Mellanox Enables Industry's First PCIe Gen-4 OpenPOWER-Based Rackspace OCP Server with 100Gb/s Connectivity

Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. announced that Mellanox ConnectX-5 Open Compute Project (OCP) Ethernet adapter will enable the world's first PCIe Gen-4 OpenPOWER/OCP-based Zaius, the open server platform from Google and Rackspace. Mellanox will showcase ConnectX-5, the industry's first PCIe Gen-4 based 100Gb/s OCP Ethernet adapter at the OCP Summit, 2017.

The exponential growth of data demands not only the fastest throughput but also smarter networks. Mellanox intelligent interconnect solutions incorporate advanced acceleration engines that perform sophisticated processing algorithms on the data as it moves through the network. Intelligent network solutions greatly improve the performance and total infrastructure efficiency of data intensive applications in the cloud such as cognitive computing, machine learning and Internet of Things (IoT). Mellanox's ConnectX-5 supports both InfiniBand and Ethernet, and is the most advanced 10/25/50/100Gb/s intelligent adapter on the market today. Additionally, as the first adapter to support PCIe Express Gen 4.0, ConnectX-5 delivers full 200Gb/s data throughput to servers and storage platforms.

27 Feb 2017 New SuperBlade from Supermicro Revolutionizes Market Delivering Lower Initial Acquisition Cost and TCO [61166]
Supermicro, February 27th, 2017

Breaking the Mold of Proprietary High Cost Blade Designs, Delivering Better Acquisition Cost and Higher Density, Performance and Power Efficiency than Rackmount and OCP Servers

Super Micro Computer, Inc., a global leader in compute, storage and networking technologies including green computing, has announced its new SuperBlade that delivers a better initial acquisition cost structure than traditional blade servers, rack mount and OCP servers with the density and operational efficiency of blade servers in an open Rack Scale Design enabled architecture.

The new 8U SuperBlade supports both current and new generation Intel Xeon processor-based blade servers with the fastest 100G EDR InfiniBand and Omni-Path switches for mission critical, enterprise and data center applications. It also leverages the same Ethernet switches, chassis management modules, and software as the successful MicroBlade for improved reliability, serviceability, and affordability. It maximizes the performance and power efficiency with DP and MP processors in half-height and full-height blades, respectively. The new smaller form factor 4U SuperBlade maximizes density and power efficiency while enabling up to 140 dual-processor servers or 280 single-processor servers per 42U rack.

13 Dec 2016 NVMe over fabrics vs Fibre Channel, Ethernet, Infiniband [58919]
ComputerWeekly, December 13th, 2016

"NVMe over fabrics takes the built-for-flash advantages of the PCIe-based protocol, and allows NVMe to be sent via Fibre Channel, Ethernet and Infiniband networks...

We recently looked at NVMe, a PCIe-based protocol that allows computers to communicate with storage in a way optimised for flash storage, with huge increases in input/output (I/O) and throughput possible compared with spinning disk-era SAS and SATA protocols..."
