Double Your Network File System (NFS) Performance with RDMA-Enabled Networking

Network File System (NFS) is a ubiquitous component of most modern clusters. It was originally designed as a work-group filesystem, making a central file store available to and shared among a number of client servers. Later, as NFS became more popular, mission-critical applications were running over NFS and high-speed access to storage became paramount, higher […]


Mellanox Spectrum for Microsoft Azure SONiC

Everyone agrees that open solutions are the best solutions, but for Ethernet switches, there are very few truly open operating systems – until now.  Microsoft has open sourced the network operating system (NOS) they use in Azure, SONiC (Software for Open Networking in the Cloud), created the community, and posted it on Github. SONiC is a […]


E8 Storage uses Mellanox’s Ethernet Storage Fabric in Record Breaking Benchmark!

The following is a guest blog by E8 Storage. There’s nothing like an established, peer reviewed benchmark such as SPEC SFS®2014 to prove what you’ve been saying all along: E8 Storage delivers high performance and low latency at a fraction of the cost of competing solutions. This means that data-intensive applications can rely on E8 […]
