14 Nov 2016 Salt Lake City - InfiniBand solutions were chosen in nearly four times more end-user projects in 2016 versus Omni-Path and five times more end-user projects versus other proprietary offerings as shown in the November release of the TOP500 list. This demonstrates an increase in both InfiniBand usage and market share. InfiniBand accelerates 65 percent of the total HPC systems on the list and 46 percent of the Petaflop infrastructures. Mellanox continues to connect the fastest supercomputer on the list, delivering highest scalability, performance and efficiency. Mellanox Ethernet solutions connect all of the 40 Gigabit Ethernet systems and the first 100 Gigabit Ethernet system.
"InfiniBand's advantages of highest performance, scalability and robustness enable users to maximize their data centre return on investment. InfiniBand was chosen by far more end-users compared to a proprietary offering, resulting in a more than 85 percent market share. We are happy to see our open Ethernet adapter and switch solutions enable all of the 40G and the first 100G Ethernet systems on the TOP500 list, resulting in overall 194 systems using Mellanox for their compute and storage connectivity", stated Eyal Waldman, president and CEO of Mellanox Technologies. "The growing demand for data speeds and real-time data analytics requires interconnect solutions that deliver high data speeds, and smart offloading engines. We are proud to announce the 200Gb/s HDR InfiniBand solutions that will further the performance advantage of the Mellanox solutions, paving the road to Exascale. With the 200Gb/s HDR solutions, Mellanox will continue to enable faster and more efficient high-performance computing, Cloud, Web2.0, database, deep learning and storage platforms."
Published twice a year and publicly available at www.top500.org, the TOP500 list ranks the world's most powerful computer systems according to the Linpack benchmark rating system. Key takeaways from the list include:
