QLogic announced today that their Infiniband adapters will now be available directly from Voltaire. Voltaire will offer the QLogic 7300 series of HCAs alongside its Grid Director line of QDR switches.
The QLogic 7300 Series is a highly compelling QDR InfiniBand HCA that complements all of our high performance Grid Director 40 Gb/s InfiniBand switches,” said Asaf Somekh, vice president of marketing at Voltaire. “This collaboration with QLogic enables us to offer customers more highly scalable connectivity options from one convenient source.”
This agreement marks the continued expansion of our InfiniBand HCAs in the HPC market place,” said Jesse Parker, vice president and general manager of the Network Solutions Group at QLogic. “QLogic 7300 Series HCAs deliver a higher messaging rate and lower scalable latency than any comparative cluster interconnect available today. Delivering a message rate of 30 million messages per second, the QLogic 7300 Series outperforms comparative QDR adapters by a ratio of more than five to one(1). We look forward to collaborating with Voltaire to address customers’ increasingly complex HPC requirements.”
