Mellanox Intros Programmable Network Adapter with FPGA

Mellanox Technologies introduced its Programmable ConnectX-3 Pro adapter card with Virtual Protocol Interconnect (VPI) technology and aimed at modern data centers, public and private clouds, Web 2.0 infrastructures, telecommunication, and high-performance computing systems.

The new adapter uses an on-board integrated FPGA and memory to enable users to bring their own customized applications such as IPSEC encryption, enhanced flow steering and Network Address Translation (NAT), overlay networks bridge or router, data inspection, data compression or deduplication offloads, and others.

The programmable adapter card supports both InfiniBand and Ethernet protocols at bandwidths up to 56Gb/s. In addition, the FPGA can be engaged on the PCIe bus, the network interface, or in both locations simultaneously, giving the card complete flexibility for HPC, cloud, Web 2.0 and enterprise data center environments.

“Data center administrators and application users have looked for simple, powerful and more flexible ways to run applications at their highest potential, and to enable their own innovations as a competitive advantage,” said Gilad Shainer, vice president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies. “The Programmable ConnectX-3 Pro adapter card with FPGA completely revitalizes a data center’s ability to boost application performance by enabling a flexible and efficient programmable capability as data enters the network interface or is sent out.”
