Mellanox introduces the world's first 100Gb/s EDR InfiniBand switch

23 Jun 2014 Leipzig - Mellanox Technologies Ltd., a supplier of high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data centre servers and storage systems, has launched Switch-IB, the next generation of its InfiniBand switch IC optimized for HPC, Web 2.0, database and Cloud data centres, and the first-ever switch IC capable of 100Gb/s per port speeds. Switch-IB is the world's fastest switch with 36-ports of 100Gb/s to provide 7.2Tb/s of switching capacity - 250 percent higher than the nearest alternative - with industry-low 130ns of latency and power consumption. Switch-IB is also the first to introduce router capabilities that enable full isolation and scalability to meet tomorrow's needs of hundreds-of-thousand node clusters and beyond.

With the exponential growth of data being generated around the world and the increase of applications that can take advantage of real-time massive data processing for high performance, data analytics, business intelligence, national security and 'Internet of Things' applications, the market demands faster and more efficient interconnect solutions.

Switch-IB enables application managers to use the power of data. It integrates 144 SerDes which can operate at 1Gb/s to 25Gb/s speeds per lane and delivers 5.4 billion packets per second, making Switch-IB the best solution for high-performance computing, Cloud, Web 2.0, database and storage centres. Switch-IB enables these centres to deliver high application performance, to become more efficient, and to reduce their expenses.

"The amount of global digital information created grew 6X over the last five years to nearly 6 Zettabytes in 2014", stated Gilad Shainer, vice president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies. "Mellanox's fast interconnect technology is a full generation ahead of the competition in terms of performance and return-on-investment advantages it brings to IT and applications managers."

"Seconds matter when you're waiting for results", stated Scott Misage, general manager, high performance computing, HP. "HP's new Apollo family of products will not only support Mellanox's new IC capable 100Gb/s switch but deliver up to four times the performance throughput and reduce both latency and power consumption."

"The phenomenon of Big Data can induce a significant increase in latency in application work flows, creating a ceiling on application efficiency and lengthening time to solution", stated David Turek, vice president of advanced computing, IBM. "Any tools that target latency reduction will be of considerable utility in the evolution of forthcoming hardware designs."

In addition to its high performance, Switch-IB also enables IT managers to program and centralize their server and storage interconnect management to dramatically reduce their operational expenses. This process allows the removal of congestion and bottlenecks on the network.
