Meteorological forecasting and research requires high-speed processing of massive data inputs, so productivity depends on processing speed. Data centers used in weather research use HPC cluster technology, combining the power of hundreds or thousands of CPUs with large, high-speed storage systems. To complete the performance equation, however, these data centers must be able to move data from server to server or server to storage at a speed that doesn’t create processing bottlenecks. Mellanox® InfiniBand products maximize data center performance and productivity by delivering industry-leading bandwidth and the lowest latency.
To reduce production lags, today’s media data centers invest in high-performance HPC cluster technology, combining the power of hundreds or thousands of CPUs in the service of a highly complex rendering task. But a critical part of the performance equation is the speed at which terabytes of data can be moved between servers and storage. Mellanox® InfiniBand products maximize data center performance and productivity by delivering industry-leading bandwidth and the lowest latency.
The Mellanox® Solution
In today’s multi-core, multi-processor servers, each server can require up to 1 gigabit of I/O performance to avoid processing delays. Mellanox I/O adapters, switches, and gateways delivering up to 56Gb/s of reliable, lossless connectivity with less than one microsecond of latency to eliminate data movement bottlenecks. Mellanox solutions support most of the world’s most powerful supercomputers, and they can bring the same high performance and reliability to weather data centers.
