Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX)(TASE: MLNX), a leading supplier of
high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data center servers
and storage systems, today announced that the Unstructured Data Accelerator
(UDA) has been selected as a finalist for the ‘Best of Interop’ in the
‘Performance Optimization and Testing’ category. UDA is an open-source
acceleration package accelerating Hadoop Map Reduce framework, and provides
RDMA acceleration for the shuffle and merge process within the MapReduce
analytical engine. The RDMA capabilities deliver a lower latency, higher
bandwidth data movement in the Hadoop cluster, while lowering the CPU overhead
for handing network operations.
