What is FDR10 InfiniBand?

FDR10 InfiniBand is a Mellanox proprietary protocol similar in format to FDR but running at a speed identical to 40Gb/s Ethernet. FDR10 supports InfiniBand at true 40Gb/s line speeds and FEC while taking advantage of mid-planes, connectors, PCB materials and cables designed for 40Gb/s Ethernet.


InfiniBand Market Applications

InfiniBand is increasingly becomes an interconnect of choice in not just high-performance computing environments, but also in mainstream enterprise grids, data center virtualization solutions, storage, and embedded environments. The low latency and high-performance of InfiniBand coupled with the economic benefits of its consolidation and virtualization capabilities provides end-customers the ideal combination as they build out their applications.


Why Mellanox 10/40GbE?

Mellanox’s scale-out 10/40GbE products enable users to benefit from a far more scalable, lower latency, and virtualized fabric with lower overall fabric costs and power consumption, greater efficiencies, and simplified management than traditional Ethernet fabrics. Utilizing 10 and 40GbE NICs, core and top-of-rack switches and fabric optimization software, a broader array of end-users can benefit from a more scalable and high-performance Ethernet fabric.
