16 Ways LinkX DAC Cables are “Breaking Out” All Over Servers and Storage

Part I of Three Part Blog Series on Cables & Transceivers CAT-5e cabling and 1GBASE-T have dominated the data center interconnect scene for 15 plus years. However, the transition to 10G Ethernet proved to be a significant hindrance in both power consumption and cost. That’s when Direct Attach Copper (DAC) cabling, aka Twinax, snuck in […]

Networking Matters for Your Enterprise Cloud

Five Reasons Why the Mellanox Ethernet Solution is a Perfect Fit When you build your enterprise cloud, do you simply connect the hyperconverged platform to the existing core switch and hope for the best? What happens if the main network gets congested as often happens? When you consolidate all your datacenters to the hyperconverged infrastructure, […]

Co-Design Architecture to Deliver Next Generation of Performance Boost

The latest revolution in HPC is the move to Co-Design architecture, a collaborative effort to reach Exascale performance by taking a holistic system-level approach to fundamental performance improvements. This collaboration enables all active system devices to become accelerators by orchestrating a more effective mapping of communication between devices and software in the system to produce […]

The Drive for 25: HPE Introduces New 25GbE NICs

At the Discover Conference earlier this month, HPE introduced exciting new 25G networking technology in their “Drive for 25” including dual-port 25GbE adapters, in both mezzanine and stand-up PCIe card form factors. These new adapters — based on the Mellanox ConnectX-4 Lx silicon — enable cloud and enterprise customers to improve network performance and efficiency […]

After many years of extensive development of data center visualization technologies, which started with server virtualization and continued with networking virtualization and storage virtualization, the time has arrived to work on maximizing the efficiency of the data centers that have been deployed over those advanced solutions. The rationale for doing this is pretty clear. New […]

Why We Decided To Partner with Cumulus Networks

It is no secret that cloud computing has changed the IT infrastructure model forever. It has transformed the landscape of the data center including the way data centers are used, how they are designed, and how they are managed. The cloud has altered the buying behavior of the Enterprise, with every new project now going […]

10/40GbE Architecture Efficiency Maxed-Out? It’s Time to Deploy 25/50/100GbE

In 2014, after the IEEE rejected the idea of standardizing 25GbE and 50GbE over one lane and two lanes respectively. It was then that a group of technology leaders (including Mellanox, Google, Microsoft, Broadcom, and Arista) formed the 25Gb Ethernet consortium in order to create an industry standard for defining interoperable solutions. The Consortium has […]
