Lenovo Mellanox QSFP to SFP+ adapter
Part Number: 00D9676, New
Based on Mellanox’s ConnectX-3 technology, these adapters provide a high level of throughput performance for all network environments by removing I/O bottlenecks in mainstream servers that are limiting application performance. With the FDR VPI IB/E Adapter, servers can achieve up to 56 Gb transmit and receive bandwidth. Hardware-based InfiniBand transport and IP over InfiniBand (IPoIB) stateless off-load engines handle the segmentation, reassembly, and checksum calculations that otherwise burden the host processor.
RDMA over InfiniBand and RDMA over Ethernet further accelerate application run time while reducing CPU utilization. RDMA allows very high-volume transaction-intensive applications typical of HPC and financial market firms, as well as other industries where speed of data delivery is paramount. With the ConnectX-3-based adapter, highly compute-intensive tasks running on hundreds or thousands of multiprocessor nodes, such as climate research, molecular modeling, and physical simulations, can share data and synchronize faster, resulting in shorter run times.
