Clustered databases, web infrastructure, and high frequency trading are just a few applications that will achieve significant throughput and latency improvements resulting in faster access, real-time response and more users per server. ConnectX-3 EN improves network performance by increasing available bandwidth while decreasing the associated transport load on the CPU especially in virtualized server environments.
ConnectX-3 is well suited for blade server and LAN on Motherboard (LOM) designs. Its integrated PHYs, and minimal additional external component requirements were designed for a small PCB footprint. It also has an array of power saving features with real-time monitors that lower total system power usage.
