Furthermore, Mellanox’s Connect-IB FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand adapter delivers 3X higher message rate over competing solutions, enabling 137 million messages per second. The performance capabilities demonstrated by FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand are critical to High-Performance Computing (HPC), Web 2.0, cloud, Big Data and financial applications which require the highest bandwidth and the lowest latency to provide a competitive advantage to their users.
“These application benchmarks highlight the performance advantage of FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand and the return-on-investment it provides to users,” said Gilad Shainer, vice president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies. “Mellanox’s FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand solution is the most efficient interconnect solution for connecting servers and storage systems, delivering high throughput, low latency and world-leading application performance.”
Available today, Mellanox’s FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand solution includes ConnectX®-3 and Connect-IB adapter cards, SwitchX®-2 based switches (from 12-port to 648-port), fiber and copper cables, and ScalableHPC accelerator and management software. Mellanox will demonstrate these performance advantages at the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC’13).
