Mellanox announces limited time offer for next generation 10/40GbE end-to-end solutions bundles

25 Jul 2011 Sunnyvale - Mellanox Technologies Ltd., a supplier of high-performance, end-to-end connectivity solutions for data centre servers and storage systems, has launched 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", stated Marc Sultzbaugh, vice president of worldwide sales at Mellanox Technologies. "We are pleased to offer this limited time bundle to our 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 business."

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 unrivaled 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 infrastructures. The high bandwidth eliminates the need for multiple Ethernet connections to the server and doubles the throughput of prior generations. 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. The 40GbE connectivity is backwards compatible to 10GbE, allowing data centers to utilize their existing infrastructure while planning for future expansion.

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. The beta lab bundles are complete end-to-end connectivity solutions that enable customers to quickly bring up a 4-node cluster and experience the leading-edge technology that Mellanox has to offer. The beta lab bundles are available for purchase now through September 30, 2011.
