Mellanox Technologies Teams With Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory To Develop Advanced Technology Cluster Testbed

InfiniBand-Accelerated, 1152-node Testbed Provides Petaflop Computing and Storage Accessibility for Commerce, Industry, and Research and Development

SC08, AUSTIN, TX – November 18, 2008 – Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX; TASE: MLNX), a leading supplier of semiconductor-based server and storage interconnect products, today announced the company has teamed with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory to accelerate the development of powerful next-generation high-performance clusters in a project dubbed Hyperion.

Hyperion helps fulfill U.S. Department of Energy/National Nuclear Security Administration goals to: provide state-of-the-art computing capabilities for national security; advance high performance scientific computing for meeting energy, climate and other national challenges; enabling scientific discovery in basic science; and enhancing U.S. competitiveness in high performance computing.

“We are pleased to be at the forefront of the Hyperion Project to provide the InfiniBand-accelerated infrastructure critical to the mission requirements of NNSA’s Advanced Simulation and Computing program,” said Sash Sunkara, vice president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies. “Mellanox continues to lead in the high-performance computing and enterprise data center markets with the highest performing and scalable solutions that deliver unmatched performance for parallel compute clusters and storage.”

“Hyperion project collaborators, including Mellanox, will advance the state-of-the-art in a cost-effective manner, benefitting both end users, such as the national labs, and the computing industry, which can expand the market with proven, easy to deploy large and small-scale Linux clusters,” said Mark Seager, LLNL project leader. “Laying the foundation for the next generation high-end systems will require state-of-the-art interconnect performance capabilities.”
