Exxact To Offer Latest Nvidia Networking Solutions2

The Nvidia Quantum-2 IB networking platform enables performance, broad accessibility, and security for cloud computing and supercomputing data centers.

What makes Quantum-2 stand out from the previous gen is the new switch that delivers port density with 64 ports of 400Gb/s (or 128 ports of 200Gb/s) connectivity.

It also features 2 updated networking endpoint options: the Nvidia BlueField-3 data processing unit (DPU) and the ConnectX-7 network adapter. ConnectX-7 doubles the data rate of its predecessor, as well as increases performance benefits with RDMA, GPUDirect Storage, GPUDirect RDMA, and In-Network Computing. BlueField-3 offers 16×64-bit Arm CPUs to offload, accelerate and isolate the data center infrastructure stack, which accelerates application performance, enhances data center security, streamlines operations and reduces TCO.

Also updated is Scalable Hierarchical Aggregation and Reduction Protocol v3 (SHARPv3), which allows learning training operations to be offloaded and accelerated by the networking hardware, resulting in 32x more acceleration for AI applications compared with the previous version.

Exxact is excited to soon offer NVIDIA’s latest gen of Quantum IB networking solutions to complement our expansive line of NVIDIA-Certified HPC and deep learning servers,” said Andrew Nelson, VP, technology, Exxact. “Users will be able to address the infrastructure needs of the most demanding applications and experience a significant boost in data center performance, as well as a completely centralized management that supports most popular cluster topologies, such as Fat Tree, DragonFly+, and Torus.

The most challenging problems in the world will be solved by increasingly complex HPC systems that expand humanity’s understanding and deliver countless benefits to society,” said Gilad Shainer, SVP, networking, Nvidia Corp. “The NvidiaQuantum-2 IB platform equips next-gen HPC and AI systems with the extreme performance demanded by innovative applications and workloads to supercharge breakthrough exploration.”

Nvidia Ethernet Networking is also available with SmartNICs that utilize BlueField-2 with up to 200Gb/s of Ethernet connectivity for modern GPU-accelerated workloads, Ethernet switches with speeds from 10 to 400Gb/s, and LinkX Ethernet direct attach copper (DAC) cables, active optical cables (AOCs), and optical transceivers that meet or exceed all of the IEEE 802.3xx industry standards for 1/10/25/50/100Gb/s products.

The Quantum-2 IB networking platform will be available soon.
