Mellanox Enables The New Storage Network

Data storage is undergoing multiple simultaneous revolutions. Faster storage media is overwhelming traditional 8, 16 Gb FC and 10GbE networks, while new cloud, mobile, social media, analytics, and high-performance computing (HPC) applications require new storage solutions. These solutions are increasingly adopting consolidated Ethernet and InfiniBand networks instead of Fibre Channel SANs. Mellanox offers the ideal storage interconnect portfolio at speeds of 10, 25, 40, 50, and 100Gb/s speeds, delivering the best efficiency, highest performance and lowest cost.

Faster Storage Requires Faster Networks

Flash storage has created a revolution in IT and is disrupting traditional designs and vendors. Local flash makes servers and distributed storage solutions faster, requiring high-speed connections between each server. All-flash arrays require fast front-end connections to the servers to enjoy the full performance of flash storage today, and many benefit from RDMA (Remote Direct Memory Access) to minimize latency.

The New Storage is Software-Defined and Scale-Out

Scale-out architectures—often software-defined—deliver more cost effective storage solutions and are displacing traditional Fibre Channel SANs. Scale-out storage leverages converged Ethernet or InfiniBand networks to deliver improved simplicity, cost, and efficiency; higher throughput; and lower latency. Mellanox networking provides the highest performance, efficiency, and value for these increasingly popular storage solutions.
