HDR 200G InfiniBand Sets New Performance Records, Accelerating Multiple High-Performance Computing and Artificial Intelligence Platforms Around the World

More Than Twenty of the World’s Largest, High-Speed, Smart Modular
Switch Systems Are Being Delivered to Leading Data Centers in The First
Quarter of 2019, Demonstrating the Growing Demand for 200G InfiniBand
Across Many Application Domains

SUNNYVALE, Calif. & YOKNEAM, Israel–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/Mellanox?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#Mellanoxlt;/agt;–Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX), a leading supplier of
high-performance, end-to-end smart interconnect solutions for data
center servers and storage systems, today announced that its 200 Gigabit
HDR InfiniBand technology and solutions have set new performance
records, delivering leading efficiency and scalability to
high-performance computing, artificial intelligence, cloud, storage and
other data intensive applications. HDR InfiniBand shipments began in the
fourth quarter of 2018 connecting more than ten thousand end-points. In
the first quarter of 2019, HDR InfiniBand will connect multiple
tens-of-thousand compute and storage end-points in supercomputing,
hyperscale and cloud datacenters around the globe. Furthermore, during
the first quarter of 2019, more than twenty of the world’s largest
high-speed smart modular switch systems are being delivered to multiple
data centers, demonstrating the growing demand for the fastest
InfiniBand solutions across many application domains.

“The innovations built into our 200G HDR InfiniBand solutions, the
performance advantages and the in-network computing acceleration
engines, make HDR InfiniBand the interconnect-of-choice for the world’s
leading compute and storage infrastructures. We began shipping it to
multiple customers in 2018, and we continue to see strong momentum for
HDR InfiniBand across all geographies,” said Amir Prescher, senior vice
president, end-user sales and business development at Mellanox
Technologies. “The world-wide strategic race to Exascale supercomputing,
the exponential growth in data we collect and need to analyze, and the
new performance levels needed to support new scientific investigations
and innovative product designs, all require the fastest and most
advanced HDR InfiniBand interconnect technology. HDR InfiniBand
solutions enable breakthrough performance levels and deliver the highest
return on investment, enabling the next generation of the world’s
leading supercomputers, hyperscale, Artificial Intelligence, cloud and
enterprise datacenters.”

The HDR InfiniBand Quantum CS8500 Modular Switch system provides 800
ports of 200 gigabit per second data throughput per direction (or 400
gigabit of full bi-directional data throughput), or 1600 ports of 100
gigabit per second data throughout per direction (or 200 gigabit of full
bi-directional data throughput) switching capacity, making it the
world’s fastest high-speed smart switch system. Quantum CS8500 enables a
total of 320 terabit per second switching capacity, 1.4 to 2.5 times
higher compared to alternative products –equivalent to sending the
content of 800 Ultra Definition Blu-Ray discs every second.

The HDR 200G InfiniBand in-network computing acceleration engines,
including the Mellanox Scalable Hierarchical Aggregation and Reduction
Protocol (SHARP™), and other Message Passing Interface (MPI) offloads,
provide the highest performance and scalability. For High-Performance
Computing (HPC) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications, Mellanox
SHARP improves the data aggregation operations by 3 times compared to
CPU-based implementations, resulting in accelerating scientific
simulations, data analysis and AI deep learning training applications.

The HDR InfiniBand adapters deliver the highest throughput and message
rate in the industry, demonstrating the ability to send 215 million
messages per second into the network, 1.5 times better compared to EDR
InfiniBand.

The higher switch density of the HDR InfiniBand Quantum™ switch enables
Mellanox users to optimize their use of space and power, and to maximize
their data center return-on-investment. For departmental-scale
implementations, a single Quantum QM8700 switch connects 80 servers
reflecting 1.7 times higher than competitive products. For
enterprise-scale, a 2-layer Quantum switch topology connects 3200
servers which is 2.8 times higher than competitive products. For
hyperscale, a 3-layer Quantum switch topology connects 128,000 servers,
or 4.6 times higher than competitive products.

Mellanox HDR InfiniBand end-to-end solution, including ConnectX-6
adapters, Quantum switches, the upcoming HDR BlueField system-on-a-chip
(SoC), and LinkX cables and transceivers, delivers the best performance
and scalability for HPC, cloud, artificial intelligence, storage, and
other applications, providing users with the capabilities to enhance
their research, discoveries and product development. The HDR BlueField™
SoC will provide an optimized NVMe storage performance, enhanced
security capabilities and the ability to offload user-defined algorithms
from the main CPU to the network, resulting in lower latency and higher
data-center efficiency. Mellanox InfiniBand solutions supports all
compute architectures, with guaranteed backward and forward
compatibility. For more information about the HDR InfiniBand products
