SuperBlades Gain 20 Gbps Infiniband

Arthur Cole

Super Micro Computer has tapped Mellanox controllers to bring 20 Gbps Infiniband connectivity to its SuperBlade servers.


The interconnect is available through Super Micro's AOC-UINF-M2 universal I/O network adapter and the SuperBlade integrated switch and Mezzanine IB solutions.


The switch solution supports up to 14 internal ports and 10 external ports, delivering a total bandwidth of 960 Gbps and latency as low as 1.2 microseconds. Users also gain the benefit of hardware-based I/O virtualization.


The AOC adapters can also be ported to the company's Twin SuperServers and UIO servers using dual CX4 connectors to provide an instant upgrade to dual-port Infiniband.
