Mellanox’s messaging acceleration software (VMA 6.0) delivers record-breaking performance for socket-based applications, including those used in financial services, transactional databases and in-memory caching
SUNNYVALE, CA. and YOKNEAM, ISRAEL – January 9, 2012 – Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX; TASE: MLNX), a leading supplier of high-performance, end-to-end connectivity solutions for data center servers and storage systems, today announced the general availability of its Messaging Accelerator, VMA 6.0, with enhanced TCP and UDP acceleration support over ConnectX®-3 VPI adapter cards. Mellanox VMA 6.0 delivers record-breaking, ultra-low UDP latency under 1.4 microseconds and TCP socket latency under 1.7 microseconds – more than two times faster than competitive offerings. VMA 6.0, in conjunction with ConnectX-3 adapter cards, boosts performance for a wide range of applications serving high frequency trading, databases, in-memory caching and more.
“VMA 6.0 enables the highest performance of any socket-based application over our leading low-latency interconnect solutions,” said David Barzilai, vice president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies. “VMA provides data center managers with the technology leadership for low-latency data distribution or high packet rates based applications, resulting in faster executions, lower response time and higher return on investment.”
Enabled with ConnectX-3, VMA 6.0 provides a unified acceleration platform for all standard application networking communications methods such as TCP, UDP Multicast and UDP unicast, improving application-to-application performance and latency. VMA 6.0 leverages ConnectX-3’s new hardware capabilities such as hardware-based flow steering, which enables discrete acceleration of flows in a scalable and balanced manner.
VMA 6.0 provides the fastest order execution time for enterprise financial firms such as exchanges to increase their competitive positioning. VMA 6.0 and ConnectX-3 adapters include support for PCIe 3.0, delivering future proofing and consistent low-latency for many-core compute platforms.
VMA 6.0 is a dynamically-linked user-space Linux library for accelerating messaging and streaming traffic. Applications that utilize standard BSD sockets use the library to offload network processing from a server’s CPU, with zero application changes required. The application traffic is passed directly to the Mellanox ConnectX-3 10/40GbE or FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand adapter from the application user space, bypassing the kernel and IP stack and thus minimizing context switching, buffer copies and interruptions resulting in world-record low-latency and higher throughput.
Mellanox VMA 6.0 is currently available through all Mellanox channel partners and distributors. For more information, please visit www.mellanox.com.
