Mellanox Announces a Strategic Collaboration With HPE to Advance Innovations in High Performance Computing and Machine Learning Platforms
Mellanox (News - Alert)® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX), a leading
supplier of high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data
center servers and storage systems, announced today a strategic
collaboration with HPE to enable the industry's most efficient
high-performance computing and machine learning data centers, based on
the innovative technologies from both companies. The mutual solutions
will enable customers to leverage the InfiniBand and Gen-Z open
standards to maximize their return on investment for current and future
data centers and applications.
Leveraging Mellanox's intelligent and In-Network Computing capabilities
in ConnectX®-5 InfiniBand adapters and Switch-IB2 InfiniBand
switches in the recently announced HPE SGI 8600 and HPE Apollo 6000
Gen10 (News - Alert) systems, enables both companies to now offer the most powerful,
scalable and efficient high-performance computing and machine learning
fabric solutions in the industry. This collaboration will enable both
companies to develop synergistic technology integration and the optimal
usage of the upcoming HDR (News - Alert) InfiniBand Quantum switches, ConnectX-6
adapters and future Gen-Z devices. In addition, joint development with
HPE's Advanced Development team will pave the road to Exascale computing.
Mellanox In-Network Computing interconnect architecture provides the
leading technology to advance data processing and real time analytics,
which is critical for a diverse range of HPC and machine learning
applications. The collaboration with HPE will enable the companies to
leverage the technology advancements of HDR InfiniBand and Gen-Z to
overcome performance limitations of proprietary products and advance the
levels of compute efficiency, scalability and data processing
"Data-centric computing, In-Network computing and open standards are all
necessary for technology innovations and for achieving state-of-the-art
performance for a broad range of HPC and machine learning applications,"
said Bill Mannel, vice president and general manager of HPC and AI at
HPE. "The HPE and Mellanox collaboration will enable us to bring the
solutions our customers need, based on InfiniBand and Gen-Z
capabilities, to maximize data centers efficiency, and to deliver the
highest value to our customers."
Mllanox and HPE will showcase the new solutions at the world-wide
development and benchmarking centers and together will optimize
customers' applications and provide support in planning, developing and
deploying future data centers.
"We have been working with HPE for more than a decade now, accelerating
many of the world's leading supercomputers," said Gilad Shainer, vice
president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies. "The growing demands
for faster data analysis and scalable data simulations mandates
technology innovations and collaborations around open standards, to
deliver the needed compute and storage infrastructures today and in the
future. The collaboration with HPE will enable tighter technology
development, and optimize use of the InfiniBand architecture and for
Gen-Z in the future. This will allow both companies to build the most
efficient data centers for HPC and machine learning workloads."
Mellanox and HPE will be presenting more details of the new
collaboration at June 2017 HP-CAST and the International Supercomputing
Conference in Frankfurt, Germany.
