MellanoxToday Mellanox announced that its end-to-end InfiniBand and Ethernet interconnect solutions have been optimized for the new Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600 v3 product family (code name “Haswell”). The combination of Mellanox interconnects with the new Intel processors deliver fast bandwidth speeds of 100Gb/s with end-to-end data latencies of 650ns, resulting in higher data center efficiency, application performance and lower total cost of ownership.

The upcoming Intel processor technologies can take advantage of higher bandwidth interconnects to ensure optimal application performance and system efficiency,” said Steve Conway, IDC research vice president for high performance computing and data analysis. “For some data center upgrades this year, 10Gb/s will not be enough. Next-generation data centers will want to exploit the performance potential of EDR 100Gb/s InfiniBand and 40/56GbE. By positioning itself to offer bandwidth up to 100Gb/s, Mellanox aims to address the high bandwidth, low latency needs of the market.”

Mellanox FDR 56Gb/s and EDR 100Gb/s InfiniBand and 10/40/56Gb/s Ethernet products ensure that servers and storage systems leveraging Intel’s new processor will be fully utilized and provide the highest application performance in High-Performance Computing, Web 2.0, cloud, Big Data and storage environments. Mellanox’s line of InfiniBand and Ethernet solutions provide industry-leading flexibility for data center designs, enabling IT managers to build scalable, standards-based, future-proofed platforms. Mellanox interconnect adapters, switch systems, cables and software optimized for Intel’s new platforms are available now and include OEM support from such leading vendors as Dell, HP, and IBM.
