Distributor Drive Control Corporation (DCC) is pleased to announce the availability of the new range of Mellanox 40 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) server and storage interconnect solutions. These solutions feature RoCE (RDMA over Converged Ethernet) and have been optimised for intensive applications. Application performance has been accelerated by more than 80 percent, resulting in significant return on investment.

“Mellanox is the first and only company to deliver a complete end-to-end, RoCE enabled, 40GbE solution including NICs, switches, cables and software accelerators. These solutions are ideal for clients running Virtual Server environments, those that need to analyse large quantities of data, those involved in High Performance Computing (HPC), as well as those who need to process and store high-speed data streams. They offer a marked increase in network performance, efficient server and storage utilisation and increased storage throughput,” says Raul Del Fabbro, Storage Division Manager at DCC.

Mellanox 40GbE based clusters, accelerated with RoCE technology, deliver a more than 80 percent application performance increase compared to 10GbE based clusters. For storage access, Mellanox 40GbE delivers 4X faster storage throughput, enabling new levels of storage density and dramatic savings in CAPEX and OPEX. The combination of PCIe 3.0 platforms and Mellanox 40GbE products with RoCE ensures that servers and storage are fully utilised and deliver maximum return-on-investment.

“Mellanox delivers the highest application performance and densities over Ethernet with the industry’s only, comprehensive end-to-end 40GbE interconnect solution, dramatically reducing IT costs and enabling a power efficient compute centre,” Del Fabbro concludes.

Mellanox RoCE accelerated ConnectX-3 PCI Express 3.0 40GbE NICs, and SwitchX 40GbE switch systems are available now from Drive Control Corporation.
