Mellanox Announces Virtual Modular Switch, The Most Efficient Ethernet Aggregation Switch Network Solution
Virtual Modular Switch delivers performance and data center savings
advantages over traditional chassis switch products
SUNNYVALE, Calif. & YOKNEAM, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX) (TASE: MLNX), a leading
supplier of high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data
center servers and storage systems, today announced the availability of
Virtual Modular Switch™ (VMS) solution, a world leading Ethernet
data center aggregation switch infrastructure. Mellanox VMS is a
high-port density, flexible and scalable data center aggregation
switching solution. Mellanox VMS provides up to 720 ports of 40 gigabits
per second with latency lower than 2 microseconds while reducing capital
expenses by up to 85 percent and power consumption by up to 90 percent.
Moreover, Mellanox VMS offers the best-in-class resiliency, maintaining
up to over 90 percent of the aggregation bandwidth at the time of a
switch failure, compared to traditional chassis-based switches.
According to Crehan
Research's Data Center Ethernet Switch reports, there has been a
significant mix shift away from modular or chassis-based switches toward
fixed switches, with fixed switches gaining over twenty points of share
"Over the past four years we have seen a strong shift toward
fixed/top-of-rack data center switches, which has been even more
pronounced in the higher-speed, 10GbE and 40GbE, segments," said Seamus
Crehan, president of Crehan Research. "Mellanox's Virtual Modular Switch
is primed to address these Data Center Ethernet switch trends."
"Cloud, Web 2.0, and enterprise data centers which require large
aggregation Ethernet switch networks are moving away from legacy modular
switches, due to high expenses and rapid obsolescence, to fixed switches
that bring scalability and efficiency," said Gilad Shainer, vice
president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies. "The Mellanox Virtual
Modular Switch solution, comprised of Mellanox's 10, 40 and 56GbE
switches, enables our customers to achieve a new level of scalability,
while future-proofing their investment and reducing expenses."
The Mellanox VMS solution is constructed by connecting Mellanox's
SwitchX-2 based 40 and 56 Gigabit Ethernet systems connected in a
non-blocking topology and managed with the widely-used Puppet and Chef
The Mellanox Virtual Modular Switch is generally available now.
