Bull Selects Mellanox EDR 100Gb/s InfiniBand Technology for Next Generation Blade System

HPC, Cloud and Big Data Blade System Utilizes Industry-Leading Interconnect to Provide High-Performance, Low Latency Solution That Reduces Operational Costs

ISC High Performance 2015, Frankfurt, Germany – July 13, 2015 – Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX), a leading supplier of high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data center servers and storage systems, today announced that Bull, the Atos brand dedicated to its technology products and software, utilizes Mellanox’s EDR 100Gb/s InfiniBand for its bullx B700 Direct Liquid Cooling (DLC) blade system.

“Organizations require more and more performance as their data sets grow; however, adding more blades and racks traditionally means adding more operational expense, making scaling cumbersome and costly,” said Pascal Barbolosi, vice president/head of extreme computing, Atos Big Data & Security. “Our bullx B700 DLC with Mellanox EDR 100Gb/s InfiniBand technology ensures that tremendous performance levels are achieved while reducing energy consumption by up to one third of other offerings, enabling sustainable data center growth as computing requirements increase.”

The bullx B700 DLC blade system is designed for demanding, high-throughput data center workloads, including HPC, cloud and big data applications. Leveraging a revolutionary direct liquid cooling system, Mellanox’s ConnectX-4 EDR 100Gb/s InfiniBand LOM design and Mellanox EDR 100Gb/s InfiniBand blade switch, the bullx B700 delivers high-performance, low latency, improved system efficiency and application offloads.

“Previously, architecting a large-scale, high-performance data center that can handle more data and provide real-time insights was out of reach for many organizations due to dramatically increasing operational expenses,” said Gilad Shainer, vice president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies. “Mellanox’s EDR 100Gb/s InfiniBand solutions complement Bull’s unique direct liquid cooling approach by enabling far more throughput to be packed into a smaller footprint allowing for higher efficiencies.”

Bull will demonstrate the capabilities of the bullx B700 DLC blade system at ISC High Performance, July 12 – 16 in booth #1230 at the Messe Frankfurt in Frankfurt, Germany.
