Mellanox Powers the First 25, 50 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet Fabric for HPE Synergy Platform

SH2200 Ethernet Switch Module Powered by Mellanox Spectrum Delivers 6.4 Tbps Non-Blocking Throughput and Unmatched Latency

LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- HPE DISCOVER 2017 - 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 announce its Spectrum Ethernet switch ASIC will power the first Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) Synergy Switch Module supporting native 25, 50, and 100 Gb/s Ethernet connectivity. The Spectrum switch module connects HPE Synergy compute module with an Ethernet switch fabric of unmatched performance and latency, which is ideal for cloud, financial services, telco and HPC.

This new switch module helps HPE to maintain its leadership, by enabling the transition to the next generation of Ethernet performance, offering 25 Gb/s connectivity options for the Synergy platform. The Mellanox SH2200 Synergy Switch Module enables 25 and 50 Gb/s Ethernet compute and storage connectivity while benefiting from even higher speed 100 Gb/s uplinks. In addition to providing future proof connectivity, this is an important addition to the HPE Synergy fabric portfolio, bringing high performance Ethernet connectivity into applications previously unserved by this class of high-performance switches. Applications including financial trading and analytics, scientific computing, cloud, and NFV (Network Function Virtualization) greatly benefit from full line rate, zero packet loss, and ultra-low 300ns latency Ethernet switches.

"HPE Synergy is the first truly composable infrastructure, a new category of infrastructure designed to accelerate application and services delivery for both traditional and new cloud native and DevOps environments on the same infrastructure," said Paul Miller, vice president of marketing, HPE. "We are pleased to partner with Mellanox to now offer even higher performance networking as an integrated component of the HPE Synergy platform. The unmatched Ethernet switch fabric performance and latency will enable our financial, business analytics, telco, and scientific customers to improve efficiency and achieve business results faster than ever before."

"The complete integration of compute and storage with our Spectrum 25, 50, and 100 Gb/s Ethernet networking fabric makes Synergy an unmatched business, analytics, and telco platform," said Kevin Deierling, vice president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies. "Faster compute and storage needs faster networks to access and process data in real-time, and HPE Synergy delivers, enabling enterprises and service providers to achieve total infrastructure efficiency across a broad range of business-critical workloads."

HPE Synergy comes complete with compute, storage, and built-in management, and now offers the industry's most advanced Ethernet fabric option. The SH2200 HPE Synergy Fabric, powered by Mellanox's Spectrum Ethernet switch, is a critical building block in making enterprise applications more efficient and by enabling data center operators to analyze data in real-time and drive their business forward. Together, HPE and Mellanox have opened the door for businesses to reimagine what the data center is truly capable of delivering, much faster than ever before.

Availability of HPE Synergy compute modules with the Mellanox SH2200 Synergy Switch Module is targeted for the third quarter of calendar year, 2017.
