Intelligent ConnectX-6 adapter cards, the newest additions to the Mellanox Smart Interconnect suite and supporting Co-Design and In-Network Compute, introduce new acceleration engines for maximizing High Performance, Machine Learning, Web 2.0, Cloud, Data Analytics and Storage platforms.
ConnectX-6 with Virtual Protocol Interconnect® supports two ports of 200Gb/s InfiniBand and Ethernet connectivity, sub-600 nanosecond latency, and 200 million messages per second, providing the highest performance and most flexible solution for the most demanding applications and markets.
ConnectX-6 VPI delivers the highest throughput and message rate in the industry. As the first adapter to deliver 200Gb/s HDR InfiniBand, 100Gb/s HDR100 InfiniBand and 200Gb/s Ethernet speeds, ConnectX-6 VPI is the perfect product to lead HPC data centers toward Exascale levels of performance and scalability.*For illustration only. Actual product may vary.
ConnectX-6 offers a crucial innovation to network security by providing block-level encryption. Data in transit undergoes encryption and decryption as it is stored or retrieved. The encryption/decryption is offloaded by the ConnectX-6 hardware, saving latency and offloading CPU. ConnectX-6 block-level encryption offload enables protection between users sharing the same resources, as different encryption keys can be used.
