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 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.
The Mellanox® Solution
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.
