Several weeks ago, I received an email encouraging Mellanox employees in the United States to join the Global Corporate Challenge (GCC). I almost filed the email in the “Other stuff from people” folder, by way of sheer coincidence, has a little trash can icon next to it.
But, then I paused.
I really should move more. I can admit it. I just don’t move as much as I should. A few (okay, more than a few) years of working in the marketing field has caused me to adopt a sedentary lifestyle that can’t be good for my health. Even two-times-motherhood hasn’t pushed me off the desk chair.

Accelerating Applications to Cloud using OpenStack-based Hyper-convergence
Presenters: Kevin Deierling (@TechSeerKD) & John Kim (@Tier1Storage)
CROC is the number one IT infrastructure creation company in Russia, and one of Russia’s top 200 private companies. CROC has become the first public cloud service provider in Russia to adopt InfiniBand—a standard for high-speed data transfer between servers and storage. Migration to a new network infrastructure took approximately one month and resulted in up to a ten-fold increase in cloud service performance.

After the overwhelming success of Hackathon 2014 this past January, Mellanox Israel now presents 3D Hackathon: Develop, Debug, Deploy. This contest is designed to encourage innovation and teamwork, while introducing new 3D software technologies and features in a very quick turnaround time.
Mellanox Israel employees were invited to submit proposals for new software projects related to existing Mellanox technologies and to form a team of up to 3 people to develop a proposal. More than 20 unique software proposals were submitted. The steering committee evaluated and selected 16 proposals for consideration into the final competition. The top 3 teams were awarded prizes. All teams were asked to present working demos.
Mellanox congratulates Yarden Gerbi as she won the Silver medal in the recent World Judo Championship competition. The competition was held August 23-30, 2014 in Chelyabinsk, Russia. Gerbi competes in the under 63 kg (139 lbs.) division.
It was a busy time last week in San Francisco! During VMworld 2014, we announced a collaboration with VMware and Micron to enable highly efficient deployments of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure. The VDI deployment will be a combination of Mellanox’s 10GbE interconnect, VMware’s Virtual SAN (VSAN) and Micron’s SSDs. The joint solution creates a scalable infrastructure while minimizing the cost per virtual desktop user. The new solution will consist of three servers running VMware vSphere and Virtual SAN each with one Mellanox ConnectX-3 10GbE NIC, two Micron 1.4TB P420m PCIe SSDs and six HDDs.
We have submitted several speaking sessions for the upcoming OpenStack Summit in Paris, France. Please review the descriptions for each session below, click to vote and share these presentations with your colleagues. Remember: Voting closes on Wednesday, August 6, 2014 at 11:59 pm CDT.
