Mellanox 10/25/40/50/56/100 Gigabit Ethernet converged network adapters: flexible I/O for the dynamic data centre


JOHANNESBURG – June 09, 2017 – Mellanox continues its leadership in providing high-performance networking technologies by delivering superior productivity and scaling in 10/25/40/50/56/100 Gigabit Ethernet Adapters, enabling data centres to do more with less.

These adaptors are now available from Networks Unlimited, an African value-added distributor of converged technology, data centre, networking, and security technology solutions.

“As data centres across the continent deploy virtualised servers, they are recognising the higher demands on their I/O infrasrtructure,” says Anton Jacobsz, managing director at Networks Unlimited.

Mellanox 10/25/40/50/56/100 Gigabit Ethernet Network Interface Cards (NIC) deliver high bandwidth and industry-leading connectivity for performance-driven server and storage applications in the most demanding data centres, public and private clouds, Web2.0 and Big Data applications, as well as High-Performance Computing (HPC) and Storage systems.

With support for 10/25/40/50/56/100 Gb/s transfer rates, 64 physical functions and up to 512 virtual functions, Mellanox adapters can satisfy the bandwidth demands of these virtualised environments. And with backwards compatibility, the Ethernet cards can be deployed in early generation fabrics giving IT managers an upgrade migration path to 25, 40, 50 and 100 GbE.

In addition, Web 2.0 and cloud service providers need high bandwidth virtualisation support and CPU offloads to achieve the highest productivity from their data centres. Mellanox Ethernet adapters support virtualisation, Overlay Networks, CPU offloads and RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE), enabling data centre efficiency and scalability.

Clustered data bases, web infrastructure, and high frequency trading are just a few example of applications that will achieve significant throughput and latency improvements resulting in faster access, real-time response and increased number of virtual machines per server.

Financial institutions, in particular, utilising high frequency trading or data exchange applications require low latency fabrics, and Mellanox Ethernet adapters deliver low latency Sockets and RDMA solutions for the ultimate performance optimisation.
