InfiniBand Accelerates Majority of New Systems on TOP500 Supercomputer List

Connecting 2.5 Times More New Systems versus Competition

EDR InfiniBand Solutions Grew 2.5X in Six Months

Accelerating the Fastest Supercomputer in the World

Providing 1.7X Higher ROI for Petascale Platforms

FRANKFURT, Germany–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ:MLNX), a leading
supplier of end-to-end interconnect solutions for data center servers
and storage systems, today announced that InfiniBand solutions
accelerate the majority of the new TOP500 systems deployed in 2017, two
and half times more systems than OmniPath and nearly three times more
versus other proprietary interconnect products. InfiniBand accelerates
60 percent of the total HPC systems on the list and 48 percent of the
Petaflop infrastructures, an increase from 45 percent as reported in the
November 2016 TOP500 list. Moreover, InfiniBand solutions connect
world-leading Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning platforms,
including the newly listed platform from Facebook. This demonstrates the
strong adoption of InfiniBand and its leading market share in
high-performance computing and artificial intelligence. Mellanox
continues to connect the fastest supercomputer on the list, delivering
highest scalability, performance and efficiency. Mellanox Ethernet
solutions also connect several of the 10 Gigabit Ethernet, all of the 40
Gigabit Ethernet systems and the first 100 Gigabit Ethernet system.

“InfiniBand’s In-Networking Computing offload advantage delivers the
highest applications performance, scalability and robustness, enabling
users to maximize their data center return on investment. In just six
months, EDR InfiniBand systems have more than doubled on the TOP500
list, and InfiniBand was chosen by far more end-users compared to a
proprietary offering, maintaining its market share. In addition,
InfiniBand adoption continues to ramp up in Artificial Intelligence and
Deep Learning platforms, becoming the natural choice for these
solutions,” said Eyal Waldman, president and CEO of Mellanox
Technologies. “We are also happy to see more of our 10, 40 and 100G
Ethernet solutions on the TOP500 list, resulting in 192 systems using
Mellanox interconnect solutions. Finally, we plan to release our next
generation 200Gb/s HDR InfiniBand solutions later this year, further
increasing the technology advantage of Mellanox, for high-performance
computing, cloud, Web2.0, database, deep learning and compute and
storage platforms.”

Published twice a year and publicly available at:,
the TOP500 list ranks the world’s most powerful computer systems
according to the Linpack benchmark rating system. Key takeaways from the
list include:

  • Mellanox accelerates the fastest supercomputer on the list
  • InfiniBand most used HPC interconnect in first half of 2017,
    connecting 2.5X more new end-user projects versus Omni-Path, and 3X
    more versus other proprietary products
  • Mellanox connects nearly 39 percent of overall TOP500 systems (192
    systems, InfiniBand and Ethernet)
  • InfiniBand connects 36 percent of the total TOP500 systems (179
  • InfiniBand connects 60 percent of the HPC TOP500 systems
  • InfiniBand accelerates 48 percent of the Petascale systems
  • EDR InfiniBand installations grew 2.5X in six months
  • InfiniBand provides 1.7X higher system efficiency for Petascale
    systems versus OmniPath
  • Mellanox connects all of 40G Ethernet systems
  • Mellanox connects the first 100G Ethernet system on the list
  • InfiniBand is the most used Interconnect on the TOP500 for TOP100,
    TOP200, and TOP300 systems
  • InfiniBand is the preferred interconnect for Artificial Intelligence
    and Deep Learning systems
  • Mellanox solutions enable highest ROI for Machine Learning,
    High-Performance, Cloud, Storage, Big Data and more applications
