Mellanox InfiniBand Host Channel Adapters (HCA)

Mellanox InfiniBand Host Channel Adapters (HCAs) provide the highest performing interconnect solution for Enterprise Data Centers, Web 2.0, Cloud Computing, High-Performance Computing, and embedded environments. Clustered data bases, parallelized applications, transactional services and high-performance embedded I/O applications will achieve significant performance improvements resulting in reduced completion time and lower cost per operation.

World-Class Performance

Mellanox InfiniBand adapters deliver industry-leading bandwidth with ultra low-latency and efficient computing for performance-driven server and storage clustering applications. Network protocol processing and data movement overhead such as RDMA and Send/Receive semantics are completed in the adapter without CPU intervention. Application acceleration with CORE-Direct™ and GPU communication acceleration brings further levels of performance improvement. Mellanox InfiniBand adapters' advanced acceleration technology enables higher cluster efficiency and large scalability to tens-of-thousands of nodes.

Virtual Protocol Interconnect® (VPI)

VPI flexibility enables any standard networking, clustering, storage, and management protocol to seamlessly operate over any converged network leveraging a consolidated software stack. Each port can operate on InfiniBand, Ethernet, or Data Center Bridging (DCB) fabrics, and supports Ethernet over InfiniBand (EoIB) and Fibre Channel over InfiniBand (FCoIB) as well as Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE). VPI simplifies I/O system design and makes it easier for IT managers to deploy infrastructure that meets the challenges of a dynamic data center.
