Mellanox Technologies (NASDAQ: MLNX) is a leading supplier of end-to-end Ethernet and InfiniBand intelligent interconnect solutions and services for servers, storage, and hyper-converged infrastructure. Mellanox intelligent interconnect solutions increase data center efficiency by providing the highest throughput and lowest latency, delivering data faster to applications and unlocking system performance.
LinkX Silicon Photonics—At Advanced HPC, we’re innovative in everything we do, and our OEM partners embrace the same spirit. No other company makes silicon like Mellanox. Silicon Photonics is a new technology for building advanced optical transceivers and VOAs (variable optical attenuators) at a low cost and in very high unit volumes to meet the demands of today’s hyperscale and high-performance supercomputer-based data centers. By exploiting CMOS (complementary metal-oxide semiconductor) manufacturing, Silicon Photonics integrates optical elements into silicon wafers using the same tools and manufacturing processes used for building CMOS ICs (integrated circuits). This eliminates most of the costly and difficult sub-micron alignments between transceiver elements.
Designed entirely by Mellanox, Silicon Photonics’ 100 Gbps single-mode 1550 nanometer (nm) transceivers and Mellanox-designed SiGe (silicon germanium) ASIC’s (application-specific integrated circuits) unique design provides lower-cost and better return on investment (ROI) than traditional solutions.
SB7800 Series Smart Switches—Mellanox SB7800 Series Switches have the highest fabric performance available in the market with up to 7 Tbps of non-blocking bandwidth and only 90 ns port-to-port latency—10 times the performance of other switches. Built with Mellanox’s Switch-IB 2 InfiniBand switch device, the SB7800 series provides up to 36100 Gbps full bi-directional bandwidth per port.
Mellanox is Advanced HPC’s elite partner for high performance networking solutions: network and multicore processors, network adapters, switches, cables, software and silicon, that accelerate application runtime and maximize business results for a wide range of markets including high performance computing, enterprise data centers, Web 2.0, cloud, storage, network security, telecom and financial services.
