Mellanox will be showcasing Dell sever solutions at Dell/EMC World, May 8-11, at the Sands Expo Center, Las Vegas, NV. We will be at booth #1549 and invite you to drop by and see for yourself demo of our data center networking solutions that will include: Spectrum 100GbE switch, ConnectX-5, ConnectX-4, ConnectX-4 Lx and Dell IO NICs and LinkX copper and optical cables solutions.

We also pleased to announce that at the event we also have in our booth the Dell’s PowerEdge 6320p, a modular server node with our EDR InfiniBand connectivity. Dell EMC continues a proud history of innovation with the new C6320p modular server node. This 1U half-width server contains a single Intel® Xeon® Phi™ processor with up to 72 out-of-order cores and Mellanox 100G EDR InfiniBand to ensure maximum CPU and server utilization, which makes the system ideal for the performance demanding HPC environments.

Housing up to four nodes per C6300 chassis, it can deliver a maximum of 288 cores per 2U for tremendous parallel performance. With Mellanox® ConnectX®-4 100Gb/s embedded HCA in each node, this system can offer more than 6000 cores per 42U rack, creating a platform for accelerating data-intensive computation, like deep learning, life sciences or weather simulation.
Mellanox EDR networking offers SwitchIB-2 with Scalable Hierarchical Aggregation and Reduction Protocol (SHARP)™ technology as a scale out platform that can support offload technology of MPI and SHMEM/PGAS communications. This is particularly important for Knight’s Landing processors which have a lower clock speed than their Xeon cousins and are not well suited to run RDMA emulation or MPI collective processing themselves. This key differentiating capability that Mellanox networks offer is particularly appropriate in this age of artificial intelligence and machine learning, as it allows the network to operate as an intelligent coprocessor in your cluster, making the fabric a synergistic partner in the parallel processing paradigm.
The C6320p also leverages the scale and cost efficiencies of the integrated Dell Remote Access Controller 8 (iDRAC8) with Lifecycle Controller, proven by operation in millions of servers worldwide. iDRAC8 with Lifecycle Controller delivers intelligent management and configuration automation for hyper-converged solutions and appliances, and enables you to select the management functions you need, to streamline operations by reducing the time and number of steps to deploy, monitor, and update PowerEdge C6320p servers throughout their entire life cycle.
We also have several Mellanox technologists speaking at the show and invite you to attend:
Looking forward to see you there.
