I am excited to introduce a new addition to the ConnectX family the ConnectX-3 Pro! Targeting cloud computing the ConnectX-3 Pro enables the next generation of clouds in terms of scale, mobility and serviceability by enabling HW offload engines for VXLAN and NVGRE.

 

The ConnectX-3 Pro is the world’s first adapter that has HW offload engines for VXLAN and NVGRE enabling line rate performance and reducing CPU overhead while running Overlay Network protocols.
