Mellanox 10/25/40/50/56/100GbE Converged Network Adapters
Mellanox continues its leadership in providing high-performance networking technologies by delivering superior utilization and scaling in ConnectX®-5 EN 10/40/56/100GbE Adapters, enabling data centers to do more with less.
Mellanox ConnectX®-5 Single/Dual-Port Adapters supporting 100Gb/s
Intelligent ConnectX-5 EN adapter cards introduce new acceleration engines for maximizing High Performance, Web 2.0, Cloud, Data Analytics and Storage platforms.
ConnectX-5 supports two ports of 100Gb/s Ethernet connectivity, sub-700 nanosecond latency, and very high message rate, plus PCIe switch and NVMe over Fabric offloads, providing the highest performance and most flexible solution for the most demanding applications and markets.
Mellanox ConnectX®-4 Single/Dual-Port Adapters supporting 100Gb/s
Mellanox Ethernet adapters utilizing IBTA RoCE technology provide efficient RDMA services, delivering high performance to bandwidth and latency sensitive applications. With link-level interoperability in existing Ethernet infrastructure, Network Administrators can leverage existing data center fabric management solutions.
Applications utilizing TCP/UDP/IP transport can achieve industry-leading throughput over 10/40/56GbE. The hardware-based stateless offload and flow steering engines in Mellanox adapters reduce the CPU overhead of IP packet transport, freeing more processor cycles to work on the application. Sockets acceleration software further increases performance for latency sensitive applications.
Mellanox Ethernet adapters utilizing Virtual Intelligent Queuing (Virtual-IQ) technology with SR-IOV provides dedicated adapter resources and guaranteed isolation and protection for virtual machines (VM) within the server. Mellanox adapters gives data center managers better server utilization and LAN and SAN unification while reducing cost, power, and cable complexity.
Quality of Service
All Mellanox adapters are supported by a full suite of software drivers for Microsoft Windows, Linux distributions, VMware and Citrix XenServer. The adapters support stateless offload and is fully interoperable with standard TCP/UDP/IP stacks. The adapters support various management interfaces and has a rich set of configuring and management tools across operating systems.
