ConnectX-3 Pro Single/Dual-Port Adapter with Virtual Protocol Interconnect

ConnectX-3 Pro adapter cards with Virtual Protocol Interconnect (VPI), supporting InfiniBand and Ethernet connectivity with hardware offload engines to Overlay Networks ("Tunnelling"), provide the highest performing and most flexible interconnect solution for PCO Express Gen3 servers used in public and private clouds, enterprise data centres, and high performance computing.


Public and private cloud clustered databases, parallel processing, transactional services, and high-performance embedded I/O applications will achieve significant performance improvements resulting in reduced completion time and lower cost per operation. ConnectX-3 Pro with VPI also simplifies system development by serving multiple fabrics with one hardware design.
