Ethernet switches are simple: they need to move packets around from port to port based on the attributes of each packet. There are plenty of switch vendors from which to choose. Differentiating in this saturated market is the aspiration of each vendor.
Mellanox Technologies switches are unique in this market. Not just “yet another switch” but a design based on a self-built switching ASIC and a variety of 1RU switches. These switches excel in performance compared to any other switch offered in the market. Being first and (still) the only vendor with a complete end-to-end 40GbE solution, Mellanox provides a complete interconnect solution and the ability to achieve the highest price-performance ratio.
Mellanox puts the customer in the center to provide not only a product but a partnership and highest level of continuous support. This provides customers with the best user experience for their deployments: ranging from few endpoints with lean high availability solutions for top-of-rack connectivity to many hundreds or thousands of servers. This allows for more applications ranging from storage oriented, through virtualized and on to service-oriented solutions based on the high capacity ASICs that runs in our products.
