Mellanox expands availability of InfiniBand and Ethernet solutions with NEC LX Series Supercomputer through NEC HPC Europe

20 Jun 2011 Hamburg - Mellanox's line of industry and performance-leading InfiniBand and Ethernet connectivity solutions with NEC LX Series Supercomputers are available through NEC HPC Europe. The move enables NEC to address the growing demand for Mellanox's end-to-end connectivity products and advanced technology from leading European HPC centres, Cloud computing providers and enterprise customers.

"HPC customers across Europe are investing in new server and storage technologies such as GPU computing and integrating multi-core CPUs that require scalable and efficient, high-performance connectivity products", stated Dr. Andreas Findling, Senior Product Line Manager, at HPC Europe in NEC Deutschland. "Together, NEC and Mellanox provide their European customers a solution which is focused on sustained performance computing by carefully optimizing the interaction of highest performing end-to-end networking with the entire software layer up to the world's most compute-demanding applications."

"We see increasing Web 2.0, high-performance and Cloud computing center opportunities in Europe, including in existing data centers across the region that are rapidly expanding to meet the growing demand for advanced HPC capabilities", stated Yossi Avni, vice president of EMEA sales at Mellanox Technologies. "We believe this growth in Europe provides a significant opportunity for Mellanox, and we are pleased to have NEC HPC Europe adopt our end-to-end connectivity solutions into their product portfolio."

Mellanox's end-to-end FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand and 10/40GbE connectivity solutions, consisting of the ConnectX-3 line of I/O adapter products, cables and comprehensive SwitchX family of fixed and modular switches, management and acceleration software and cables, deliver industry-leading performance, efficiency, and scalability for the best return-on-investment for performance interconnects.

NEC's LX Series with its products LX-2200, LX-2400 and LX-4000 offer tailored HPC solutions with focus on sustained performance computing. Optimizing components like the InfiniBand network, NEC MPI/LX, LX C3 and LXFS and optimized component interaction achieve outstanding performance for production load.
