The Mellanox ConnectX-3 FDR VPI IB/E Adapter supports Virtual Protocol Interconnect, which enables you to have either two ports of InfiniBand FDR or two ports of 40 Gb Ethernet, or one port of each.
ConnectX-3 with Virtual Intelligent Queuing (Virtual-IQ) technology provides dedicated adapter resources and guaranteed isolation and protection for virtual machines within the server. I/O virtualization with ConnectX-3 gives data center managers better server utilization and LAN and SAN unification while reducing cost, power, and cable complexity.
Mellanox ConnectX-3 delivers low latency, high bandwidth, and computing efficiency for performance-driven server and storage clustering applications. Efficient computing is achieved by offloading from the CPU routine activities, which makes more processor power available for the application. Network protocol processing and data movement impacts, such as InfiniBand RDMA and send/receive semantics, are completed in the adapter without CPU intervention. The ConnectX-3 advanced acceleration technology enables higher cluster efficiency and scalability of up to tens of thousands of nodes.
