Mellanox Issues InfiniBand SDK

SAN FRANCISCO -- Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ:MLNX) (TASE:MLNX), a leading supplier of semiconductor-based, server and storage interconnect products, today announced the general availability of the NFS-RDMA SDK (Network File System over Remote Direct Memory Access Software Development Kit) for its InfiniBand adapter products. The SDK supports the OpenFabrics Enterprise Distribution (OFED) version 1.2 software stack and delivers 1.3GB/s (gigabytes per second) of read throughput and 600MB/s (megabytes per second) of write throughput over a single InfiniBand link – a ten fold improvement to existing NFS over Gigabit Ethernet solutions available in the market.

“Mellanox InfiniBand solutions offer the best price/performance when it comes to delivering compute and storage capacity scaling, and performance using multi-core CPU-based commodity servers,” said Sujal Das, director of software product management at Mellanox Technologies. “With the release of the NFS-RDMA SDK for InfiniBand, we are accelerating the time to market for OEMs and end users, enabling them to gain a competitive edge and better ROI for their network file systems based applications.”
