Visit Mellanox at VMworld

Are you planning to come to San Francisco and attend VMworld (August 31 – September 3)? Come see Mellanox Technologies at booth (#2220) where will be showcasing our industry-leading, end-to-end 40Gb/s and 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity products.

Mellanox will also be hosting a live demonstration of Intalio’s Intalio|Cloud Appliance, a single rack all the hardware and software required for building a true enterprise-class private cloud computing platform. The hardware is made of standard components using HP BladeSystem blade servers and enclosures, Solid State Drives (SSD) for all database storage, and Mellanox InfiniBand interconnect technology to effectively connect them all together. Using InfiniBand, the Intalio|Cloud Appliance benefits from a unified networking fabric, removing the need for deploying and managing multiple networking technologies such as Ethernet and Fibre Channel, thereby reducing networking hardware acquisition costs by up to 50% and network management costs by up to 30%, while boosting performance.

Have a moment for a 10-minute presentation? We have the full day scheduled with a variety of presentations from leading and new innovative companies such as HP, Xsigo, Intalio, RNA Networks, and the OpenFabrics Alliance, as well as ongoing presentations from Mellanox on several new product announcements that will be made during the conference.

Breaking the Cloud “I/O Barrier”

Mellanox and LINBIT just announced a collaboration with Logicworks.

Together, the companies are working to develop a high-performance replication system for Logicworks’ customers. LINBIT DRBD open source technology combined with the InfiniBand fabric from Mellanox will lower costs and make it possible to achieve unprecedented levels of input/output (I/O) performance, leading to improved cloud-based storage management and disaster recovery capabilities. The adoption of InfiniBand for the cloud-based system will provide Logicworks’ customers with the unparalleled performance that is critical for hosting latency sensitive applications.

“By utilizing both LINBIT’s DRBD technology and Mellanox’s InfiniBand interconnects, Logicworks’ customers will be able to take their cloud-based applications to the next level,” said Bart Grantham, R&D vice president, Logicworks. “We are eager to build on our relationship with LINBIT and excited to be among the first in the industry to offer such a solution to our customers.”
