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.
