The Mellanox SX1024, based on Mellanoxs SwitchX-2 switch silicon, is the world's first non-blocking ToR switch with 48 10GbE ports and 12 40GbE ports in a 1U solution. The SX1024 enables data centre IT managers to increase their application performance and eliminate the forced congestion imposed by other Ethernet switch solutions. As a result, the SX1024 was recognized by ZDNet China as the most efficient 10/40GbE ToR switch.
China Network World awarded the Mellanox VPI solution, including ConnectX interconnect adapters and SwitchX interconnect switch products, with its 'Innovative Converged Network Award' for Cloud computing. The award was based on the flexibility of supporting both FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand and 10/40Gb/s Ethernet in a single interconnect solution, as well as Mellanox's VPI solution's advanced application offloading and comprehensive management.
"It is an honour to be recognized by ZDNet China and China Network World for our product excellence in the Cloud and enterprise data centre environments", stated Gilad Shainer, vice president of market development at Mellanox Technologies. "It's a testament to the hard working teams at Mellanox who continue to deliver leading server and storage interconnect technologies to our customers."
The annual ZDNet China and China Network World awards recognize vendors and products that facilitate low latency and high efficiency across small businesses and enterprise data centres in Asia.
