The need to gain network and server efficiencies is paramount to every IT solution. By combining key technologies from the adapter and switch, Mellanox can accelerate networks and reduce CPU utilization for increased scalability and the highest efficiency. Explore how Mellanox's broad portfolio of Ethernet and InfiniBand technologies can enhance your network and take your solution to the next level.
High Performance Computing (HPC)
Mellanox InfiniBand solutions incorporate In-Network Computing to carry out computational operations on the data as it is being transferred, delivering ten times higher performance, and enabling “data-centric” computing. By delivering the fastest data speed, lowest latency, and utilizing smart accelerations Mellanox InfiniBand and Ethernet technologies offer the highest efficiency, resiliency and are the best choice for connecting the world’s top HPC supercomputers.
Data centers have evolved significantly in recent years, adopting technologies such as virtualization and flash-based storage. As IT needs continue to evolve, many organizations focus on initiatives to increase network bandwidth and server efficiencies to unlock the performance of servers and storage. By incorporating network accelerators and CPU offloads Mellanox Ethernet and InfiniBand interconnects eliminate operating system overhead and increase server and networking efficiencies to help optimize investments in new technologies.
Web 2.0 is companies provide Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). To be profitable, they use commodity hardware to keep data center costs low. To help cost-conscious Web 2.0 customers deliver the best ROI for their organization Mellanox InfiniBand and Ethernet interconnects provide low latency and high throughput to enable increased hardware utilization. Furthermore, Mellanox hardware and software offloads and accelerators improve network and CPU efficiencies to improve scalability and ensure an optimum end-user experience.
Artificial Intelligence applications are based on training a deep neural network, which requires complex computations and fast and efficient data delivery. Mellanox Ethernet and InfiniBand technologies enable intelligent offloading such as RDMA and GPUDirect®, and In-Network Computing capabilities that dramatically improve neural network training performance. Mellanox interconnect are the most deployed high-speed interconnects for accelerating popular frameworks such as TensorFlow, PaddlePaddle, Caffe and Apache Spark for organizations such as Baidu, Facebook, JD.com, NVIDIA, PayPal, Tencent, Yahoo and many more.
Mellanox's Ethernet and InfiniBand interconnects are used by the largest Cloud providers to build out the highly virtualized infrastructures required for cloud networks. Mellanox allows companies to build the most efficient, high performance and scalable clouds base on open standards, CPU offloads and network accelerators to optimize workloads, and increase efficiencies in cloud infrastructure. This helps create a best-in-class foundation for maximizing the value of the network for both enterprise and service provider data center.
Storage is undergoing a speed revolution. Flash media and faster interfaces like NVMe are overwhelming traditional 8G/16G Fibre Channel and 10Gb Ethernet networks. Faster servers and new cloud, analytics, and artificial intelligence (AI) workloads demand more bandwidth and lower latency. Mellanox offers ideal storage interconnect for a more modern storage environment at speeds from 10 to 200Gb/s, delivering the best efficiency, highest performance and greatest scalability for storage networking.
The ultimate competitive advantage in low latency trading lies in the ability to access and process data faster than the competition. Trading firms require a high performing and agile infrastructure that can addresses the enormous volumes and surges typically associated with periods of market volatility. Speed is the key factor, making it critical to establish the lowest possible latency between processes. Mellanox end-to-end smart interconnect technology and VMA Messaging Accelerator Software provide the lowest and most deterministic latency.
Mellanox Federal Systems addresses the demand of local and federal government for interconnect solutions and to drive the development of new applications. Mellanox has supported the government’s IT networking needs for more than 10 years and has established itself as a trusted partner in delivering high-performance networking requirements for complex projects requiring the processing of large amounts of data over distributed systems.
Public cloud and communication service providers are moving towards disaggregation and server virtualization as key tenets to modernize their networks. An advanced network infrastructure must be in place to support virtualization efficiencies and accelerate network packet processing. Mellanox IP product portfolio allows for software defined networking (SDN), high-performance OVS offload and secure data deliver for mission critical workloads. This empowers service providers to boost their efficiency and turbo charge NFV solutions.
Enterprise architectures are transforming, driven by private, public and hybrid cloud architectures delivering virtualized and cloud native applications. Protecting distributed assets on-prem and in the cloud from cyber-attacks as well as conforming to new regulations, requires a fresh approach to security. Mellanox offers a variety of options including physical isolation, stateful next-gen firewall, IPsec, SSL/TLS, data-at-rest encryption protocols and intrusion detection and prevention (IDS/IPS) using our BlueField SmartNIC.
Media and Entertainment
Mellanox end-to-end Ethernet video fabric (EVF) empowers broadcasters to innovate in all areas from content creation to distribution. A Mellanox EVF can accelerate non-linear editing (NLE), distribution, live broadcasting, content distribution and post production alike. Our IP-based hardware and software solutions can address the high bandwidth requirement derived from the adoption of 4K and 8K UHD video formats.
