Mellanox’s Hardware-Based I/O Virtualization Solution Over VMware ESXi 5.1 Enables Industry’s Highest Performance In Virtualized Data Centers

VMworld 2012 – Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX) (TASE: MLNX), a leading supplier of high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data center servers and storage systems, today announced the availability of Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) drivers for its end-to-end FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand and 10/40GbE solutions over VMware ESXi 5.1. The new drivers, available through Mellanox, enable direct performance for virtual machines (VMs), delivering a sustainable bandwidth rate of up to 48Gb/s of bandwidth to storage per VM and less than 2us for VM-to-VM interconnect latency. The new drivers, combined with Mellanox ConnectX®-3 56Gb/s host adapters and SwitchX® 56Gb/s switch systems, provide the highest performance and VM density for virtualized and cloud data centers while increasing data center return-on-investment.

Taking advantage of Mellanox’s high-performance interconnect solutions, end-users can operate enterprise applications in virtualized data centers over VMware ESXi 5.1 and achieve similar performance to operating over a native operating systems environment. This enables IT and application managers to accelerate their business performance over a more cost-effective and highly efficient infrastructure.

“Through our continued innovation, Mellanox has become the first company to provide a high-bandwidth, low-latency, end-to-end interconnect solution with SR-IOV over VMware ESXi 5.1,” said Yaron Haviv, vice president of data center solutions at Mellanox Technologies. “IT managers can now deliver uncompromised application performance over a virtualized environment to their users while reducing overhead, simplifying management and maximizing their data center infrastructure return-on-investment.”

Mellanox’s hardware-based I/O virtualization solution over VMware ESXi 5.1 leverages advanced hardware offloads to perform I/O virtualization functions and minimize overhead, allowing more CPU cycles for applications. In addition, hardware-based isolation of VM I/O in a multitenant environment will result in better QoS and enhanced security – all controlled by vCenter through a plug-in module.
