AppliedMicro Matches X-Gene ARM Chip with Mellanox InfiniBand

LEIPZIG, Germany, June 23 Mellanox Technologies, Ltd., a leading supplier of high-performance, end-to-end connectivity solutions for data center servers and storage systems, today announced that its end-to-end FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand and 10/40 Gigabit Ethernet interconnect solutions deliver leading performance and efficiency for Applied Micro Circuits Corporation X-Gene ARM-based platform. The X-Gene family with integrated 64-bit ARM-enabled processing is the first commercially available 64-bit ARM platform. Connected with Mellanox interconnect solutions, the X-Gene ARM architecture platform provides high-performance data centers, cloud providers and application developers with an efficient ARM-based infrastructure. Demonstrations of the joint solution will take place at the ISC’14 conference (June 23-25) at the Mellanox booth (#531) and the AppliedMicro booth (#506).

Mellanox FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand and 10/40 Gigabit Ethernet products, optimized for the X-Gene platform, ensures that leading ARM technology applications receive high CPU efficiency levels with the fastest data speeds to enable superior performance.

“As the only ARM 64-bit-based x86-class server solution provider, AppliedMicro is pleased to work with the interconnect market leader to enable scale-out solutions with both InfiniBand and Ethernet for a variety of workloads, including High Performance Computing, with our first generation X-Gene Server on a Chip product,” said Gaurav Singh, vice president of technology strategy at AppliedMicro. “Mellanox’s high-speed, high-reliability end-to-end solutions paired with X-Gene’s brawny cores, wide memory bandwidth and integrated high-speed I/O delivers world-class system-level performance at substantially lower power.”

“Mellanox enables the usage of data by enabling the fastest movement of information between CPUs and between CPUs and storage elements. Together with AppliedMicro, we now introduce the first 64-bit ARM platform for commercial usage,” said Gilad Shainer, vice president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies. “Server and storage platforms utilizing the X-Gene platform with Mellanox FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand and Ethernet interconnect solutions will ensure the highest performance and return-on-investment.”
