Mellanox Introduces Programmable Network Adapter Product Line with Application Acceleration Engine

ConnectX-3 Pro with On-Board FPGA Enables Maximum Flexibility for Users to Optimize Their HPC, Web 2.0, Cloud and Enterprise Data Center Applications

SC’14, New Orleans, LA. – November 19, 2014 – 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 the Programmable ConnectX®-3 Pro adapter card with Virtual Protocol Interconnect® (VPI) technology. Modern data centers, public and private clouds, Web 2.0 infrastructures, telecommunication, and high-performance computing require to achieve the highest performance and maximum flexibility. With an on-board integrated FPGA and memory, Mellanox's programmable adapter provides maximum flexibility for users to bring their own customized applications such as IPSEC encryption, enhanced flow steering and Network Address Translation (NAT), overlay networks bridge or router, data inspection, data compression or deduplication offloads, and others.

Data and packet processing engines together with the advanced ConnectX-3 Pro VPI capabilities can deliver a competitive advantage and enable users to adjust and optimize their data center infrastructure to serve their applications in the most efficient way. This allows any attached FPGA to become compatible with the ConnectX-3 Pro adapter – offering users application acceleration through network or PCI Express Gen 3 interfaces. The programmable adapter card supports both InfiniBand and Ethernet protocols at bandwidths up to 56Gb/s. In addition, the FPGA can be engaged on the PCIe bus, the network interface, or in both locations simultaneously, giving the card complete flexibility for HPC, cloud, Web 2.0 and enterprise data center environments.

“Data center administrators and application users have looked for simple, powerful and more flexible ways to run applications at their highest potential, and to enable their own innovations as a competitive advantage,” said Gilad Shainer, vice president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies. “The Programmable ConnectX-3 Pro adapter card with FPGA completely revitalizes a data center’s ability to boost application performance by enabling a flexible and efficient programmable capability as data enters the network interface or is sent out.”
