Oracle and Mellanox to collaborate on high speed Cloud networking standards

20 Jun 2016 Frankfurt - Oracle and Mellanox have signed a partnership to drive interoperability between their products and to jointly develop further industry standards for InfiniBand - a high speed Cloud networking technology. Products supporting the InfiniBand standard not only provide extreme bandwidth and ultra-low latency for fast, agile, and secure Cloud infrastructure, but they are also based upon industry standards and available from multiple vendors. Oracle and Mellanox Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) 100G InfiniBand products are engineered to the InfiniBand Architecture Specification Release 1.3 and allow customers to deploy a 100Gb/s fabric that is backwards compatible with the previous generations of InfiniBand-based systems (FDR, QDR, DDR, and SDR), enabling customers to protect their investments in InfiniBand-enabled applications.

Oracle's core strategy is to enable its Cloud solutions and Engineered Systems with open technologies that deliver the highest performance, efficiency, and security. Due to its superior performance, efficiency, and scalability, InfiniBand is a dominant fabric for building supercomputers, which rapidly process massive amounts of data. Oracle has chosen InfiniBand as the foundational technology for Engineered Systems to provide unparalleled performance and scale to Oracle's suite of business critical applications.

"Customers using InfiniBand as the interconnect for clouds and high performance computing can be certain that as new speeds and features are incorporated into the InfiniBand architecture that they will be able to continue to work with the supplier of their choice and that new products will seamlessly integrate with their existing InfiniBand infrastructures", stated Raju Penumatcha, senior vice president, Netra and Networking, Oracle. "This continued partnership represents an enduring commitment to provide customers with the technologies and standards needed for true enterprise-class Cloud infrastructures that enable them to accelerate application performance and quickly respond to changing business needs."

"With a standards-based architecture, and the most advanced roadmap that is guided by the InfiniBand Trade Association, and a mature, open source software stack, InfiniBand offers customers the best of performance and interoperability with the support of a large community of suppliers, developers, and users", stated Gilad Shainer, vice president, marketing at Mellanox Technologies. "This partnership enables us to continue to optimize and expand InfiniBand's role as a key technology for any Cloud environment."

Oracle EDR InfiniBand Fabric is on display at ISC High Performance at booth 910. Mellanox EDR InfiniBand solutions are on display at booth 905.
