Highly Scalable, Providing Leading Management, Automation and Network
Visibility for Cloud, Hyperscale, Enterprise and Storage Infrastructures
SUNNYVALE, Calif. & YOKNEAM, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX), a leading supplier of
high-performance, end-to-end smart interconnect solutions for data
center servers and storage systems, today announced the release
of Mellanox Onyx - the industry-leading open and flexible Ethernet
Network Operating System for Mellanox Spectrum Open Ethernet switches.
Mellanox Onyx succeeds MLNX-OS as a next-generation Ethernet network
operating system and is a natural choice for Cloud, Hyperscale,
Enterprise, Media & Entertainment, Storage, and high-performance
Ethernet-based interconnect applications.
"Mellanox Onyx brings leading management, provisioning, automation and
network visibility to data centers and cloud infrastructures, to deliver
the best scalability, performance and overall return on investment,"
said Yael Shenhav, vice president of products at Mellanox Technologies.
"Mellanox Onyx also offers a mature Layer-3 feature-set, with integrated
support for standard Devops tools, allowing customers to run third party
containerized applications with complete SDK access. By utilizing
Mellanox Onyx's leading capabilities, our customers can enjoy the
benefits of an industry-standard Layer-2 and Layer3 feature-set along
with the ability to customize and optimize the network to their specific
Key Elements of Mellanox Onyx
Rich Layer-3 Feature Set
Mellanox Onyx derives its rich Layer-3 feature set, a foundational part
of any modern scale-out Ethernet Datacenter Fabrics, from an
industry-proven software stack. The base operating system comes with
built-in dynamic routing protocols such as BGP/OSFP without the need to
purchase additional licenses. With a robust control plane and 64-way
ECMP support, Mellanox Onyx-based platforms can be used to construct
large, scale-out L3 fabrics for datacenters.
In addition to supporting standard DevOps tools like Ansible and Puppet,
Mellanox Onyx has smart hooks to automate network provisioning for high
performance workloads such as storage and artificial intelligence. For
example, RoCE is the preferred transport for artificial intelligence and
NVMe-over-Fabrics storage workloads and Mellanox Onyx automates the
end-to-end QoS configuration and buffer tuning for RoCE.
With Mellanox Onyx, customers can run containerized applications on the
switch system itself, while having complete access to the silicon SDK
and the operating system's APIs. The container infrastructure allows
customer communities and partner ecosystems to innovate and extend the
functionality of Mellanox Spectrum Ethernet Switches to Ethernet Storage
Fabric, Media and Entertainment and other such solutions.
Enhanced Network Visibility
Mellanox Onyx enables buffer and link monitoring that leverage Mellanox
Spectrum's unique silicon level capabilities. The additional telemetry
and visibility features can be used to debug congestion and micro-burst
issues in large networks. This is especially useful when debugging large
networks that support high performance storage and artificial
intelligence workloads. Mellanox Onyx is fully integrated with Mellanox
NEO network orchestration, visibility, and management platform. Mellanox
NEO provides a single pane of glass control and orchestration mechanism
for the entire network.
Mellanox Onyx is generally available now, and is a complete super-set of
MLNX-OS in terms of functionality. Mellanox Onyx is also backward
compatible with MLNX-OS.
