High-performance computing encompasses advanced computation over parallel processing, enabling faster execution of highly compute intensive tasks such as climate research, molecular modeling, physical simulations, cryptanalysis, geophysical modeling, automotive and aerospace design, financial modeling, data mining and more. High-performance simulations require the most efficient compute platforms. The execution time of a given simulation depends upon many factors, such as the number of CPU/GPU cores and their utilization factor and the interconnect performance, efficiency, and scalability. Efficient high-performance computing systems require high-bandwidth, low-latency connections between thousands of multi-processor nodes, as well as high-speed storage systems.
Mellanox’s networking solutions based on InfiniBand, Ethernet, or RoCE (RDMA over Converged Ethernet) provide the best price, performance, and power value proposition for network and storage I/O processing capabilities up to 56GbE/s.

Web 2.0 is defined as providing Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) to users for their personal and professional use. The current Web 2.0 infrastructure is built using commodity hardware which keeps datacentre costs low with scalability for the future. These trends have existed in the HPC industry for a long time already, but the recent emergence of massive network access devices has led to a new services-oriented infrastructure which requires reliable networking infrastructure. A lower latency and higher throughput network infrastructure enables datacentres to increase their hardware utilization and to scale up to massive capacities in an instant without having to worry about bottlenecks and bad user experiences. Web 2.0 represents a new tipping point for the value of network computing.
Big Data analytics used to be the exclusive domain of big enterprises. Now, leveraging parallel processing technologies, the challenge of quick analysis of massive data that streamed-in from different sources at a very high speed is going mainstream. Parallel processing architecture breaks a big data analytics job into smaller jobs and runs it over tens, hundreds, or thousands of commodity servers, which keeps datacentre costs low and provides easy scalability. These trends have existed in the HPC industry for a long time already, but the recent emergence of massive network access devices has led to a new services-oriented infrastructure that requires a reliable high-performance networking infrastructure. A lower latency and higher throughput network infrastructure enables datacentres to increase their hardware utilization and to scale up to massive capacities in an instant without having to worry about bottlenecks and bad user experiences.
Mellanox CloudX™ is a group of reference architectures that allows companies to build the most efficient, high performance and scalable clouds based on Mellanox's superior interconnect and off-the-shelf building blocks (servers, storage, interconnect, and software).
It incorporates virtualization with high-bandwidth and low-latency interconnect solutions while significantly reducing datacentre costs, providing the fastest data transfer and most effective hardware utilization.
As new, faster storage technologies have evolved, the storage bottleneck has moved from the storage media to the I/O interconnect. While interconnect technologies have sped up considerably, they commonly remain the limiting factor in increasing the performance of many datacentres. Critical to removing this bottleneck is a new way of looking at storage interconnects. Speed counts, but the path data takes though the interconnect can drastically change the performance of a datacentre.
Financial and Trading
IT departments in financial capital markets are facing huge growth in the volume of market data, while they are also under pressure to improve trade execution times. In these environments, one extra millisecond of trade execution latency can mean as much as $100 million in lost trades per year. As these datacentres move to multi-core, multi-processor servers and high-speed storage systems, IT managers should make sure that the connections among servers and between servers and storage are not creating a bottleneck that impedes optimum trade execution performance.
The demand for more computing power, efficiency and scalability is constantly accelerating in the HPC, database, cloud computing and Web 2.0 markets. To address these demands Mellanox provides complete end-to-end interconnect solutions (silicon, adapter cards, switch systems, cables and software) supporting InfiniBand and Ethernet technologies.
InfiniBand has emerged as an ideal solution for many embedded applications such as high-speed I/O links, reliable backplanes, and scalable switch fabrics. With reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) built into the architecture, InfiniBand's superior capabilities are enabling outstanding functionality in non-traditional systems.
Embedded applications are those systems that keep the interconnect captive; that is, the system manufacturer defines the limits of the system and its path for growth (if any). The end customer only sees a monolithic system. Interconnects for embedded applications require efficient CPU utilization, low latency, ease of implementation, and low cost to ensure that they don't overshadow the value of the larger system.
The need for complex simulations and research in high performance computing and the virtualized enterprise datacentre mandates the usage of a high throughput and low latency I/O solution.
Mellanox's InfiniBand and Ethernet adapters are world-leading, industry-standard interconnect solutions that provides the required bandwidth, latency, low power consumption and CPU utilization characteristics for maximizing compute systems productivity, efficiency and scalability.
