The world is in the midst of a digital transformation that is having a profound impact on individuals, business, and society. As businesses adapt to capitalize on digital, trust will be the currency that drives this new economy. The new IBM® z14™ (z14) mainframe is the core of trusted digital experiences. It enables the ultimate protection for your data and simplifies compliance to regulations. With z14, you can apply machine learning to your most valuable data to create deeper insights. And z14 is designed to be open and connected in the cloud, enabling massive transaction scale of high volume encrypted workloads at the lowest cost.
Supporting the infrastructure and massive transaction scale needed by the z14 is a core competency delivered by Mellanox. Newly added support for the Mellanox ConnectX®-4 LX adapter as the, IBM 10GbE RoCE Express2, FC# 0412, offers the best cost effective Ethernet adapter solution for 10Gb/s Ethernet speeds, enabling seamless networking, clustering, or storage. The adapter reduces application runtime, and offers the flexibility and scalability to make infrastructure run as efficiently and productively as possible.
With the exponential increase in usage of data and the creation of new applications, the demand for the highest throughput, lowest latency, virtualization and sophisticated data acceleration engines continues to rise. Mellanox ConnectX-4 Lx EN enables data centers powered by the IBM z14 to leverage the world’s leading interconnect adapter for increasing their operational efficiency, improving servers’ utilization, maximizing applications productivity, while reducing total cost of ownership (TCO).
The Mellanox ConnectX-4 Lx EN provides an unmatched combination of 1, 10, 25, 40, and 50GbE bandwidth, sub-microsecond latency and a 75 million packets per second message rate.
