Mellanox Announces Driver Support For ConnectX-4 & RoCE For vSphere Discussion

Recommended Posts

The new vSphere release uses the ConnectX-4 offload engines to accelerate VXLAN virtual networks and VXLAN tunnel endpoint gateways. On that, benchmarks have been ran showing VDI over 25Gb/s are over two times as efficient as running them over 10Gb/s. Along with this, Mellanox also points out that RoCE improves storage access times by up to ten times, while using 50% less CPU resources compared to traditional transport. Mellanox’s ConnectX-4 supports VMware vSphere clouds with Ethernet networks operating at speeds up to 100Gb/s. Mellanox states that both compute and storage traffic can be ran over a single wire, improving both the ROI of HCI and enabling multicore CPUs to achieve their full capacity to run applications.
