Mellanox High-Performance Computing

The #1 Supercomputers Depend on Mellanox HPC Solutions

The need to analyze growing amounts of data, to support complex simulations, to overcome performance bottlenecks and to create intelligent data algorithms requires the ability to manage and carry out computational operations on the data as it is being transferred by the data center interconnect. Mellanox InfiniBand solutions incorporate In-Network Computing technology that performs data algorithms within the network devices, delivering ten times higher performance, and enabling the era of “data-centric” data centers. By delivering the fastest data speed, lowest latency, smart accelerations and highest efficiency and resiliency, InfiniBand is the best choice to connect the world’s top HPC and artificial intelligence supercomputers.

In-Network Computing

Essential for high-performance computing, artificial intelligence, and big data, Mellanox InfiniBand is the clear leader that introduces capabilities into the network that are specifically designed to achieve maximum performance. With In-network computing capabilities, such as SHARP™ actually transforms the network into a powerful compute resource which can process data as it traverses the network. A wide range of native hardware-based offloads including MPI tag-matching and rendezvous protocol offloads, GPUDirect RDMA and NVMEoF are just a few examples of advanced technologies that are readily employed by Mellanox InfiniBand. Network reliability with Mellanox SHIELD™ improves resiliency by speeding up fault recovery by 5000 times and enables autonomous self-healing capabilities.
