Red Hat Enterprise MRG and Mellanox ConnectX-2 10GigE NICs Achieve New Performance Levels for Messaging, Realtime and Grid Applications

Red Hat and Mellanox announced today results from work that we've been doing together to enable RDMA over Ethernet with Red Hat Enterprise MRG Messaging on top of Mellanox's ConnectX-2 cards:

Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, and Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX; TASE: MLNX), a leading supplier of high-performance, end-to-end connectivity solutions for data center servers and storage systems, today announced that Red Hat Enterprise MRG with the open Advanced Messaging Queuing Protocol (AMQP) standard and Red Hat Enterprise Linux achieved Ethernet-based data center fabric performance, delivering a 42 percent reduction in latency using Mellanox ConnectX-2 with RDMA over Ethernet (RoE), with throughputs up to 1.2 million acknowledged messages per second, with latencies in the 10 microseconds range in tests conducted by Red Hat.

We'll also be presenting details of these results at the Red Hat Summit this week in the sessions:

Additionally, Mellanox will be highlighting these results this week at their booth at SIFMA.
