The new systems are part of the MetroX long-haul interconnect solution family and include:
The two new systems are in addition to the recently announced MetroX TX6100 system, which supports 6 ports running 40Gb/s to a distance up to 10km.
"The need for long-haul InfiniBand and Ethernet with RDMA connectivity continues to grow", stated Gilad Shainer, vice president of market development at Mellanox Technologies. "The MetroX series extends InfiniBand and Ethernet lossless RDMA beyond a single data centre network location. Data centre expansion or Disaster Recovery (DR) sites can now benefit from Mellanox's fastest interconnect solutions with no performance degradation. Utilizing Mellanox high-throughput interconnect solutions, our customers are able to reduce their database recovery time from days to hours, and thus maintain their business continuity and gain a competitive edge."
MetroX joins Mellanox's Virtual Protocol Interconnect (VPI) end-to-end interconnect portfolio and will be available during the second quarter of 2013.
