Mellanox HPC-X™ Overview

Mellanox HPC-X™ provides various acceleration packages to improve both the performance and scalability of popular MPI and SHMEM/PGAS libraries. These packages, including MXM (Mellanox Messaging) which accelerates the underlying send/receive (or put/get) messages, and FCA (Fabric Collectives Accelerations) that accelerates the underlying collective operations used by the MPI/PGAS languages. This full-featured, tested and packaged version of HPC software enables MPI, SHMEM and PGAS programming languages to scale to extremely large clusters by improving on memory and latency related efficiencies, and to assure that the communication libraries are fully optimized of the Mellanox interconnect solutions.

The FCA and MXM software packages are also readily integrated into popular commercial and open-source MPI languages including OpenSHMEM / PGAS and the Berkeley UPC programming languages.

Mellanox OFED (MLNX_OFED) is a Mellanox tested and packaged version of the OpenFabrics Enterprise Distribution (OFED™) and supports RDMA (remote DMA) and kernel bypass APIs called OFED verbs over InfiniBand and Ethernet.

Mellanox OFED and HPC-X™ allow OEM's and System Integrators to meet the needs of their end-users by deploying the latest available software that takes advantage of the features and capabilities available in the most recent hardware and firmware changes.
