Super Micro Computer, Inc. (San Jose, CA) announced the availability of high-bandwidth, low-latency InfiniBand (IB) connectivity solutions for its SuperBlade and high-performance computing (HPC) product lines.

Both the Supermicro AOC-UINF-M2 Universal I/O (UIO) network adapters and SuperBlade integrated switch and Mezzanine IB solutions are based on Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. controllers for industry-leading 20Gb/s InfiniBand I/O performance.

Supermicro has been shipping 4X DDR InfiniBand blade switches and HCAs, the industry’s fastest (20Gbps in each direction) blade server interconnect, since Q3 2007. With 960 processing cores per 42U rack and 4X DDR InfiniBand, SuperBlade offers cost savings associated with less IT space required as well as easier maintenance and management, making these solutions suitable for enterprise and HPC applications.

As optimized 1U HPC solutions, Supermicro 1U Twin servers support up to 16 processor cores via two DP nodes, each with an onboard Mellanox 20Gb/s ConnectX InfiniBand controller, in 1U of rack space. Beside the HPC-optimized 6015TW-INF and 6015T-INF 1U Twin SuperServers, existing Supermicro UIO server customers can upgrade right away to dual-port InfiniBand with the new AOC-UINF-M2 adapter featuring dual CX4 connectors.
