Mellanox Announces World’s Fastest Switch Systems

IS5000 switch system family delivers the highest networking bandwidth per port to enable the next generation of high-performance

Mellanox at Cloud Expo

Cloud Computing Expo - Mellanox Technologies announced the world’s first 120Gb/s per port InfiniBand switch systems, delivering industry-leading throughput, performance, efficiency, and the lowest latency.

Based on InfiniScale IV, Mellanox’s 4th generation of InfiniBand switch silicon, the new members of the IS5000 switch system family deliver the highest networking bandwidth per port to enable the next generation of high-performance computing, cloud infrastructures and enterprise data centers.

The new switch solutions reduce network congestion and the number of network cables by a factor of three to provide customers with the optimal combination of cost-effective, proven performance and efficiency enhancements to address next-generation, Petascale computing demands.

“As supercomputers scale, new challenges are created in performance and cabling,” said John Monson, vice president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies. “Mellanox’s new comprehensive family of 120Gb/s switch solutions deliver the performance, density and scalability for large-scale clusters, and provide researchers with essential building blocks for constructing the next generation of Petascale-class clusters.”

Mellanox IS5000 family of switch systems, consisting of un-managed and managed edge switches and director-class modular switches, provide industry-leading 51.8 Tb/s of non-blocking bandwidth in a single enclosure. FabricIT™ fabric management software reduces management overhead by providing the essential capabilities for managing systems at scale with simplicity and flexibility.

IT managers can optimize data center performance and efficiency with FabricIT’s performance monitoring, granular Quality of Service, and dynamic adaptation of the network to meet application demands in real-time. By enabling IT managers to adapt networking settings by application demands in real time, the IS5000 products deliver maximum systems productivity and efficiency for any usage model and for any scale.  

Mellanox’s IS5000 family of 120Gb/s InfiniBand switch systems will be available in the first half of 2010. Pricing is available upon request. For more information please visit www.mellanox.com/is5000.

Visit Mellanox Technologies during SC09, booth#1301, to see a live 120Gb/s networking demonstration featuring Mellanox’s family of IS5000 switch systems. With collaboration from the HPC Advisory Council (www.hpcadvisorycouncil.com), the 120Gb/s demonstration will connect 23 exhibitors on the SC09 showroom floor to create a visualization cluster that will enable a real-time 3D navigation of full-scale automotive CAD models.

Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...

Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
