The Ultimate InfiniBand FDR Adapter, in Supermicro Super I/O Module (SIOM) Form Factor

The AOC-MHIBF-m1Q2G is the most powerful InfiniBand controller in the IT market. In small form factor SIOM, available as part of an integrated solution with Supermicro servers, it provides both InfiniBand FDR 56Gbps and 40Gbps Ethernet as well as remote server management through a dedicated Gigabit LAN controller. Based on Mellanox® ConnectX-3 Pro and Intel® i350 controllers, it provides the highest performing and most flexible interconnect solution for Supermicro servers in Enterprise Data Centers and High-Performance Computing deployments.

This product is only available through Supermicro.
