Atlantic.Net is a global cloud hosting provider that offers Atlantic.Net can now offer customers more robust cloud hosting services through a reliable, adaptable infrastructure, all at a lower cost in comparison to traditional interconnect solutions.
Expensive hardware, overhead costs while scaling, as well as administrative costs can be avoided with Mellanox’s interconnect technologies and thereby reduce costs 32% per application.
By utilizing the iSCSI RDMA Protocol (iSER) implemented in KVM servers over a single converged InfiniBand interconnect adapter, iSER delivers lower latency and is less complex, resulting in lower costs to the user.
LAN and SAN connectivity for VMs on KVM and Atlantic.Net’s management environment is tightly integrated; allowing Atlantic.Net to transparently consolidate LAN, SAN, live migrations and other traffic.
The Bottom Line
By deploying Mellanox’s InfiniBand solution, Atlantic.Net can support high volume and high-performance requirements– on-demand – and offer a service that scales as customers’ needs change and grow. Having built a high performance, reliable and redundant storage infrastructure using off-the-shelf commodity hardware, Atlantic.Net was able to avoid purchasing expensive Fibre Channel storage arrays, saving significant capital expenses per storage system.
