Accelerating Applications Across Different Networks with Mellanox Gateway Systems

Remove complexity, improve performance, enable flexibility and save energy and cooling costs.

With its high bandwidth, low-latency and reduced overhead, InfiniBand is the ideal choice for speeding application performance while simultaneously consolidating network and I/O infrastructure. Combining InfiniBand and Ethernet into a single solution provides the ideal rack backbone for next generation data centers.

Mellanox's InfiniBand to Ethernet gateway functionality built-in within Mellanox switches provides the most cost-effective, high-performance solution for data center unified connectivity solutions. Mellanox's gateways enable data centers to operate at up to 56Gb/s network speeds while seamlessly connecting to 1, 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet networks. Existing LAN infrastructures and management practices can be preserved, easing deployment and providing significant return-on-investment.
