Mellanox 40 Gigabit Ethernet Solutions Deliver Record Virtualization Performance

By DE Editors

Mellanox Technologies announced that its end-to-end 40GbE solution running over VMware ESXi 5.1 enables a sustainable rate of more than 37Gb/s of throughput using servers equipped with Mellanox’s ConnectX-3 40GbE NICs connected by SwitchX 40GbE switches and the company’s high performance QSFP cables.

According to the company, the solution maximizes the number of Virtual Machines (VMs) running on each server and reduces data center capital and operation expenses. It also simplifies the deployment and helps IT managers to meet their performance goals at a lower total cost of ownership.

“IT managers in virtualized environments and cloud computing are seeking ways to increase their data center efficiency and maximize their return-on-investment,” said Yaron Haviv, vice president of data center solutions at Mellanox. “With a high-performance, end-to-end 40GbE interconnect solution, data center managers meet stringent service level agreements by accelerating business applications over reduced infrastructure costs and power.”
