Call for Availability
High-performance computing (HPC) solutions require high-bandwidth, low- latency components with CPU offloads to get the highest server efficiency and application productivity. The Mellanox ConnectX-3 FDR VPI IB/E and Dual Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet InfiniBand adapters for IBM system x deliver the I/O performance that meets these requirements.
InfiniBand ConnectX-3 delivers low latency, high bandwidth, and computing efficiency for performance-driven server and storage clustering applications. Efficient computing is achieved by offloading from the CPU routine activities, which makes more processor power available for the application. Network protocol processing and data movement impacts, such as InfiniBand RDMA and Send/Receive semantics, are completed in the adapter without CPU intervention. The ConnectX-3 advanced acceleration technology enables higher cluster efficiency and scalability of up to tens of thousands of nodes.
