SAN JOSE, Calif. and SINGAPORE, April 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Broadcom Limited (NASDAQ:AVGO), a leading designer, developer and global supplier of a broad range of digital and analog semiconductor connectivity solutions, today announced a new 100G Ethernet multi-host controller product family, the BCM57454 NetXtreme® E-Series, designed for high performance computing, networking and storage applications that include machine learning, network function virtualization (NFV), and enterprise and cloud storage. Expanding upon previous generation 25G/50G Ethernet controllers, the BCM57454 combines a high bandwidth Ethernet controller with a unique set of highly optimized hardware acceleration engines that enhance network performance.
Key Features & Benefits
•100G Controller with Smart Congestion Control Engine for RoCEv2
•TruFlowTM Advanced Flow Processing Engine
•TruManage™ Technology with On-Chip Embedded Agent
“Modern high performance computing, networking and storage applications demand a 100G controller with highly optimized, purpose-built hardware acceleration engines to address network bandwidth demands,” said Ed Redmond, senior vice president and general manager of the Compute and Connectivity Division at Broadcom. “Built upon industry-proven Broadcom Ethernet controller technology with the latest enhancements in congestion control, TruFlow advanced flow processing, and on-chip embedded agent, the BCM57454 is an ideal 100G multi-host Ethernet controller that addresses critical application requirements.”
“Driven by hyperscale cloud, NFV and deep machine learning, 100G Ethernet adapter and controller shipments are forecast to grow from a nascent 40 thousand ports in 2016 to 5 million ports by 2020,” said Seamus Crehan, president of Crehan Research. “With the new NetXtreme E-Series 100G Ethernet controller coupled with its high-density 100G StrataXGS® Tomahawk® Series switch, Broadcom is strongly positioned to capitalize on these opportunities by offering compelling end-to-end solutions that cost-effectively scale network bandwidth capacity to meet the demands of the new applications.”
“With the support for NVIDIA’s GPUDirect RDMA technology, Broadcom’s 100Gb Ethernet controller enables NVIDIA GPU-accelerated clusters to deliver superior performance, scalability and efficiency for HPC, enterprise and deep learning applications,” said Paresh Kharya, Tesla Product Management Lead at NVIDIA. “Direct data transfer between Broadcom’s Ethernet controller and NVIDIA’s Tesla GPU increases bandwidth and minimizes GPU to GPU communication latency across Ethernet fabrics, opening avenues to address new computing challenges.”
“We are glad to see that Broadcom is now supporting RoCE with multi-host on the new 100G Networking Interface Cards (NICs),” said Yuval Bachar, principal engineer for Global Infrastructure Architecture and Strategy at LinkedIn. “This technology allows the industry to build high density server technology in Open19 datacenter infrastructure and many other multi-CPU-socket server solutions in the industry.”
AvailabilityBroadcom has begun sampling the BCM57454 controller in 100G PCIe NIC with production planned for the second half of 2017. Please contact your local Broadcom sales representative for samples and pricing.
