Mellanox ConnectX-5 Sets DPDK Performance Record with 100Gb/s Ethernet

“The I/O intensive nature of the Virtualized Network Functions (VNFs) including virtual Firewall, virtual Evolved Packet Core (vEPC), virtual Session Border Controller (vSBC), Anti-DDoS and Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) applications have posed significant challenges to build cost-effective NFV Infrastructures that meet packet rate, latency, jitter and security requirements. Leveraging its wealth of experience in building high-performance server/storage I/O components and switching systems for High Performance Computing, Hyperscale data centers, and telecommunications operators, Mellanox has the industry’s broadest range of intelligent Ethernet NIC and switch solutions; spanning interface speeds from 10, 25, 40, 50 to 100Gb/s.”

HPE and Mellanox: Advanced Technology Solutions for HPC

In this special guest feature, Scot Schultz from Mellanox and Terry Myers from HPE write that the two companies are collaborating to push the boundaries of high performance computing. “So while every company must weigh the cost and commitment of upgrading its data center or HPC cluster to EDR, the benefits of such an upgrade go well beyond the increase in bandwidth. Only HPE solutions that include Mellanox end-to-end 100Gb/s EDR deliver efficiency, scalability, and overall system performance that results in maximum performance per TCO dollar.”
