    Benchmark tests performed by The Tolly Group demonstrate Mellanox’s Ethernet switch leadership with record performance and energy efficiency

    Interop, Las Vegas, NV. May 9, 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 results of benchmarking tests and measurements performed by The Tolly Group on Mellanox’s SwitchX® based Ethernet solutions. The benchmarking, utilizing industry-standard Ixia testing and validation solutions, demonstrated the industry-record performance and energy efficiency – over 2X better than the closest competitor – of Mellanox’s SwitchX Ethernet solutions.

    Mellanox SwitchX 10/40GbE switch IC and systems achieved:

    • 36-ports of 40GbE and/or 64-ports of 10GbE at full wire speed on a single chip
    • “Zero Jitter” lowest L2/L3 latency
    • 40GbE L2 latency between 206-223ns for any packet size
    • 40GbE L3 latency between 321-337ns for any packet size
    • 10GbE L2 latency between 258-269ns for any packet size
    • 10GbE L3 latency between 420-426ns for any packet size
    • 40GE L2 multicast latency between 198 and 214ns for any packet size
    • Industry record  < 0.6Watt per 10GbE throughput at 100 percent load and full wire speed

    “We are pleased to work with Mellanox to conduct these benchmark testing reports,” said Kevin Tolly, founder, The Tolly Group. “Using Ixia testing solutions, Tolly was able to measure record-breaking performance and nanosecond latency detail at the finest level of jitter over Mellanox SwitchX 10/40GbE technology.”

    Mellanox’s SwitchX 10/40GbE switch silicon and systems, combined with the company’s ConnectX®-3 EN 10/40GbE NICs and QSFP copper and fiber cables, and Unified Fabric Manager™ (UFM™), provide a complete end-to-end 10/40GbE interconnect solution that delivers superior application performance and system efficiency.  The combination of application performance and infrastructure optimization maximizes return-on-investment in multiple markets including Web 2.0, financial services, database, virtualized data centers, Internet and hosting, cloud and high-performance computing.

    “These benchmark results are a testament to Mellanox’s 10/40GbE performance and the energy savings they deliver to data centers across all industries and markets,” said David Barzilai, vice president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies. “With Mellanox 10/40GbE switch solutions, data center managers can deliver industry-best application performance to their users while reducing capital and operating expenses.”
