Why Atlantic.Net Chose Mellanox
- Price and Cost Advantage
Expensive hardware, overhead costs while scaling, as well as administrative costs can be avoided with Mellanox’s interconnect technologies and thereby reduce costs 32% per application.
- Lower Latency and Faster Storage Access:
By utilizing the iSCSI RDMA Protocol (iSER) implemented in KVM servers over a single converged InfiniBand interconnect adapter, iSER delivers lower latency and is less complex, resulting in lower costs to the user.
- Consolidate I/O Transparently
LAN and SAN connectivity for VMs on KVM and Atlantic.Net’s management environment is tightly integrated; allowing Atlantic.Net to transparently consolidate LAN, SAN, live migrations and other traffic.
The Bottom Line
By deploying Mellanox’s InfiniBand solution, Atlantic.Net can support high volume and high-performance requirements– on-demand – and offer a service that scales as customers’ needs change and grow. Having built a high performance, reliable and redundant storage infrastructure using off-the-shelf commodity hardware, Atlantic.Net was able to avoid purchasing expensive Fibre Channel storage arrays, saving significant capital expenses per storage system.
