Mellanox adapters supporting RoCE will deliver world-class latency performance over Ethernet enabling datacenter applications to scale and perform at unprecedented levels
NEW YORK, April 19 -- High Performance Computing Linux Financial Markets -- Mellanox Technologies, Ltd., a leading supplier of high-performance, end-to-end connectivity solutions for datacenter servers and storage systems, today announced the company's line of 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet adapters will support the InfiniBand Trade Association's recently announced specification aimed at furthering deployment of high-performance and low-latency applications in the enterprise datacenter: Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) over Converged Ethernet (RoCE). RoCE brings the low-latency and efficiency benefits of InfiniBand to the datacenter Ethernet fabric, and holds the promise to bring the benefits of low latency to a significantly wider class of datacenter and cloud applications.
Low-latency is a key characteristic of clusters made out of commodity x86 servers -- delivering higher transactions per second, and enabling high clustering efficiency, both leading to higher ROI and competitive advantage for organizations. This has been proven in high-performance computing, data warehousing, financial applications and increasingly in cloud deployments where clusters play a key role in delivering elasticity. IBTA based technologies have played a key role in advancing these markets and applications. RoCE brings those low-latency and efficiency benefits to the datacenter Ethernet fabric. RoCE utilizes loss less Ethernet enhancements, such as those being delivered by the work of the IEEE DCB (Data Center Bridging) Work Group to deliver superior latency and quality or service while reducing the cost and power consumption in Ethernet adapters by enabling simpler, purpose-built RDMA implementations in hardware.
"The growth of Extreme Transaction Processing (XTP) applications, and elastic compute and storage clusters for cloud computing are making low-latency Ethernet a key requirement for datacenters," said Sujal Das, senior director of product management. "We look forward to delivering to the market new RoCE-based adapter products that will allow these classes of datacenter and cloud applications to deliver significantly higher jobs per second and ROI using the Ethernet fabric."

In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
