New 400Gbps InfiniBand Switch and Networking Platform Features Secure

NVIDIA Quantum-2 Takes Supercomputing to New Heights, Into the Cloud

NVIDIA has announced NVIDIA Quantum-2, the next generation of its InfiniBand networking platform, which offers the extreme performance, broad accessibility and strong security needed by cloud computing providers and supercomputing centers. 

The most advanced end-to-end networking platform ever built, NVIDIA Quantum-2 is a 400Gbps InfiniBand networking platform that consists of the NVIDIA Quantum-2 switch, the ConnectX-7® network adapter, the BlueField-3® data processing unit (DPU) and all the software that supports the new architecture. 

NVIDIA Quantum-2 includes key features required for demanding workloads running in either arena. With 400Gbps, NVIDIA Quantum-2 InfiniBand doubles the network speed and triples the number of network ports. It accelerates performance by 3x and reduces the need for data center fabric switches by 6x, while cutting data center power consumption and reducing data center space by 7 percent each.
