Mellanox Announces Creation of Federal Government Subsidiary to Expand Mellanox's Engagements with U.S. Government

Dale D’Alessio named CEO of Mellanox Federal Systems

SUNNYVALE, CA. and YOKNEAM, ISRAEL – October 22, 2012 – 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 the creation of Mellanox Federal Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of Mellanox Technologies. Mellanox Federal Systems will be responsible for driving business development for all federal government agencies and the federal integrator market.

Dale D’Alessio has been named CEO of Mellanox Federal Systems, which will be based in Vienna, Virginia. Mr. D’Alessio was previously co-founder and managing member of YottaStor, a professional service and product company specializing in big data storage solutions  for the Intelligence and U.S. Department of Defense markets.

“Many federal agencies require high-performance interconnect solutions that can process large amounts of data over distributed systems,” said Dale D’Alessio, CEO of Mellanox Federal Systems. “Mellanox’s high bandwidth, low latency interconnect solutions are designed to optimize the performance of defense and intelligence applications.”

Mellanox is currently working with many government agencies and organizations: the Department of Energy, NASA (Ames, Goddard, Johnson), US Army, US Navy, US Air Force, US Postal Service, FBI, DHS, NIH, the EPA and various intelligence agencies. Mellanox also works with the leading systems integrators that serve the federal government, including Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics, Boeing, CSC and Raytheon.

Mellanox Federal Systems will operate as a separate entity to address demand from the U.S. federal government for high performance connectivity solutions and to drive the development of new applications.

“Mellanox has supported the government's IT server and storage interconnect needs for more than 10 years and has established itself as a trusted leader in delivering high-performance interconnect solutions,” said Eyal Waldman, chairman, president and CEO of Mellanox Technologies. “The formation of Mellanox Federal Systems is a natural evolution for us in expanding and enhancing our relationship with the U.S. government.”

Mellanox solutions are used for a variety of applications and are used by federal agencies in the areas of cloud computing, defense/intelligence, big-data analytics and High Performance Computing (HPC).
