Mellanox Ethernet and InfiniBand Solutions Deliver Breakthrough Performance for AMD EPYC™ 7002 Processor Based Data Centers

The Combination of Mellanox’s Smart Interconnect Acceleration Engines, PCI Express 4.0 and AMD’s Innovative CPU Architecture Provides the Foundation for Next Generation Compute and Storage Infrastructures

SUNNYVALE Calif. and YOKNEAM Isra­el – August 7, 2019 Mel­lanox® Tech­no­lo­gies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX), a lea­ding sup­plier of high-per­for­mance, end-to-end smart inter­con­nect solu­ti­ons for data cen­ter ser­vers and sto­rage sys­tems, today announ­ced that Mel­lanox Ether­net and Infi­ni­Band Con­nec­tX® smart adap­ter solu­ti­ons are opti­mi­zed to pro­vi­de bre­akthrough per­for­mance and sca­la­bi­li­ty for the new AMD EPYC™ 7002 Seri­es pro­ces­sor-based com­pu­te and sto­rage infra­st­ruc­tures. Lever­aging the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC™ pro­ces­sors’ sup­port of PCI Express 4.0, inno­va­ti­ve archi­tec­tu­re, and four times peak FLOPS per-socket per­for­mance over the AMD EPYC 7001 seri­es processor1, mutu­al cus­to­mers can maxi­mi­ze their data cen­ter return-on-invest­ment. 

The com­bi­na­ti­on of Mel­lanox 25, 50, 100 and 200 Giga­bit Ether­net and HDR 200 Giga­bit Infi­ni­Band adap­ters, and PCI Express 4.0 sup­port in the second-genera­ti­on AMD EPYC pro­ces­sor, pro­vi­des high-per­for­mance com­pu­ting, arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence, cloud and enter­pri­se data cen­ters the high data band­width they need for the most com­pu­te and sto­rage deman­ding app­li­ca­ti­ons,” said Micha­el Kagan, Chief Tech­no­lo­gy Offi­cer at Mel­lanox Tech­no­lo­gies. “By lever­aging our smart acce­le­ra­ti­on engi­nes for In-Net­work Com­pu­ting, vir­tua­liz­a­ti­on, sto­rage and secu­ri­ty, our part­ners and cus­to­mers can maxi­mi­ze the per­for­mance capa­bi­li­ties of the new second genera­ti­on EPYC™ pro­ces­sors-based plat­forms.” 

With unmat­ched PCI Express 4.0 con­nec­ti­vi­ty, the AMD EPYC™ 7002 pro­ces­sor plat­form is also ide­al for advan­ced ser­ver based sto­rage solu­ti­ons. The lar­ge num­ber of PCI Express 4.0 lanes enab­les direct con­nec­ti­vi­ty to 24 NVMe sto­rage dri­ves plus Mel­lanox Con­nec­tX 100 and 200 giga­bit per second adap­ters and achie­ve full I/O throughout. 

Dri­ven by AMD’s histo­ry of dat­a­cen­ter inno­va­ti­on, inclu­ding 7nm pro­cess tech­no­lo­gy, the first x86 sup­plier to sup­port PCIe 4.0, and embed­ded secu­ri­ty fea­tures, the second genera­ti­on AMD EPYC Pro­ces­sors set a new stan­dard for the modern dat­a­cen­ter,” said Scott Aylor, cor­po­ra­te vice pre­si­dent and gene­ral mana­ger, Dat­a­cen­ter Solu­ti­ons Group at AMD. “We’re exci­ted and thank­ful to have our part­ners, like Mel­lanox, sup­por­ting the launch of the second genera­ti­on AMD EPYC pro­ces­sor. Working tog­e­ther we can enab­le our cus­to­mers to trans­form their data cen­ter ope­ra­ti­ons and deli­ver the bre­akthrough per­for­mance they need.”
