Mellanox announced that HDR 200G InfiniBand aims to accelerate the next generation of supercomputers worldwide, enabling higher levels of research and scientific discovery.

HDR 200G InfiniBand solutions include the ConnectX-6 adapters, Mellanox Quantum switches, LinkX cables and transceivers and software packages.

With its highest data throughput, extremely low latency, and smart In-Network Computing acceleration engines, HDR InfiniBand provides performance and scalability for the most demanding compute and data applications.

HDR 200G InfiniBand introduces new offload and acceleration engines, for delivering leading performance and scalability for high-performance computing, artificial intelligence, cloud, storage, and other applications.

InfiniBand, a standards-based interconnect technology, enjoys the continuous development of new capabilities, while maintaining backwards and forward software compatibility. InfiniBand is the preferred choice for supercomputers, replacing lower performance or proprietary interconnect options.

“We are proud to have our HDR InfiniBand solutions accelerate supercomputers around the world, enhance research and discoveries, and advancing Exascale programs,” said Mellanox SVP Gilad Shainer.

“InfiniBand continues to gain market share, and be selected by many research, educational and government institutes, weather and climate facilities, and commercial organizations. The technology advantages of InfiniBand make it the interconnect of choice for compute and storage infrastructures.”

The Texas Advanced Computing Center’s (TACC) Frontera supercomputer, funded by the National Science Foundation, is the fastest supercomputer at any U.S. university and one of the most powerful systems in the world.

Ranked #5 on the June 2019 TOP500 Supercomputers list, Frontera utilizes HDR InfiniBand, and in particular multiple 800-port HDR InfiniBand switches, to deliver unprecedented computing power for science and engineering.

Cygnus is the first HDR InfiniBand supercomputer in Japan, located in the Center for Computational Sciences at the University of Tsukuba. Ranked #264 on the TOP500 list, Cygnus leverages HDR InfiniBand to connect CPUs, GPUs and FPGAs together, enabling accelerated research in the areas of astrophysics, particle physics, material science, life, meteorology and artificial intelligence.
