Today Mellanox announced the general availability of its new MetroX series of long-haul, low latency RDMA interconnects for campus and metro-wide data center connectivity. With its high-bandwidth InfiniBand and Ethernet RDMA connectivity, the MetroX TX6100 solution allows for rapid disaster recovery and improved utilization of remote storage and compute infrastructures across long distances and multiple geographic sites.
The demand for long-haul interconnect technologies continues to increase as organizations deploy remote, agile systems,” said Gilad Shainer, vice president of marketing at Mellanox. “Mellanox’s MetroX RDMA systems provide the highest performing interconnect solution over long distances.”
Early adopter Purdue University successfully deployed MetroX TX6100 over six kilometers to connect its computation clusters to storage facilities. Access to remote supercomputers allows the university to manage assets where there is limited datacenter space, resulting in higher facilities utilization without increased construction or building retrofit costs.
