Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX), a leading supplier of
high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data center servers
and storage systems, today announced that HP’s Apollo family of
high-performance computing systems are accelerated by Mellanox’s FDR 56Gb/s
InfiniBand and 10/40 Gigabit Ethernet interconnect solutions to maximize data
center return-on-investment and solve space and energy efficiency challenges.

The HP Apollo family utilizes a modular rack design with advanced air and
water cooling techniques, Smart Memory and Smart Sensors. Compared to standard
rack servers of the same footprint, the new systems increase performance by 4X
while using less energy. The new HP Apollo family with Mellanox interconnects,
enables enterprises to take advantage of the power of data and to enhance
their processing capabilities for the applications of tomorrow.

“We are pleased to collaborate with HP to develop the new Apollo Systems with
Mellanox interconnects,” said Chuck Tybur, vice president, global accounts &
America’s OEM sales from Mellanox Technologies. “The joint solution enables
customers to quickly deploy a scalable and efficient high-performance data
center and accelerate their mission critical applications, while significantly
reducing costs.”

“The HP Apollo family with Mellanox interconnects harnesses the power of HPC,
while running an eco-friendly data center,” said Scott Misage, general
manager, High Performance Computing, HP. “Enterprises looking to adopt HPC
technology and early adopters can both benefit from the economic and
environmental gains with our new solutions.”

The HP Apollo portfolio features the HP Apollo 6000 System and HP Apollo 8000
System. The HP Apollo 6000 System has an air cooled server rack design with up
to 160 servers per rack, external power shelf and Mellanox’s ConnectX®-3
adapter cards with Virtual Protocol Interconnect (VPI). The ConnectX-3 adapter
cards with VPI supports FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand and 10/40 Gigabit Ethernet with
RoCE connectivity. The solution reduces operating expenses by up to 45 percent
and decreases floor space by up to 60 percent than a competing blade.
Enterprises with demanding applications such as electronic design automation
or financial service risk analysis can now leverage the power of HPC with an
infrastructure that is flexible, affordable and easy to manage.

The HP Apollo 8000 System, with Mellanox’s ConnectX-3 Pro FDR 56Gb/s
InfiniBand dual-port adapters and SwitchX®-2 FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand, has up to
144 servers per rack and is a 100 percent water-cooled supercomputer with 4X
more teraflops of performance per rack compared to air cooled designs. The
eco-friendly design eliminates up to 3,800 tons of carbon dioxide waste per
year from each data center and the water used to cool the system can be used
as a heat source for facilities, further reducing operating expenses.
