Fabric

CORNELIS OMNI-PATH EXPRESS ACCELERATED HOST FABRIC ADAPTERS

 

Cornelis Omni-Path Express Accelerated Host Fabric Adapters are designed to provide a perfect semantic match between the requirements of real-world HPC applications and the scale-out fabric, maximizing performance at scale.

Cornelis Omni-Path Express adapters deliver scalable bandwidth in increments of 100 Gbps, 160 million MPI messages per second, and sub-microsecond MPI latency. Other advanced performance features include dispersive routing, congestion control, a unique sub-link layer architecture that enables Packet Integrity Protection (zero latency protection against bit transmission errors), and Virtual Fabrics support


CORNELIS OMNI-PATH EXPRESS EDGE SWITCHES

 

Cornelis Omni-Path Express Edge Switches are very versatile, as the only switch in small clusters, the first-tier switch in larger clusters, and the network core in intermediate clusters.

Omni-Path Express Edge Switches enhance application performance through delivery of key efficiency features, including dynamic adaptive routing and congestion control, complemented by a unique sub-link layer architecture that enables Packet Integrity Protection (zero latency protection against bit transmission errors) and Traffic Flow Optimization.


CORNELIS OMNI-PATH EXPRESS DIRECTOR CLASS SWITCHES

 

Cornelis Omni-Path Express Director Class Switches are ideal for interconnecting mid-sized clusters and for providing the core of large clusters.

With enterprise-class reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) features, Cornelis Director Class Switches provide up to 288 ports in 7U and up to 1152 ports in 20U, delivering full bisectional bandwidth per port with sub-340 ns latency. These switches incorporate advanced technologies that maximize cluster scalability and message rate while minimizing average and tail latency critical to application performance.


CORNELIS OMNI-PATH EXPRESS GATEWAYS

 

Cornelis Omni-Path Express Gateways are part of an end-to-end product family providing purpose-built fabrics for High Performance Computing (HPC), High Performance Data Analytics (HPDA), and Artificial Intelligence (AI) that deliver high performance with breakthrough value. The solution leverages investments in existing storage systems and network resources requiring access to a Cornelis Networks Omni-Path Express fabric.

Cornelis Omni-Path Express Gateways offer multiple connectivity options to enable bridging to Ethernet networks and InfiniBand fabrics. Storage systems deployed with either interface can now be easily connected to an Omni-Path Express HPC/HPDA/AI fabric with a cost-effective turnkey appliance. Other Ethernet- or InfiniBand-enabled systems can also leverage this capability to connect to Omni-Path Express fabrics through the Gateway


CORNELIS OMNI-PATH EXPRESS CABLES

Cornelis offers the lowest cost, highest reliability, lowest power consumption cables for purpose-built high performance networking. Designed for maximum performance, Cornelis Omni-Path Express cables deliver high bandwidth, low latency host-to-switch and inter-switch link connectivity.

Cornelis Direct Attach Copper cables (DACs) provide low cost, intra-rack connectivity between hosts and local edge switches of up to 3 meters with near zero latency and power consumption.

Cornelis Active Optical Cables (AOCs) deliver the lowest cost inter-rack connectivity for medium size director-only clusters up to multi-tier exascale systems, and are available in QSFP-QSFP and QSFP-DD splitter cable formats of up to 100 meters that enable connectivity to the network core.
