Mellanox Demonstrates World’s First InfiniBand Connectivity with NVIDIA Tegra ARM Processor

Demonstration showcases Tegra-based platforms interconnected by the leading Mellanox FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand solution

ISC’13, Leipzig, Germany – June 17, 2013 – Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX; TASE: MLNX), a leading supplier of high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data center servers and storage systems, today announced it will showcase the world’s first technology demonstration of ConnectX®-3 FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand solutions running on the SECO® ARM® development platform featuring NVIDIA® Tegra® processors. The SECO development platform is powered by an NVIDIA Tegra quad-core ARM processor. The RISC-based ARM architecture is advancing far beyond today’s billions of client devices, and is rapidly moving towards the mainstream technical computing and high performance computing (HPC) market segments.

Together with NVIDIA, Mellanox will demo the ARM architecture with InfiniBand at the Mellanox exhibit booth #326 during the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) in Leipzig, Germany from June 17-20.

“This particular technology demonstration represents a significant development milestone for adoption of Mellanox’s InfiniBand solutions in new CPU platforms such as NVIDIA Tegra-based ARM platforms,” said Gilad Shainer, vice president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies.  “As future generations of 64-bit ARM solutions come on-line, applications will continue to demand ultra-low latency communications and scalability that only Mellanox InfiniBand can provide.”

“Mellanox and NVIDIA are working together to bring all the benefits of a modern HPC network to ARM-based platforms,” said Ian Buck, general manager of GPU Computing Software at NVIDIA. “This technology demo, coupled with support for ARM platforms in the latest release of the CUDA parallel programming toolkit, provides the foundation for developers to build out the ARM HPC application ecosystem.”

“The R&D work performed by Mellanox that enabled SECO to integrate InfiniBand technology on its NVIDIA Tegra based development kit allowed the ARM+ GPU architecture to be implemented in real HPC clusters, i.e. BSC's Pedraforca which was presented this year at ISC by E4 Computer Engineering®,” said Alessandro Santini, HPC sales, at SECO.

Live demonstration during ISC’13 (June 17-19, 2013)
