In this video, Gilad Shainer from Mellanox describes the company’s dominating  results on the TOP500 list of the world’s fastest supercomputers. “At SC19, Mellanox announced that 200 gigabit per second HDR InfiniBand accelerates 31% of the new 2019 InfiniBand systems on November’s TOP500 supercomputing list, demonstrating market demand for faster data speeds and smart interconnect technologies. Moreover, HDR InfiniBand connects the fastest TOP500 supercomputer built in 2019.”

Mellanox LongReach Appliance Extends InfiniBand Connectivity up to 40 Kilometers

Today Mellanox introduced the Mellanox Quantum LongReach series of long-distance InfiniBand switches. Mellanox Quantum LongReach systems provide the ability to seamlessly connect remote InfiniBand data centers together, or to provide high-speed and full RDMA (remote direct memory access) connectivity between remote compute and storage infrastructures. Based on the 200 gigabit HDR Mellanox Quantum InfiniBand switch, the LongReach solution provides up to two long-reach InfiniBand ports and eight local InfiniBand ports. The long reach ports can deliver up to 100Gb/s data throughput for distances of 10 and 40 kilometers.
