100GbE Switches – Have You Done The Math?

100GbE switches – sounds futuristic? Not really, 100GbE is here and being deployed by those who do the math… 100GbE is not just about performance, it is about saving money. For many years, the storage market has been “doing the math”, $/IOPs is a very common metric to measure storage efficiency and make buying decisions. […]

Ethernet Performance – Can you Afford an Unpredictable Network?

Overlay networks (such as VXLAN) are the most widely deployed implementation of Software Defined Networks (SDN). But when deploying an overlay SDN network, a bullet proof underlay networks is required. Many simply assume that the underlay network will perform reliably and predictably. But it turns out that at the highest network speeds, predictable performance is […]

The Video Studio of the Future has Just Arrived

Mellanox has a long heritage in high bandwidth use-cases for high performance computing and enterprise applications, but one little-known development is with real-time video transports. Traditionally within the broadcast industry, they’ve used a proprietary interface called SDI (Serial Digital Interface) to move uncompressed video signals around a broadcast plant. SDI is a family of digital […]

Mellanox InfiniBand and Ethernet Switches Receive IPv6 Certification

I am proud to announce that Mellanox’s SwitchX® line of InfiniBand and Ethernet switches have received a gold certification for Internet Protocol v6 (IPv6) by the Internet Protocol Forum.  Adding IPv6 support to our SwitchX series is another milestone for Mellanox’s InfiniBand and Ethernet interconnect solutions, and demonstrates our commitment to producing quality, interoperable InfiniBand […]

Interconnect analysis: InfiniBand and 10GigE in High-Performance Computing

InfiniBand and Ethernet are the leading interconnect solutions for connecting servers and storage systems in high-performance computing and in enterprise (virtualized or not) data centers. Recently, the HPC Advisory Council has put together the most comprehensive database for high-performance computing applications to help users understand the performance, productivity, efficiency and scalability differences between InfiniBand and […]

40GigE is here!

Today we launched ConnectX®-2 EN 40G converged network adapter card, the world’s first 40 Gigabit Ethernet adapter solution. ConnectX-2 EN 40G enables data centers to maximize the utilization of the latest multi-core processors, achieve unprecedented Ethernet server and storage connectivity, and advance LAN and SAN unification efforts. Mellanox’s 40 Gigabit Ethernet converged network adapter sets […]

Thanks for coming to see us at VMworld

VMworld was everything we expected and more. The traffic was tremendous and we had a lot of excitement and buzz in our booth (especially after we won the Best of VMworld in the Cloud Computing category). Just in case you were unable to sit through one of Mellanox’s presentations, or from one of our partners […]

Launching IS5000 40Gb/s InfiniBand Switches at ISC’09

ISC’09 in Hamburg, Germany, went exceptionally well. Below is a quick video of us launching the new IS5000 family of 40Gb/s InfiniBand switches to the attending press and analysts. Afterwards, Gilad Shainer, director of HPC marketing, gives you a tour on the live booth demonstrations for both 40Gb/s IB and low-latency 10 Gigabit Ethernet.

Missed Mellanox at Interop?

Just in case you missed us at Interop 2009, below are just a few of the presentations that took place in our booth. Mellanox 10 Gigabit Ethernet and 40Gb/s InfiniBand adapters, switches and gateways are key to making your data center F.U.E.L. Efficient   Mellanox Product Manager, Satish Kikkeri, provides additional details on Low-Latency Ethernet […]

The Automotive Makers Require Better Compute Simulations Capabilities

This week I presented in the LS-DYNA user conference. LS-DYNA is one of the most used applications for automotive related computer simulations – simulations that are being used throughout the vehicle design process and decreases the need to build expensive physical prototypes. Computer simulation usage has decreased the vehicle design cycle from years to month, […]
