Chelsio Communications, Inc. Key Developments

Chelsio Communications, Inc. Announces Support for NVIDIA Tesla Accelerated Computing Platform

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

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.

Chelsio Communications Launches New Product Offering, Terminator Core

Chelsio Communications announced that it has launched a new product offering, the Terminator Core, a configurable kit for building high performance Converged Ethernet solutions. The Chelsio Terminator Core IP is built around a configurable, high performance Ethernet packet processing engine with RDMA, iSCSI, FCoE, and advanced server networking features, and leverages a full suite of software, in-boxed within the major server operating systems. A highly efficient and scalable design, Terminator Core is suitable for a wide range of System-on-a-Chip (SoC) network connectivity solutions, with multi-port support from 1 to 100Gbps. At the heart of the Terminator line of field proven Network Interface Card (NIC) controllers, Chelsio's Core architecture is designed for low latency, high capacity cut-through processing, minimum cycles per byte (CPB) and maximum memory efficiency. Terminator Core is the culmination of more than a decade of expertise with high performance network protocol implementation, and five generations of silicon proven design. Terminator Core offers support for a complete suite of storage and high performance computing networking protocols. Integrating the Core within an SoC design provides a drop-in server grade network-managed and hyper-virtualized Ethernet controller with a complete protocol stack. The Core can also be configured with an embedded edge switch capable of flexible packet switching and replication, with access control support, and an integrated ccNUMA controller that extends cache coherence to multiple nodes. The Terminator Core architecture can attach using a single ACE or PCI interface on the system bus side, and one or more ports on the network side. With a proven firmware and software stack that can operate on an ARM, Power or other embedded CPU based SoC system, the Core can be configured to support a comprehensive set of offload networking, storage and compute protocols, including a complete list of stateless offloads: Large Send Offload (LSO) and Large Receive Offload (LRO). Checksum offloads for TCP/UDP over IPv4/IPv6. CRC offloads for RDMA, FCoE and iSCSI. Load balancing -- RSS. Drop/Steer filters and NAT offload. NVGRE/VXLAN/GENEVE offload. Timestamping, routing, tracing. The Core can also be configured to support one or more of the stateful offloads: iSCSI -- PDU and full offload with T10-DIX. FCoE -- PDU and full offload with T10-DIX. iWARP RDMA over Ethernet. TCP/IP and UDP/IP sockets.
