ISC 2016 Recap

27856044135_14deb4df3f_o

Last week we participated at the International Supercomputing conference – ISC’16. In reality, the event started the weekend before, kicked off by the HP-CAST conference where Mellanox presented to the entire HP-CAST audience our newest smart interconnect solutions; solutions that enable the highest application performance and best cost-performance compute and storage infrastructures. At ISC’16 we […]

Mellanox Introduces Most Advanced InfiniBand and Ethernet Intelligent Adapter Yet

ConnectX-5-pr-graphic-featured

Last year, IDC predicted that the HPC market would reach $15.2 billion by 2019. That represents a healthy 8.2 percent yearly growth rate. We knew it would be big, and we knew we would be ready for it. In fact, we’ve spent the past decade striving to take high performance computing (HPC) to new levels. […]

10/40GbE Architecture Efficiency Maxed-Out? It’s Time to Deploy 25/50/100GbE

In 2014, after the IEEE rejected the idea of standardizing 25GbE and 50GbE over one lane and two lanes respectively. It was then that a group of technology leaders (including Mellanox, Google, Microsoft, Broadcom, and Arista) formed the 25Gb Ethernet consortium in order to create an industry standard for defining interoperable solutions. The Consortium has […]

In the past, one port of 10GbE was enough to support the bandwidth need of 4K DPX, three ports could drive 8K formats and four ports could drive 4K-Full EXR.  However, the recent evolution in the media and entertainment industry that has been presented this week at the NAB Show showcases the need for higher resolution.  […]

How Scale-Out Systems Affect Amdahl’s Law

In 1967, Gene Amdahl developed a formula that calculates the overall efficiency of a computer system by analyzing how much of the processing can be parallelized and the amount of parallelization that can be applied in the specific system. At that time, deeper performance analysis had to take into consideration the efficiency of three main […]

RDMA – Cloud providers “secret sauce”

Written By: Eli Karpilovski, Manager, Cloud Market Development   With expansive growth expected in the cloud-computing market, some researches expects the market will grow from $70.1 billion in 2012 to $158.8 billion in 2014 – cloud service providers must find ways to provide increasingly sustainable performance. At the same time, they must accommodate an increasing […]

RDMA Interconnects for Storage: Fast, Efficient Data Delivery

Written By: Erin Filliater, Enterprise Market Development Manager We all know that we live in a world of data, data and more data. In fact, IDC predicts that in 2015, the amount of data created and replicated will reach nearly 8 Zettabytes. With all of this data stored in external storage systems, the way data […]
