Building an enterprise ready cloud is a complex task and requires appropriate sizing and integration of hardware and software to optimize usability, scalability, performance and cost efficiency. For this reason many attempts to shift to modern cloud architectures fail. The CloudX platform incorporates virtualized compute, scale-out storage, with high-bandwidth and low-latency interconnect. This integration not only significantly reduces the risk of deployment but also maximizes ROI and lowers TCO.

Choose Your Preferred Brand:

CloudX reference architecture is delivered as a complete solution with hardware, software and support through Mellanox qualified partners.

NVIDIA Networking NFV Solution

Communication Service Providers (CSPs) are embracing Network Function Virtualization (NFV) to leverage virtualization and cloud technologies to achieve agile service delivery and scalability. This transformation will empower CSPs to improve customer satisfaction, cost efficiency, and growth momentum, and ultimately excel in the ever-changing competitive landscape.

As a leader in improving cloud efficiency the Efficient Virtual Network (EVN), NVIDIA Networking helps CSPs deploy NFV with performance, reliability and scalability, achieving agility and elasticity essential for new service creation and cost optimization without compromising throughput, latency, or high availability.

The NVIDIA Networking NFV portfolio includes Ethernet server network I/O cards, switches, cables and software that are designed to be open and programmable. Together, these products enable virtualized network functions to run at bare metal speed in a virtualized and software-defined infrastructure, so CSPs get the best of both worlds. Acceleration solutions for fast packet processing include DPDK and ASAP². NVIDIA Networking is also very active in the Open Compute Project, Open Ethernet and is part of the HP OpenNFV Eco-system.

NVIDIA Networking's Software Defined Networking (SDN)

Traditional networking equipment gear is dominated by a few large vendors with proprietary hardware and software delivered as a monolithic “black box” – and without the opportunity to extend or innovate. Software Defined Networking (SDN) is fundamentally changing the way networks work. At the core of SDN is the concept of decoupling the two fundamental functions that networks must perform:

  1. Decisions on where traffic should be sent (the control plane)
  2. The actual forwarding of traffic to the selected destination (the data plane)

This separation enables network architects to strategically decide how traffic flows throughout the network, and to centralize this logic into a programmable interface that can be extended and tailored to meet customer requirements. For more than a decade, NVIDIA Networking has been implementing these concepts in practice in its InfiniBand products and is uniquely positioned to deliver this same functionality with SDN; thereby providing data centers with a mature infrastructure for flexible, scalable and dynamic networks. Today, Mellanox builds on the extensive knowledge gained from building hundreds of high performance and scalable networks with InfiniBand, and now provides its customers with SDN networks on Ethernet as well. Mellanox is unique in the SDN world–delivering innovative technologies such as OpenFlow interfaces on both NICs and switches, provided on an open architecture.

NVIDIA Networking's End-to-End solution for SDN networks is built as an open, industry standard platform supporting a wide range of applications and network management tasks. The innovative solution incorporates different techniques for intra and inter server communications, provisioning, QoS and vNIC management. For example, certain requests can be optimally managed by the local network adapters or alternatively requests may be handled more conventionally by the switch - all leveraging standard OpenFlow protocols.
