HDR InfiniBand Technology Reshapes the World of High-Performance and Machine Learning Platforms

“The recent announcement of HDR InfiniBand included the three required network elements to achieve full end-to-end implementation of the new technology: ConnectX-6 host channel adapters, Quantum switches and the LinkX family of 200Gb/s cables. The newest generations of InfiniBand bring the game changing capabilities of In-Network Computing and In-Network Memory to further enhance the new paradigm of Data-Centric data centers – for High-Performance Computing, Machine Learning, Cloud, Web2.0, Big Data, Financial Services and more – dramatically increasing network scalability and introducing new accelerations for storage platforms and data center security.”

What’s Next for HPC? A Q&A with Michael Kagan, CTO of Mellanox

As an HPC technology vendor, Mellanox is in the business of providing the leading-edge interconnects that drive many of the world’s fastest supercomputers. To learn more about what’s new for SC16, we caught up with Michael Kagan, CTO of Mellanox. “Moving InfiniBand beyond EDR to HDR is critical not only for HPC, but also for the numerous industries that are adopting AI and Big Data to make real business sense out the amount of data available and that we continue to collect on a daily basis.”

Mellanox Brings HDR to SC16 while Dominating Today’s TOP500

“InfiniBand’s advantages of highest performance, scalability and robustness enable users to maximize their data center return on investment. InfiniBand was chosen by far more end-users compared to a proprietary offering, resulting in a more than 85 percent market share. We are happy to see our open Ethernet adapter and switch solutions enable all of the 40G and the first 100G Ethernet systems on the TOP500 list, resulting in overall 194 systems using Mellanox for their compute and storage connectivity.”

Slidecast: Mellanox Announces 200Gb/s HDR InfiniBand Solutions

In this slidecast, Gilad Shainer from Mellanox announces the world’s first HDR 200Gb/s data center interconnect solutions. “These 200Gb/s HDR InfiniBand solutions maintain Mellanox’s generation-ahead leadership while enabling customers and users to leverage an open, standards-based technology that maximizes application performance and scalability while minimizing overall data center total cost of ownership. Mellanox 200Gb/s HDR solutions will become generally available in 2017.”
