  5. 5. © 2013 Mellanox Technologies 5- Mellanox Confidential - Cloud 2.0 Technologies – Overlay Networks  Challenge: Number of VLANs limits cloud scalability, resource mobility and isolation within the cloud  Solution: NVGRE or VXLAN for “floating” virtual domains on top of a data center interconnect  Benefit: Application can run anywhere, and receive real time resources exactly as needed Picture Source: VMware Virtualization-Aware Interconnect
  6. 6. © 2013 Mellanox Technologies 6 Physical Switch Overlay Networks  Overlay Networks provide a method for “creating” virtual domains • Enable large scale multi-tenant isolation  Large cloud environments have adopted emerging Overlay Network protocols • VXLAN and NVGRE  Currently available NICs do not support Overlay Network hardware offload engines • Performance is limited • CPU overhead is high • Number of tenants is not scalable / limited Server VM VM VM VM Server VM VM VM VM Server VM VM VM VM Domain1 Domain2 Domain3
  7. 7. © 2013 Mellanox Technologies 7 Introducing ConnectX-3 Pro  A new addition to the ConnectX-3 network adapter family • Targeting cloud computing environments  Provides HW offload engines for Overlay Network protocols • Support for VXLAN and NVGRE • Reduces CPU overhead  ConnectX-3 Pro is HW and SW compatible with ConnectX-3 • Drop replacement • Stable and field proven SW stack
