What is CloudX™?

Mellanox CloudX™ is a group of reference architectures which allow building the most efficient, high performance and scalable clouds based on Mellanox superior interconnect and off the shelf building blocks (servers, storage, interconnect and software).

It incorporates virtualization with high-bandwidth and low-latency interconnect solutions while significantly reducing data center costs, providing the fastest data transfer and most effective HW utilization.

The Mellanox Solution

CloudX addresses the need for fast data analysis/fast data storage access. The solution is composed of a variety of 10Gb-100Gb products, allowing the use of fewer network elements, higher capacity, simpler networks, and reduced IT overhead costs.

  • Acceleration: < 1 microsecond application latency, remote direct memory access (RDMA) between servers and storage, allowing bare metal performance.
  • Virtualization: Supports virtualized overlay networks without compromising high performance, using integrated reduction technology (SR-IOV).
  • Convergence: One interconnect for compute, storage, and networking.
