"The combination of Mellanox Ethernet and InfiniBand interconnect solutions and Qualcomm's leading ARM-based processors enables the generation of compute and storage data centres", stated Gilad Shainer, vice president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies. "The RDMA technology and the smart cloud, storage and machine learning offloads of ConnectX-5 maximize the Qualcomm CPU efficiency and overall applications' performance. We are excited to demonstrate the ARM server platforms with Qualcomm and their readiness for data center usage."
"Pairing our 10 nanometer server processor with Mellanox's industry-leading multi-host solution delivers flexible compute and modularity for the scaling needs of next-generation data centre infrastructure demands", stated Ram Peddibhotla, vice president of product management, Qualcomm Datacenter Technologies. "By featuring two world-class technologies, the Qualcomm Centriq 2400 processor and Mellanox ConnectX-5 interconnect, we are enabling innovative topologies and networked compute models that facilitate Cloud, high performance computing, telco and other market applications."
ConnectX-5 is the world's leading 10, 25, 40, 50, 56 and 100Gb/s InfiniBand and Ethernet intelligent adapter. Delivering message rates of up to 200 million messages per second, and latency as low as 0.7us, ConnectX-5 supports the most advanced offloads to accelerate high-performance computing and machine learning algorithms, virtualized infrastructures, and storage workloads. Together with native RDMA and RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE), ConnectX-5 dramatically improves storage and compute platform efficiency.
