Mellanox FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand Delivers Application Performance, Scalability
LEIPZIG, Germany -- Mellanox Technologies, Ltd., a leading supplier of high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data center servers and storage systems, 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.
Mellanox’s FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand 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).
