Melanox Technologies : Enabling the Use of Data

 Melanox integrated circuit s
Melanox Technologies was founded in 1999 by Eyal Waldman in Yokneam, Israel as a manufacturer of integrated circuit semiconductors for Next Generation I/O (NGIO) data infrastructure centers. When NGIO combined with Future I/O bridge architecture, a new standard was formed known as InfiniBand. Currently headquartered in both Sunnyvale, California and Yokneam, Israel, Melanox now specializes in complete end-to-end interconnect solutions, particularly within the InfiniBand and Ethernet protocols. With approximately 1,428 employees and fiscal year 2013 revenue totaling $390.9 million, the company offers products within four primary categories: adapters, switches, interconnect, and software. Mellanox technologies enable data information to be analyzed and stored more quickly and efficiently. As information becomes more cloud-based, Mellanox has developed its CloudX platform. This EVN (Efficient Virtualized Network) interconnect provides acceleration (using RDMA (remote direct memory access) with Infiniband or RoCE (Ethernet)), virtualization (hardware-supported virtualized overlay networks), and convergence (computing, storage, and networking on a single network).

The company’s CloudX is capable of supporting up to 56GB/s, boasts the world’s lowest latency at 1 microsecond, ensures lossless packet transmission, and bridges multiple protocols (unifying InfiniBand, Fibre Channel, iSCSI, and Ethernet). InfiniBand is a network communications link that is used for applications requiring high-performance computing and very high throughput. Currently, the most commonly used interconnect in supercomputers, Melanox offers a variety of solutions for this protocol including InfiniBand cards, adapter ICs, switch systems, and switch silicon. Mellanox offers similar products which use the Ethernet protocol, as well as a variety of other products including long-haul systems, gateway silicon, SwitchX SDK, HPC-X, PHY silicon, heat sinks, and much more.
