Mellanox and Los Alamos National Laboratory Join Forces to Develop Ultra-Large Scale Mission-Centric Computing Infrastructure


The Integration of Mellanox In-Network Computing Acceleration Engines
with Los Alamos National Laboratory Data Discovery Applications will be
a Key Enabler for Efficient Ultra-Scale Computing

Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ:MLNX), a leading supplier of
high-performance, end-to-end smart interconnect solutions for data
center servers and storage systems, today announced a collaborative
effort with Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) to develop large
scale, mission centric computing infrastructure. The organizations will
focus on leveraging Mellanox In-Network Computing acceleration engines
to enable data discovery at scale for the lab's current and next
generation applications. The collaborative development will be done
under the Efficient Mission Centric Computing Consortium (EMC3),
centered at LANL's Ultra-Scale Systems Research Center (USRC). The EMC3
consortium's mission is to investigate efficient ultra-scale computing
and networking architectures, applications and environments, in order to
provide the most efficient infrastructure needed for the US Industry and
national security.

"Los Alamos's relationship with Mellanox goes back a decade or more.
This close collaboration with EMC3 is expected to start bearing
performance results in the near and longer terms," said Gary Grider,
Division Director for HPC Computing at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

"We are designing supercomputer systems today that will be deployed in
the coming decade. These systems will enable us to expand and refine our
research capabilities to enhance data discoveries and increase our
overall efficiencies in our mission applications," said Stephen Poole,
Chief Architect for Computing at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
"Intelligent interconnect technologies and the ability to leverage the
network components as an integral part of the ultra-scale, distributed
processing infrastructure are going to be key components for maintaining
our national leadership."

"In-Network Computing technologies are critical to analyze the
exponential growth of data to reach data discoveries in a scalable,
efficient, secure and real time manner," said Gilad Shainer, vice
president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies. "We are excited about
the collaboration opportunities and development results of the
integrated team members from LANL and Mellanox."
