Mellanox 40 Gigabit Ethernet Solutions Deliver Record Virtualization Performance Over VMware ESXi 5.1

Stocks in this article: MLNX

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 that its end-to-end 40GbE solution running over VMware ESXi 5.1 enables a new price/performance record for virtualized data centers. Benchmark results achieved a sustainable rate of more than 37Gb/s of throughput using servers equipped with Mellanox’s ConnectX®-3 40GbE NICs connected by SwitchX® 40GbE switches and the company’s high performance QSFP cables.

With record performance, Mellanox’s 40GbE solutions eliminate server-to-storage bottlenecks and enable virtualized data centers to increase their operational efficiency and maximize the return-on-investment. The solution maximizes the number of Virtual Machines (VMs) running on each server and reduces data center capital and operation expenses. It also simplifies the deployment and helps IT managers to meet their performance goals at a much lower total cost of ownership. These performance results were achieved using the new VMware’s ESXi 5.1.

“IT managers in virtualized environments and cloud computing are seeking ways to increase their data center efficiency and maximize their return-on-investment,” said Yaron Haviv, vice president of data center solutions at Mellanox Technologies. “With a high-performance end-to-end 40GbE interconnect solution, data center managers meet stringent Service Level Agreements by accelerating business applications over reduced infrastructure costs and power.”

Mellanox’s industry-leading end-to-end 40GbE interconnect solution for virtualized data centers includes the SwitchX®-based SX1036 36-port 40GbE switch, with record breaking performance of 220ns latency and 2.88Tb/s of non-blocking throughput, and ConnectX®-3 40GbE NICs that include NIC virtualization to provide greater performance and reduced CPU overhead in enterprise data center applications.

Live Demonstration and presentations at VMworld 2012 (August 26 th - 29 th )

The benefits of running VMware ESXi over 40GbE will be presented by VMware’s team at the VMworld 2012 conference (session: TEX2979) on Wednesday, August 29 at 12:30PM.
