Mellanox Announces New Software Defined FCoE Switch Solution

Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX), a leading supplier of high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for servers and storage systems, and Jeda Networks, the leader in software-defined storage networking (SDSN™), today announced the world’s fastest and most efficient Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) switching solution. Mellanox Ethernet switches integrated with Jeda Networks’ Fabric Network Controller™ (FNC™) software deliver a solution that is easier to manage and less costly than existing FCoE switch offerings.

The software defined storage solution separates the Fibre Channel Fabric (FCF) control plane from the data plane, supporting high-speed FCoE data flows over lossless Ethernet switches while centralizing the FCF management through a highly-available FNC server. Storage traffic flows over 10/40Gb/s links with the lowest latency in the industry, and management is simplified and centralized.

“The ability to make reliable Fibre Channel storage networking faster and more affordable is a huge benefit of this new breed of FCoE solution,” said Paul Evans, principal architect at system integrator Daystrom Technologies. “Many of our customers have been interested in FCoE, but didn’t see enough benefits to make them switch from their existing FC platforms. The Mellanox SDSN solution with Jeda Networks changes that: lower-latency, faster connections, simple management and lower cost. It’s a compelling solution that appeals to all parts of a business.”

The solution is designed to work with industry-standard converged network adapters and storage arrays that support FCoE. Setup and management is up to four times faster and easier than with competing switches.

“We have been impressed with the performance and capabilities of the Mellanox Ethernet switches,” said Stuart Berman, CEO and founder of Jeda Networks. “Together with Mellanox, we can deliver a robust, high-performance FCoE fabric to customers that can support both 10GbE and 40GbE with 2.5X higher performance than 16Gb Fibre Channel.”

“The promise of FCoE is delivering superb performance for business applications on converged Ethernet networks while reducing total cost of ownership,” said John Kim, director of storage marketing at Mellanox Technologies. “Mellanox continues to lead in high-bandwidth and low-latency networking solutions for storage, and we’re proud to add FCoE to our portfolio. Now our switches can support InfiniBand, RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE), and FCoE, giving customers more flexibility and performance to connect their enterprise storage.”
