SX1016 Delivers best-in-class 10GbE networking performance, efficiency and scalability for data centers, financial services, Web 2.0 and cloud infrastructures
VMworld 2011, LAS VEGAS, Nev., Aug. 29 -- Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX; TASE: MLNX), a leading supplier of high-performance, end-to-end connectivity solutions for data center servers and storage systems, today announced the SX1016, an ultra-dense, low-latency 64-port 10GbE switch delivered in a sleek, top-of-rack 1U form factor. Based on the company's performance-leading SwitchX switch silicon ICs, the SX1016 delivers up to 1.28Tb/s of switching bandwidth, extreme port density and remarkably low 1.8W per port power consumption, making it an ideal choice for customers who are aiming to reduce data center bandwidth bottlenecks, space and energy.
According to Crehan Research, the high-speed Data Center Ethernet Switch market will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 28 percent, from over $3 Billion in 2010 to more than $12 Billion in 2015.
"Today's data centers need a dense networking infrastructure that provides faster, more efficient connectivity of the server and storage infrastructure," said John Monson, vice president of product marketing at Mellanox Technologies. "Mellanox's SX1016 10GbE switch helps meet this demand with a combination of performance, infrastructure optimization and ease-of-use that maximizes the end-user's return-on-investment."
Designed with future expansions of data center infrastructures in mind, the SX1016 is data center future-proofed with features such as Data Center Bridging and management support of IPv6 today, with the ability to extend L2 and L3 features through future software upgrades.
The SX1016 supports reversed airflow adding flexibility for data centers with different thermal designs, and consists of redundant fans and PSUs for higher availability. The SX1016 is equipped with enhanced chassis management capabilities supporting Web UI, industry-standard CLI, and is supported by Mellanox Unified Fabric Manager (UFM), which provides extensive end-to-end fabric orchestration and monitoring capabilities for virtualizing and scaling out data centers.
Mellanox's family of 10 and 40GbE switches, combined with ConnectX-3 EN 10 and 40GbE NICs, management and acceleration software and cables, provides end-users with best-of-breed, end-to-end Ethernet performance, latency, efficiency, reliability and ease-of-use.
The SX1016 will begin shipping to customers in October. More information can be found at www.mellanox.com.
