SX1012 enables storage and database appliances to leverage higher
throughput for increased productivity
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 its SwitchX®-2 based SX1012
Ethernet switch, a cost-effective solution for small-scale
high-performance computing, storage and database deployments. The SX1012
system provides 12 ports of 40GbE at the smallest footprint in the
industry with two systems fitting into a single 1U height, in a standard
19 inch rack. Each port can be configured to provide up to 56GbE line
rate to further enhance the performance capabilities of the switch and
can also be split into four standalone 10GbE interfaces. This allows the
SX1012 to be used in migration scenarios from 10GbE to 40/56GbE server
and storage connectivity.

The Mellanox SX1012 switch solution is based on Mellanox's Virtual
Protocol Interconnect® (VPI) technology and can run the full
capabilities of MLNX-OS® to enable the switch to work in mutual Ethernet
and InfiniBand environments for maximum usability in various scenarios.
"The Mellanox SX1012 Ethernet switch is a great fit into small-scale
storage and database applications, providing very high-throughput
capacity in a compact enclosure," said Gilad Shainer, vice president of
marketing at Mellanox Technologies. "We are seeing increased market
demand for small-scale 40GbE switches that can enable the creation of
small high-performance clusters, storage solutions and database
appliances. The new SX1012 switch delivers the right solution for these
environments, removing the need for larger, more expensive switch
The SX1012 will be generally available in August 2013. For more
