Here at Mellanox the Hackathon season has just started. We had our 7th company hackathon focusing on Security & Performance. Next week we will hold the first Networking & RDMA Hackathon in Tel Aviv, which will be open up great opportunities to write software that scales and performs better using advanced networking technologies. Additionally, we will host an Open Hackathon in our US sites this upcoming January.
We love Hackathons because they bring innovations to the company. We believe in entrepreneurship of our employees and their ability to drive great ideas into our products. When it comes to software, people can prototype amazing things just within 48 hours of coding. Then, we work closely with our partners and customers and integrate the new technologies into our products.
For this hackathon, we focused on Performance and Security. Performance is our bread and butter, and we challenged the team to take it to the extreme. Datacenter Security is getting more and more traction every day, and we start by providing the best secured network equipment, crypto acceleration and ability to detect anomalies within the network.
We had great innovation on the performance front including tools for visibility, through world record low latency, improved burst processing, faster software update and better tools, and more.
On the security front we also had great projects, making the InfiniBand and RoCE network more secure, crypto offload and more.
Looking forward for more successful hackathons!
