Mellanox introduces ConnectX-3 10/40GbE adapters with multiple physical functions for VMware ESXi 5.0

29 Aug 2011 Las Vegas - Mellanox Technologies Ltd. has added Multiple Physical Function (MPF) capabilities to its ConnectX-3 10/40GbE adapters for VMware ESXi 5.0. This advanced capability further extends the value of ConnectX-3 in virtualized data centres and enables customers to achieve higher efficiency by running more jobs per second over their existing infrastructure.

MPF allows each port of the ConnectX-3 10/40GbE adapter to present itself as multiple, individual physical NICs and to assign different bandwidth and priority to each physical NIC for different traffic types or functionality such as management, storage, VMotion, networking, etc. With up to 4 virtual NICs per port, MPF delivers flexible allocation of bandwidth and eliminates the need to dedicate a real NIC for each traffic type. This capability reduces space, power and overall complexity by up to 4X, while maintaining a simplified management model and overall data centre reliability.

"With Cloud computing architectures emerging as the application delivery model for both large and small IT organisations, Cloud data centres must adopt technologies that are opti­mized for performance, efficiency, scalability and quality-of-service", stated John Monson, vice president of product marketing at Mellanox Technologies. "Deploying Mellanox ConnectX-3 10/40GbE adapters with Multiple Physical Functions in virtualized data centres removes I/O bottlenecks, increases flexibility and ease-of-use, maximizes the number of VMs per server and improves the cost-efficiency of the Cloud infrastructure."

Mellanox's ConnectX-3 10 and 40GbE adapter cards deliver best in class throughput and latency to boost application performance, efficiency and scalability while maintaining extremely low system power consumption. ConnectX-3 accelerates applications with support of low latency TCP, messaging acceleration and hardware-based RoCE (RDMA over Converged Ethernet), delivering efficient transport over Layer 2 Ethernet with RDMA latencies less than 1.3us.

ConnectX-3 EN 10/40GigE NIC with Multiple Physical Functions is currently available to selected customers for deployment and validation.
