Messaging Accelerator (VMA)
Dramatically improves performance of socket based applications
Mellanox's Messaging Accelerator (VMA) boosts performance for message-based and streaming applications such as those found in financial services market data environments and Web2.0 clusters. The result is a reduction in latency by as much as 300% and an increase in application throughput by as much as 200% per server as compared to applications running on standard Ethernet or InfiniBand interconnect networks.
This solution lowers latency and increases transactions per second for a wide-array of applications including medical online Web Services, imaging, radar and other data acquisition systems. VMA Open Source can improve performance of any application that makes heavy use of Multicast, UDP unicast and TCP streaming and requires high packet-per-second rates, low data distribution latency, low CPU utilization or increased application scalability.
VMA Open Source is made available under a dual license: GPLv2 and commercial. The software can be downloaded for free from Google Code at https://libvma.googlecode.com/.
