IS5000 Family enables compute clusters and converged datacenters to operate at any scale while reducing operational costs and infrastructure complexity
SUNNYVALE, Calif., and YOKNEAM, Israel, Oct. 18 -- Mellanox Technologies, Ltd., a leading supplier of high-performance, end-to-end connectivity solutions for datacenter servers and storage systems, today announced that its IS5000 line of 108 and 324-port modular 40Gb/s InfiniBand switches with industry-leading latency performance are now available through IBM's iDataPlex and Intelligent Cluster product lines. Mellanox's switch systems, in combination with it industry-leading ConnectX-2 40Gb/s InfiniBand adapters, offer IBM customers I/O infrastructure performance and scalability for datacenters, cloud, Web 2.0 and high-performance computing (HPC) environments.
"IBM is delivering solutions that maximize application performance and also meet the requirements for infrastructure economics and green initiatives," said David Turek, vice president of deep computing at IBM. "Mellanox 40Gb/s InfiniBand switches complement our Intelligent Cluster and iDataPlex products, providing our customers designing large HPC systems, clouds and virtualized datacenters with industry-leading scalability, performance, and economics."
Mellanox's IS5000 line of InfiniBand switches provides the highest-performing fabric solutions. HPC and enterprise datacenter IT managers using the IS5100 and IS5300 can realize a greater return on their compute and infrastructure investments through increased CPU productivity via higher network throughput and availability. The ultra-dense IS5100 108-port and IS5300 324-port switches were built using Mellanox's 4th generation InfiniScale IV InfiniBand switch device, and provide up to 40Gb/s fully, non-blocking, bidirectional bandwidth per port with industry-leading 300ns port-to-port latency. Networks built with the IS5100 and IS5300 can carry converged traffic with the combination of assured bandwidth and granular quality of service.
"We are pleased with the addition of Mellanox 40Gb/s InfiniBand switch systems to IBM's iDataPlex and Intelligent Cluster product lines," said John Monson, vice president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies. "Our complete line of IS5000 40Gb/s InfiniBand switch systems and adapter cards enable IBM's customers to build powerful, scalable, and cost-efficient, green HPC clusters and cloud datacenters that deliver flexibility, as well as higher performance for their most compute demanding applications."
The IS5000 family of switches with integrated management functionality allows customers to grow their networks with Mellanox as the complete system for high-performance networking and the unified networking vendor of choice. Common modules like switch, fan and power supplies across the entire IS5000 director class family of switches provide customers the ultimate value and ease of use.
Available today, Mellanox's full line of ConnectX-2 single and dual-port 40Gb/s InfiniBand and 10GigE adapter cards, and 36, 108, 216, 324 and 648-port 40Gb/s InfiniBand switch systems are available from IBM. Visit their website at www.ibm.com to learn more.

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.
