Mfr Part #: 540-BBOJ
Clustered databases, parallel processing, transactional services and high-performance I/O applications will achieve significant performance improvements resulting in reduced completion time and lower cost per operation when using these Mellanox ConnectX-3 adapter cards.
- Perfect cluster, network, and storage performance
- Great bandwidth and low-latency services
- Virtualization acceleration
- I/O consolidation
- Scales to a large number of nodes
- CPU offload of transport operations
- Application offload
- End-to-end QoS and congestion control
- Hardware-based I/O virtualization
- Amazing power efficiency
ConnectX-3 delivers low latency, high bandwidth, and computing efficiency for performance-driven server and storage clustering applications. CORE-Direct brings the great level of performance improvement by offloading application overhead such as data broadcasting and gathering as well as global synchronization communication routines. ConnectX-3 advanced acceleration technology enables higher cluster efficiency and large scalability to a large number of nodes.
- Sockets acceleration
Applications utilizing TCP/UDP/IP transport can achieve great throughput over InfiniBand. The hardware-based stateless offload engines in ConnectX-3 reduce the CPU overhead of IP packet transport. Sockets acceleration software further increases performance for latency sensitive applications.
- I/O virtualization
ConnectX-3 with virtualization provides dedicated adapter resources and guaranteed isolation and protection for virtual machines within the server. I/O virtualization with ConnectX-3 gives data center managers better server utilization while reducing cost, power, and cable complexity.
- Accelerated storage
A consolidated compute and storage network achieves significant cost-performance advantages over multi-fabric networks. Standard block and file access protocols can leverage InfiniBand RDMA for high-performance storage access.
