Chinese leading weather research institute selected Mellanox InfiniBand, replacing OmniPath in an existing data centre
9 Apr 2018 Sunnyvale, Yokneam - A leading Chinese weather research institute has selected Mellanox EDR 100 gigabit InfiniBand solutions, replacing the proprietary OmniPath network in an existing data centre infrastructure. Rigid performance testing of the institute weather and climate forecasting applications demonstrated 1.9 times performance advantage with InfiniBand versus OmniPath. As a result, the institute has requested H3C, the server and storage OEM, to replace the previously installed OmniPath proprietary network with EDR InfiniBand. Utilizing the InfiniBand technology advantages and its smart data accelerations, the institute can dramatically improve their applications performance and maximize their data center return on investment.
