            Ordering Information

            Mellanox ConnectX-3 EN 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet Network Interface Cards (NIC) with PCI Express 3.0 deliver high-bandwidth and industryleading Ethernet connectivity for performance-driven server and storage applications in Enterprise Data Centers, High-Performance Computing, and Embedded environments.

            Clustered databases, web infrastructure, and high frequency trading are just a few applications that will achieve significant throughput and latency
            improvements resulting in faster access, real-time response and more users per server. ConnectX-3 EN improves network performance by increasing available bandwidth while decreasing the associated transport load on the CPU especially in virtualized server environments.

            Compatibility Notes RDMA over Converged Ethernet:
            ConnectX-3 utilizing IBTA RoCE technology provides efficient RDMA services, delivering low-latency and highperformance to bandwidth and latency sensitive
            applications. With link-level interoperability in existing Ethernet infrastructure, Network Administrators can leverage existing data center fabric management solutions.

            Sockets Acceleration:
            Applications utilizing TCP/UDP/IP transport can achieve industryleading throughput over 10 or 40GbE. The hardware- based stateless offload and flow steering engines in ConnectX-3 reduce the CPU overhead of IP packet transport, freeing more processor cycles to work on the application. Sockets acceleration software further increases performance for latency sensitive applications.

            I/O Virtualization:
            ConnectX-3 EN provides dedicated adapter resources and guaranteed isolation and protection for virtual machines (VM) within the server. ConnectX-3 EN gives data center managers better server utilization and LAN and SAN unification while reducing costs, power, and complexity.

            Precision Data Centers:
            ConnectX-3 EN IEEE 1588 precision time protocol circuitry synchronizes the host clock to the data center master clock for accurate data delivery time
            stamping and data center SLA measurements. The hardware-based mechanisms ensure high accuracy and low jitter.

            Storage Acceleration:
            A consolidated compute and storage network achieves significant cost-performance advantages over multi-fabric networks. Standard block and file access protocols can leverage RDMA for high-performance storage access.

            Quality of Service:
            Resource allocation per application or per VM is provided and protected by the advanced QoS supported by ConnectX-3 EN. Service levels for multiple traffic types can be based on IETF DiffServ or IEEE 802.1p/Q allowing system administrators to prioritize traffic by application, virtual machine, or protocol. This powerful combination of QoS and prioritization provides the ultimate fine-grained control of traffic – ensuring that applications run smoothly in today’s complex environments.
