Chelsio Demonstrates 40GbE iSCSI Performance
Aug 11 15
Chelsio Communications, Inc. announced it is demonstrating the benefits of its T5 line of protocol offload adapters that make them the best performing 40GbE iSCSI HBAs in the market. Chelsio will be holding this demonstration at the Flash Memory Summit in Santa Clara, CA. Showcasing the iSCSI hardware offload capabilities of Chelsio's T5 40Gbps Unified Wire adapters, the demonstration will show how all-flash and hybrid storage array OEMs can easily enable such arrays with iSCSI target performance that is fully compatible with the existing iSCSI ecosystem and seamlessly supports the routability, scalability and reach advantages of iSCSI.
Chelsio Communications, Inc. Announces Support for NVIDIA Tesla Accelerated Computing Platform
Jun 15 15
Chelsio Communications, Inc. announced that its T5 iWARP RDMA over Ethernet adapters now fully support NVIDIA® GPUDirectTM RDMA technology. Production-level T5 iWARP driver software for NVIDIA Tesla® GPU accelerators is available immediately. NVIDIA GPUDirect RDMA is a key component of the NVIDIA Tesla Accelerated Computing Platform, the platform for accelerating data analytics, deep learning and scientific computing. GPUDirect RDMA eliminates CPU bandwidth and latency bottlenecks using direct data transfers between GPUs and other PCIe devices, bypassing the host processor and memory. With its full support for NVIDIA GPUDirect and NVIDIA GPU Tesla accelerators, Chelsio is delivering a high-performance Ethernet connectivity solution to address customers' most demanding data analytics and scientific applications.
Chelsio Expands Terminator 5 ASIC Product Line
Jan 16 15
Chelsio Communications, Inc. announced the launch of four new SKUs in its Terminator 5 (T5) ASIC product line, the fifth generation of Chelsio's high performance Ethernet silicon technology and a recognized leader in performance, capabilities and features. T5 is a highly integrated, hyper-virtualized 10/40GbE controller with full offload support of a complete Unified Wire solution comprising NIC, TOE, iWARP RDMA, iSCSI, FCoE, NAT, NVGRE and VXLAN support, Security and Filtering, and Traffic Analytics and Management. T5 provides no-compromise performance with high packet processing capacity, sub-microsecond hardware latency and high bandwidth, limited only by the PCIe Gen3 bus. Furthermore, it scales to true 40 Gigabit line rate operation from a single TCP connection to thousands of connections, and allows simultaneous low latency and high bandwidth operation multiple physical channels through the ASIC. The new SKUs expand the reach of T5 ASICs into the Datacenter and Cloud scale applications. Chelsio is announcing the immediate availability of the following products: T5ASIC10G - 4x10Gb with complete feature-set. T5ASIC40G - 2x40Gb or 4x10Gb with complete feature-set. T5ASIC10G-SO - 4x10Gb with stateless offload only. T5ASIC40G-SO - 2x40Gb or 4x10Gb with stateless offload only. All products can be used in single chip configuration, without external memories, to provide full server adapter NIC functionality, including traffic management and QoS, filtering, load balancing, and NAT. A unified software suite supports all the 4 SKUs, and is available in source form, without a license fee. All 4 products are pin compatible with each other and with the currently shipping T5 ASIC. Given the high integration of T5, the ability to concurrently run all the different protocols at performance levels, and the rich feature set that addresses all the key Ethernet market segments, the silicon enables OEMs to converge on a single vendor for all their connectivity needs, with price-optimized products to match the different requirements for each. Designed for high performance clustering, storage and data networking, T5 enables fabric consolidation by simultaneously offloading TCP/UDP/IP sockets, RDMA and storage traffic at wire speed, thereby allowing InfiniBand and FibreChannel applications to run unmodified and concurrently over standard Ethernet networks. By eliminating the need for InfiniBand or FibreChannel adapters, cabling, switches and gateways, T5 offers tremendous cost and operational savings. With a specific design focus on low latency and small packet processing performance, T5 also enables a new performance milestone for high frequency trading and other latency sensitive applications. Some key features of the ASIC: PCI Express v3.0 x8 host interface. 2xDDR-3 memory interfaces. 4x10G/1G or 2x40G Ethernet ports. Designed for very low latency, high bandwidth and high packet processing rate. NIC/TOE/iWARP RDMA/iSCSI/FCoE/NAT offload. TOE/iWARP RDMA/iSCSI/FCoE port-to-port, and adapter-to-adapter failover. SR-IOV 8PF/128VF + NVGRE/VXLAN, 802.1Qbg/802.1Qbr network virtualization. Integrated OpenFlow ready virtual Ethernet switch. T10-DIF/DIX flexible end-to-end protection support for both FCoE and iSCSI. Filtering, Classification, Traffic Management, and Traffic Capture offload.
