Mellanox unveils special offer for 10/40GbE end-to-end solutions bundles


Mellanox, a provider of end-to-end connectivity solutions
for data center servers and storage systems, announced a beta lab bundle
promotion for its 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet end-to-end connectivity solutions.


The bundles, available through September 30, 2011,
feature one SX1035 10/40GbE Ethernet Lite L2″ switch, four ConnectX-3 EN 10 or
40GbE PCIe 3.0 x8 adapter cards, four 3 meter passive copper cables, a one year
manufacturer’s warranty and Mellanox hardware and software bring-up assistance
support for a period of three months.


The bundles enable customers to economically evaluate
high bandwidth, low-latency end-to-end Mellanox Ethernet solutions.


Mellanox’s SwitchX and ConnectX solutions give IT
managers flexibility in how they deploy higher bandwidth to servers, providing
simple upgrade paths from gigabit Ethernet to 40 Gigabit Ethernet,” said Marc
Sultzbaugh, vice president, worldwide sales, Mellanox Technologies.


Mellanox to offer this limited time bundle to their
customers so that they may quickly gain hands-on experience and see the many
benefits Mellanox’s end-to-end 40 Gigabit Ethernet solutions deliver to their


The 36-port 10/40GbE SX1035 high density switch with QSFP
connectors is designed with Mellanox’s SwitchX architecture to deliver up to
2.88TB/s of non-blocking throughput in a single 1U enclosure.


The SX1035 switch delivers latency performance as low as
230ns at 40GbE and 250ns at 10GbE for faster application response time.


To meet the diverse needs of data centers of all sizes,
the SX1035 offers flexible configurations supporting up to 36 40GbE connections
or 64 10GbE connections. The typical power consumption for these flexible
network installations is an industry-low 2.8 Watts per 40GbE port and 1.3 Watts
per 10GbE port.


The ConnectX-3 10 and 40GbE adapter cards boost
application efficiency and scalability while maintaining extremely low system
power consumption to offer optimized latency and performance for converged I/O


ConnectX-3 accelerates RDMA applications with
hardware-based RoCE (RDMA over Converged Ethernet), delivering efficient RDMA
transport over Layer 2 Ethernet with latencies less than 1.3us. For enhanced
agility, customers can combine ConnectX-3 with Mellanox VMA software to
accelerate socket-based applications with latencies as low as 4us.


Mellanox offers robust 40GbE QSFP passive copper cables
and 10GbE QSFP-SFP+ hybrid copper cables to complement the SX1035 switch and
ConnectX-3 adapter cards. The cables offer unparalleled performance and link
reliability for 10 and 40GbE networking connectivity in the rack.


Mellanox’s next generation 10 and 40GbE bundle promotion
unleashes superior performance with unprecedented scalability and fabric
flexibility for efficient data center operation at an economical value.
