Mellanox Demonstrates Low-Latency Ethernet at Interop

Efficient RDMA Solution Delivers Lowest Latency, I/O Consolidation, Lower Power and Higher Performance for Server and Storage Applications

INTEROP, LAS VEGAS, NV – May 19, 2009 – Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX; TASE: MLNX), a leading supplier of end-to-end connectivity solutions for data center servers and storage, today announced that it is demonstrating Low-Latency Ethernet (LLE) at Interop in booth #2307. The demonstration showcases LLE running over Mellanox’s ConnectX® EN 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapters at line rate with industry-leading latency of 3 micro seconds.

“Enterprise data centers are adopting converged I/O solutions to help reduce costs for power, cooling, IT management and server consolidation,” said Michael Kagan, CTO of Mellanox Technologies. “Low latency Ethernet with RDMA capability enables end-users to derive tangible performance benefits from their mission-critical, transaction intensive applications while reducing power and consolidating their SAN (FCoE) and LAN (10GbE) traffic on lossless 10 Gigabit Ethernet.”

Low Latency Ethernet is enabled through an efficient RDMA transport over Layer2 10GbE networks for performance-critical and low-latency applications. It extends I/O consolidation over Ethernet with an efficient RDMA solution in conjunction to TCP and FCoE. Mellanox’s unified I/O products provide one-wire solutions for any networking, clustering, storage, and management application with an enhanced quality of service to guarantee high productivity for enterprise applications.
