SUNNYVALE, Calif. & YOKNEAM, Israel, April 30 — Mellanox Technologies, Ltd., a leading supplier of high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data center servers and storage systems, today announced it will showcase the world’s first demonstration of Open Ethernet platforms during Interop in Las Vegas from May 7-9, 2013. The Open Ethernet demonstration will include Quagga L3 open source stack running on top of Mellanox’s SwitchX based 10/40/56GbE switch systems. Mellanox’s Open Ethernet initiative is an alternative approach to traditional closed-code Ethernet switches, providing customers with full flexibility and freedom to custom-design their data center in order to optimize utilization, efficiency and overall return-on-investment. The demonstration showcases how customers can run Quagga or their customized version of Quagga on top of Mellanox open platform Ethernet switches and benefit from increased flexibility and performance.
“The market’s move toward SDN and open source networking offers a variety of advantages that help drive data center productivity and currently is not available with traditional proprietary software,” said Gilad Shainer, vice president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies. “Our demonstration with Quagga highlights the power of Open Ethernet to provide the capability to fully customize open source software packages on top of Mellanox 40 and 56GbE switches, enabling our customers to add differentiation and competitive advantages in their networking infrastructure while reducing cost.”
