Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Today the RoCE Initiative at the InfiniBand Trade Association announced the availability of the RoCE Product Directory. The new online resource is intended to inform CIOs and enterprise data center architects about their options for deploying RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) technology within their Ethernet infrastructure.

The RoCE Product Directory is comprised of a growing catalogue of RoCE-enabled solutions provided by members of the IBTA. The directory allows users to search by product type and/or brand, connecting them directly to each item’s specific product page. The online directory currently contains RoCE capable Adapter Cards and LAN on Motherboard Application Specific ICs (LOM ASIC).

“As a longtime member of the IBTA and pioneer of RoCE technology, Mellanox is proud to participate in the RoCE Initiative’s product directory,” said Kevin Deierling, Vice President of Marketing, Mellanox Technologies. “Now on our fifth generation of ConnectX RoCE adapters, our customers are able to achieve dramatic improvements in storage and compute platform efficiency and performance. Continued innovation has allowed our RoCE solutions to accelerate performance over ordinary Ethernet networks, without requiring any special configuration to operate losslessly.”

The RoCE Initiative, an education and resource program of the InfiniBand Trade Association (IBTA), is committed to increasing RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) awareness by providing technical education and reference solutions for high performance Ethernet topologies in traditional and cloud-based data centers. The RoCE Initiative produces training webinars and sponsors events with leading providers of RDMA technology as well as resource materials for those interested in learning more about improving data center performance.

IBTA members are leading the advancement of the enterprise data center through the development of specifications, benchmarking performance improvements, and by presenting case studies that address the need for efficient data movement, improved application performance and reduced total cost of ownership.
