Mellanox Announces SX1012 12-Port 40Gb/s Ethernet Switch Solution

SX1012 enables storage and database appliances to leverage higher throughput for increased productivity

SUNNYVALE, Calif. and YOKNEAM, ISRAEL – May 29, 2013 – Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX; TASE: MLNX), a leading supplier of high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data center servers and storage systems, today announced its SwitchX®-2 based SX1012 Ethernet switch, a cost-effective solution for small-scale high-performance computing, storage and database deployments. The SX1012 system provides 12 ports of 40GbE at the smallest footprint in the industry with two systems fitting into a single 1U height, in a standard 19 inch rack. Each port can be configured to provide up to 56GbE line rate to further enhance the performance capabilities of the switch and can also be split into four standalone 10GbE interfaces. This allows the SX1012 to be used in migration scenarios from 10GbE to 40/56GbE server and storage connectivity.

The Mellanox SX1012 switch solution is based on Mellanox’s Virtual Protocol Interconnect® (VPI) technology and can run the full capabilities of MLNX-OS® to enable the switch to work in mutual Ethernet and InfiniBand environments for maximum usability in various scenarios.

“The Mellanox SX1012 Ethernet switch is a great fit into small-scale storage and database applications, providing very high-throughput capacity in a compact enclosure,” said Gilad Shainer, vice president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies. “We are seeing increased market demand for small-scale 40GbE switches that can enable the creation of small high-performance clusters, storage solutions and database appliances. The new SX1012 switch delivers the right solution for these environments, removing the need for larger, more expensive switch platforms.”

SX1012 Availability
The SX1012 will be generally available in August 2013. For more information, please visit www.mellanox.com.
