ISRAEL,UNITED STATES : Mellanox Announces New Pricing Structure, Enabling 10 Gigabit Ethernet for Worldwide Data Center Adoption Today.

MellanoxA Technologies, Ltd., a leading supplier of high-performance, end-to-end connectivity solutions for data center servers and storage systems, today announced a new pricing structure and expanded channel for its high-performance line of end-to-end 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) solutions. Analysts are predicting significant movement towards 10GbE in 2012, particularly with the upcoming launch of the Intel Romley and Sandy Bridge with PCI Express 3.0 platform. Mellanox s solutions provide end users with better application performance, lower power consumption and lower cost vs. offerings currently available from other Ethernet vendors.

According to Crehan Research, currently there are almost 170 million data center and server-class ports installed for 1GbE worldwide and about 25 million ports for 10GbE; 10GbE currently accounts for just 13 percent of all those installed Ethernet ports. In 2012, Crehan Research expects 10GbE to increase to 37 percent of the total annual market shipments.

In 2012, we expect to see a significant increase in the number of 10GbE deployments, with it becoming the dominant and de facto data center network connection by 2014, said Seamus Crehan, president, Crehan Research. Price declines, such as the ones announced today from Mellanox, will help drive volume adoption.

Mellanox has also expanded its Ethernet offering via its worldwide network of channel and distribution partners including Altima, Avnet, Colfax Direct, DScon, Hammer PLC, SAMboo Systems, Servants, SysOne, Tech Data, and others. A complete listing of Mellanox Authorized Distributors is available at

The launch of the Intel Romley and Sandy Bridge platform in the coming months is going to give the industry a strong push towards faster interconnect speeds, said Eyal Waldman, chairman, president and CEO of Mellanox Technologies. For data center managers, 10GbE is the minimum data rate they should be considering for all deployments this year. Mellanox products and solutions are delivering 10GbE and higher data rates today providing better application performance, lower power consumption and improved ROI.

Mellanox also today announced a new educational webinar taking place January 30 from 8:00am-9:00am PST. The webinar will include detailed 10GbE market data presented by Crehan Research, including adoption trends, forecasted market growth and an overview of Mellanox end-to-end 10GbE solutions.
