ConnectX®-4 Lx Ethernet Adapter Card

10/25/40/50 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter Cards supporting Multi-Host™ Technology, RDMA, Overlay Networks Encapsulation/Decapsulation and more
ConnectX-4 Lx EN Network Controller with 1/10/25/40/50Gb/s Ethernet connectivity addresses virtualized infrastructure challenges, delivering best-in-class and highest performance to various demanding markets and applications. Providing true hardware-based I/O isolation with unmatched scalability and efficiency, achieving the most cost-effective and flexible solution for Web 2.0, Cloud, data analytics, database, and storage platforms.
ConnectX-4 Lx EN provides an unmatched combination of 1, 10, 25, 40, and 50GbE bandwidth, sub-microsecond latency and a 75 million packets per second message rate. It includes native hardware support for RDMA over Converged Ethernet, Ethernet stateless offload engines, Overlay Networks,and GPUDirect® Technology.
The Open Compute Project (OCP) mission is to develop and specify the most cost-efficient, energy-efficient and scalable enterprise and Web 2.0 data centers. Mellanox ConnectX-4 Lx EN OCP adapter cards deliver leading Ethernet connectivity for performance-driven server and storage applications in Web 2.0, Enterprise Data Centers and Cloud environments. The OCP Mezzanine adapter form factor is designed to mate into OCP servers. ConnectX-4 Lx EN for Open Compute Project (OCP) improves network performance by increasing available bandwidth while decreasing the associated transport load on the CPU especially in virtualized server environments. Moreover, ConnectX-4 Lx EN introduces the new Multi-Host technology, which enables a new innovative rack design that achieves maximum CAPEX and OPEX savings without compromising on network performance.
