Flex System IB6132 2-port FDR InfiniBand Adapter
Lenovo Press Product Guide
The Flex System™ IB6132 2-port FDR InfiniBand Adapter delivers low latency and high bandwidth for
performance-driven server clustering applications in enterprise data centers, high-performance computing
(HPC), and embedded environments. The adapter is designed to operate at InfiniBand FDR speeds (56
Gbps or 14 Gbps per lane). Clustered databases, parallelized applications, transactional services, and
high-performance embedded I/O applications potentially achieve significant performance improvements,
helping to reduce completion time and lower the cost per operation. The Flex System IB6132 2-port FDR
InfiniBand Adapter simplifies network deployment by consolidating clustering, communications, and
management I/O, and helps provide enhanced performance in virtualized server environments.

Did you know?
Mellanox InfiniBand adapters deliver industry-leading bandwidth with ultra-low, sub-microsecond latency
for performance-driven server clustering applications. Combined with the IB6131 InfiniBand Switch, your
organization can achieve efficient computing by off-loading from the CPU protocol processing and data
movement overhead, such as Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) and Send/Receive semantics,
allowing more processor power for the application. Advanced acceleration technology enables more than
90M Message Passing Interface (MPI) messages per second, making it a highly scalable adapter
delivering cluster efficiency and scalability to tens-of-thousands of nodes.
