Mellanox Ships BlueField System-on-Chip Platforms and SmartNIC Adapters to OEMs and Hyperscale Customers
SUNNYVALE, Calif. & YOKNEAM, Israel, Jan. 4, 2018 -- Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX), a leading supplier of high-performance, end-to-end smart interconnect solutions for data center servers and storage systems, today announced the first shipments of its BlueField system-on-chip (SoC) platforms and SmartNIC adapters to major data center, hyperscale and OEM customers. Mellanox BlueField dual-port 100Gb/s SoC is ideal for cloud, Web 2.0, Big Data, storage, enterprise, high-performance computing, and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) applications.
BlueField sets new NVMe-over-Fabrics performance records, demonstrating seven and a half million IOPS during initial testing, with zero CPU utilization. Furthermore, BlueField delivers under three microseconds of NVMe latency to enable less than five microseconds of additional latency for end to end access to remote NVMe device over a local NVMe device. BlueField's NVMe over Fabrics advanced hardware acceleration offload guarantees maximum performance with no CPU utilization, thereby improving system total cost of ownership (TCO). In addition, BlueField delivers up to a smashing close to 400Gb/s of RDMA bidirectional traffic bandwidth over dual 100Gb/s ports.
"We are excited to ship BlueField systems and SmartNIC adapters to our major customers and partners, enabling them to build the next generation of storage, cloud, security and other platforms and to gain a competitive advantage," said Yael Shenhav, vice president of products at Mellanox Technologies.
