Mellanox introduces world's first 25/50 Gb/s OCP Ethernet adapters for single and multi-host technology

7 Mar 2016 Sunnyvale, Yokneam - Mellanox Technologies Ltd. has unveiled ConnectX-4 Lx adapters, the world's first 25 & 50Gb/s Ethernet single and multi-host adapters for Open Compute Project (OCP) at the OCP Summit. The ConnectX-4 Lx based adapters are the first dedicated single and multi-host solutions for OCP, enabling significant performance upgrades for 10/25 and 40/50 Gb/s Ethernet networks, without requiring overhauling existing data centre cabling infrastructure. The contributions includes single and multi-host versions of both the ConnectX-4 & ConnectX-4 Lx adapters with 25, 50 & 100 Gb/s Ethernet technology.

With ConnectX-4 and ConnectX-4 Lx adapters, Mellanox is the only company to provide network adapters for multiple OCP server and storage Platforms including Yosemite, Leopard, and Rackspace Barreleye, an Open-Power based platform. Powered by Mellanox Multi-Host technology, ConnectX-4 Lx provides an innovative solution delivering flexibility and major cost savings for next generation Cloud, Web2.0 and Telco data centres. Multi-host technology disaggregates the network and enables building new scale-out heterogeneous compute and storage racks with direct connectivity from multiple hosts to a single network controller. Multi-Host technology is available today in the company's line of ConnectX-4 and ConnectX-4 Lx adapters at speeds of 50 and 100 Gb/s.

"Mellanox has played an important role in a number of OCP projects and has contributed to the open hardware and software model", stated Omar Baldonado, co-chair OCP Open Compute Networking Project. "We are pleased to see continued collaboration and the Mellanox contributions of core network adapter and switching technology to the OCP."

"Mellanox has been committed to OCP's vision from its inception. The contribution of the ConnectX-4 Lx 25 and 50Gb/s Ethernet adapter, enables Cloud, Web 2.0 and Telcos to enable open platforms, unleash innovation, and unlock performance", stated Kevin Deierling, vice president marketing at Mellanox Technologies. "Offering backwards compatibility with existing fiber infrastructure, with these adapters there is simply no reason not to jump from 10 to 25 and 50 Gb/s open platforms to achieve the highest performance, flexibility and agility, while eliminating vendor lock-in."
