We are happy to join the Network Intelligence Alliance, an industry organization created for collaboration among the Network Economy’s technology providers. Through our participation in the Alliance, Mellanox will help develop and market innovative solutions that further improve networking solutions for Enterprise, Cloud providers and Telecom Operators.
Using Mellanox’s low-latency, CPU efficient 10/40GbE NICs and switches, customers can deploy an embedded virtual switch (eSwitch) to run virtual machine traffic with bare-metal performance, provide hardened security and QoS, all with simpler management through Software Defined Networking (SDN) and OpenFlow APIs. The hardware-based security and isolation features in our 10/40GbE solutions can enable wider adoption of multi-tenant clouds while maintaining user service level agreements (SLA). In addition, utilizing SR-IOV to bypass the Hypervisor, customers will gain more VMs when virtualizing Network Functions on their cloud and data center server and storage infrastructure deployments.
In a world that now depends and runs on networks—accurate visibility and precise tracking of data crossing networks have become crucial to the availability, performance and security of applications and services. The growing complexity of IP transactions, the explosion of mobile applications, and the mainstream adoption of cloud computing surpass the capabilities of conventional tools to improve how networks operate, expand services, and cope with cybersecurity. Just like Business Intelligence solutions emerged to unlock information hidden in the enterprise, Network Intelligence technology is an emerging category of technology to reveal the critical details of the data locked inside network traffic and transactions.
Mellanox is excited to be a part of this great group and we are looking forward to collaborating with other members.
