Chelsio Supports Scali MPI Connect

SUNNYVALE, Calif. and MARLBOROUGH, Mass. -- Chelsio Communications, Inc., the leading provider of 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) adapters and ASIC solutions, and Scali, the leader in high-performance clustering solutions for datacenters, today announced Scali MPI Connect(TM) v5.6.3 is now supported by the Chelsio family of 10GbE Unified Wire RDMA/TCP (iWARP) adapters. MPI (Message Passage Interface) is one of the most successful standards in the computing industry and has a ubiquitous leadership in high performance computing. Scali MPI Connect is a performance leader among the various MPI implementations, improving end-users' ROI of their compute resources and includes patent-pending support for iWARP-enabled relaxed packet ordering.

Chelsio's iWARP solution supports uDAPL (User Direct Access Programming Library) and is OFED (OpenFabrics Enterprise Distribution) compliant. Support for the OFED software stack is already integrated into major versions of Linux distributions from Red Hat Inc. and Novell, Inc., making the Chelsio iWARP approach a 'plug-and-play' solution for Linux users. Now with Scali MPI Connect support for Chelsio 10GbE iWARP adapters, Scali MPI Connect users can further enhance the performance of their applications, using Ethernet-based adapters that deliver the industry's lowest latency and 10 times the message rate over existing standards-based cluster networking products.

"The performance of 10GbE adapters from Chelsio makes them an ideal fit for Scali customers seeking a complete Ethernet-based solution for their intensive computing needs," said Rob Secontine, Scali's vice president of sales. "We are excited to work with Chelsio and expect that our customers will be enthusiastic about using Chelsio's industry-leading interconnect products."
