PNY Technologies has enhanced its partnership with Nvidia, extending its solutions portfolio into accelerating compute and cloud data. As part of this, it now has available to order the latest Nvidia networking products, including ConnectX SmartNICs, Ethernet switching solutions, InfiniBand Switches and more.

The Nvidia ConnectX family of smart network interface cards (SmartNICs) and InfiniBand adapters offer advanced hardware offloads and accelerations. ConnectX Ethernet SmartNICs and InfiniBand adapters enable high ROI and low TCO for hyperscale, public and private clouds, storage, machine learning, AI, big data and telco platforms.

Powered by Nvidia ASAP2 (Accelerated Switch and Packet Processing Technology, ConnectX SmartNICs accelerate network performance while reducing the CPU overhead of Internet Protocol packet transport, freeing more processor cycles to run applications. They are said to deliver efficient, high-performance remote direct-memory access services to bandwidth- and latency- sensitive applications, while offloading and accelerating encryption and decryption at speeds up to 200Gb/s.

The Nvidia Ethernet Switch platform delivers cloud-scale efficiency to data centres of all sizes. The Nvidia Cumulus Operational model was built for automating networks using a NetDevOps approach which starts with a digital twin network, hosted on Nvidia AIR, where security compliance, provisioning, monitoring and automation can be validated prior to deploying a physical network. The Nvidia Spectrum switch platforms come in form factors fit for any workload, optimised to deliver high levels of network performance and visibility. Providing telemetry collection and fabric validation, Nvidia NetQ validates digital twins as well as physical networks by leveraging hardware-accelerated telemetry.

Nvidia InfiniBand switches, meanwhile, provide high performance and smart in-network computing acceleration engines, enabling world-leading supercomputing platforms. They deliver a complete chassis and fabric management that enables managers to build higly cost-effective and scalable switch fabrics ranging from small clusters up to tens of thousands of nodes. Features include adaptive routing, congestion control and quality of service.

Finally, the LinkX family of cables and transceivers provides a line of 10, 25, 40, 50, 100, 200 and 400GbE in Ethernet and EDR, HDR and NDR in InfiniBand products for cloud, HPC, Web 2.0, enterprise, telco, storage, AI and data centre applications.

LinkX cables and transceivers are often used to link top-of-rack switches downwards to network adapters in Nvidia GPU and CPU servers and storage, and upwards in switch-to-switch applications throughout the network infrastructure.

“The high-performance computing, cloud, Web 2.0, machine learning, data analytics, and storage markets are driving increasing demands for more computing power, efficiency and scalability,” said Steven Kaner, senior vice president of sales and marketing, PNY. “To meet these needs, PNY is proud to partner with Nvidia to deliver complete end-to-end solutions supporting Ethernet and InfiniBand networking technologies. This exciting new arena will allow PNY to comprehensively support our partner ecosystem and customers as they scale out and scale up their data centre networking infrastructure to deliver the solutions only elastic and high-performance data centres can offer.”
