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.

The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound e...
Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessio...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
While the focus and objectives of IoT initiatives are many and diverse, they all share a few common attributes, and one of those is the network. Commonly, that network includes the Internet, over which there isn't any real control for performance and availability. Or is there? The current state of the art for Big Data analytics, as applied to network telemetry, offers new opportunities for improving and assuring operational integrity. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Frey, Vice President of S...
