One Scalable Fabric for All:
Using InfiniBand as a Unified Cluster and Storage Fabric
A tsunami is sweeping over the data center – and bringing a deluge of exabyte-scale data with it. Rapid change is being driven by new sources of data streaming in from cloud computing, mobility, social media, Internet of Things (IoT) and big data/analytics. All of these new workloads must now co-exist with transactional processing, enterprise applications and data warehouses. For many IT professionals, these new demands are causing a “rethink” of their interconnect infrastructure. Fiber channel interconnects running at speeds of 2, 4, 8Gb and slower Ethernet links running at 1 and 10Gb are showing their age, and these aging links must be updated or replaced now that they have become “bottlenecks,” slowing down the business or organization they support.
Clearly, the tide is turning and this process of data center transformation requires thoughtful planning, IT organizations cannot afford to wait, or performance of mission-critical applications and databases will suffer. This is why Mellanox and IBM see InfiniBand as the unified cluster and storage fabric for increasingly complex workload patterns, and the growing volume and velocity of data.
Please join Dr. Gerald Lotto, Director HPC and Technical Computing at Mellanox Technologies, and our guest Steven Roberts, Lead HPC Architect from IBM, for this On-Demand webinar as they discuss using InfiniBand as a unified cluster and storage fabric. They will review the infrastructure challenges with the modern data center, InfiniBand’s advantages and how Mellanox products and solutions address these challenges with best-in-class server and storage connectivity.
In this webinar you will learn:
- Why InfiniBand is ideal as a unified cluster and storage fabric that will help realize accelerated performance and improved ROI.
- Why enterprise companies like IBM and Oracle are choosing to deploy a converged InfiniBand fabric for clustered databases and storage.
- How Mellanox products and solutions are uniquely designed to address the modern data center infrastructure challenges, delivering best-in-class and highest performance server and storage connectivity to various demanding markets and applications.
