ConnectX®-3 Single/Dual-Port Adapter with VPI

Overview

ConnectX-3 adapter cards with Virtual Protocol Interconnect (VPI) supporting InfiniBand and Ethernet connectivity provide the highest performing and most flexible interconnect solution for PCI Express Gen3 servers used in Enterprise Data Centers, High-Performance Computing, and Embedded environments. Clustered data bases, parallel processing, transactional services and high-performance embedded I/O applications will achieve significant performance improvements resulting in reduced completion time and lower cost per operation ConnectX-3 with VPI also simplifies system development by serving multiple fabrics with one hardware design.
