Empower Security with Mellanox Next Generation Solutions
It’s almost impossible to eliminate all vulnerabilities from the system. It’s even harder to guarantee that a cyber criminal won’t exploit a vulnerability, attack your servers, and persist, lurking in your data center. The first line of defense is to defend against attacks. The second line of defense is to detect and quarantine any persisting threats. The third line of defense is protecting the sensitive assets. Mellanox implements secure boot and secure firmware update in Connect6-Dx and BlueField-2 to prevent an attacker from infiltrating and hiding within the adapter.
They filter packets in support of next generation firewalls and intrusion detection/prevention systems. In addition, they offload the cryptographic operations to secure data while freeing the host CPU to perform critical functions, all while keeping the cryptographic keys secure from a potentially exploited host. Mellanox products are aimed at accelerating security in your datacenter, make sure that you have all bases covered and accelerated with our secured solutions.
ConnectX®-6 Dx Dual 100GbE / Single 200GbE SmartNIC
As the world’s most advanced cloud SmartNIC, ConnectX-6 Dx provides up to two ports of 25, 50 or 100Gb/s, or a single port of 200Gb/s Ethernet connectivity, powered by 50Gb/s PAM4 SerDes technology and PCIe 4.0 host connectivity. ConnectX-6 Dx continues along Mellanox’s innovation path in scalable cloud fabrics, delivering unparalleled performance and efficiency at every scale. ConnectX-6 Dx’s innovative hardware offload engines, including IPsec and TLS inline data-in-motion encryption, are ideal for enabling secure network connectivity in modern data-center environments.
ConnectX-6 Dx’s extensive SmartNIC portfolio offers cards in several form factors, feeds and speeds, including low-profile PCIe, OCP 2.0 and OCP 3.0-compliant cards with advanced options for Mellanox Multi-Host® and Mellanox Socket Direct® configurations, enabling customers to choose the best fit for their needs.
BlueField®-2 IPU-based Programmable SmartNIC
The Mellanox BlueField-2 I/O Processing Unit (IPU) is the IC at the heart of software programmable SmartNICs. The 200Gb/s BlueField-2 IC integrates into one chip – a 64-bit Arm® multicore processor array combined with Mellanox ConnectX®-6 Dx advanced networking and security offloads – to accelerate a multitude of security, networking and storage applications. High-performance and software-programmable networking capabilities enable the IC to customize and optimize both control plane and data path operations.
BlueField-2 SmartNIC delivers isolation, hardware root-of-trust and IPsec and TLS cryptography accelerations, thus, enabling data center security at the endpoint with best-in-class performance, turning zero-trust to hero-trust.
BlueField-2 SmartNIC in bare metal deployments enables cloud providers to provision servers while retaining the ability to control them and deploy policy rules in an isolated and secured manner, totally transparent to the tenant. Moreover, Mellanox NVMe SNAP™ which logically presents networked storage as a local NVMe drive on the PCIe bus is bringing virtualized storage to bare metal clouds, making composable storage simple, while promoting CAPEX and OPEX savings.
Mellanox provides a series of tools to properly configure a cluster based on your choice of interconnect (InfiniBand or Ethernet).
