Mellanox Skyway InfiniBand to Ethernet Gateway
EDR/HDR InfiniBand to 100G/200G Ethernet Gateway for High Performance Compute and Storage Infrastructures
Mellanox Skyway appliance, is a 1.6 terabit-per-second InfiniBand to Ethernet gateway appliance, supporting eight 100 or 200 gigabit ports on each of the InfiniBand and Ethernet sides. Customers can scale the number of Skyway appliances over time to meet the demands of their users.
By leveraging the Mellanox Skyway appliance, InfiniBand data centers achieve the lowest interconnect latency to ensure maximum application performance.
Mellanox Gateway operating system, MLNX-GW, is the management software that handles the Mellanox Skyway. It controls the ConnectX adapters, as well as the high availability and load balancing between cards and between gateway appliances.
Mellanox Skyway is also managed by the external Unified Fabric Manager (UFM) software, that may reside either in the UFM appliance or on any host in the InfiniBand cluster. The UFM enables data center operators to efficiently provision, monitor and operate the state-of-the-art InfiniBand data center fabric
