Mellanox to Ship Record of More Than One Million ConnectX Adapters in Q3 2019

Mellanox (News - Alert) 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 it is on track to ship over one million ConnectX and BlueField Ethernet network adapters in Q3 2019, a new quarterly record.

This milestone reflects the growing need of public and private clouds, telco operators and enterprise data centers for faster compute and storage platforms, driving the adoption of faster, more advanced and more secured networking infrastructure. As a result, leading data centers worldwide select the award-winning ConnectX and BlueField SmartNICs, to leverage networking speeds of 25, 50, 100, and 200 Gb/s, and take advantage of advanced offload capabilities to accelerate networking, virtualization, storage and security tasks alike -- freeing up server CPUs for money-making applications.

"We are thrilled to see ConnectX and Ethernet SmartNICs exceed the one million parts shipment mark in a single quarter. We expect this number to continue and grow in the coming quarters as more of the market is transitioning to 25 Gb/s Ethernet and faster speeds," said Eyal Waldman, president and CEO of Mellanox Technologies. "The extensive portfolios of ConnectX cards and ICs, and BlueField IPUs, are positioned for a wide variety of data-center, cloud and AI applications, delivering maximum productivity, efficiency, scalability and return on investment. We're proud to be the only vendor to ship Ethernet NICs at speeds ranging from 10 to 200 Gb/s in production to multiple markets and applications."

Recently Introduced ConnectX-6 Dx and BlueField-2 to Fuel Further Growth

The ConnectX and BlueField families of Ethernet SmartNICs and IPUs provide high-throughput, low-latency server and storage connectivity. The recently introduced ConnectX-6 Dx and BlueField-2 are the next-generation cloud SmartNICs and I/O Processing Unit (IPU) solutions, delivering unprecedented data center security, performance and efficiency at massive scale, for any workload.

ConnectX-6 Dx is the world's leading secure cloud SmartNIC, which provides up to two ports of 25, 50 or 100Gb/s, or a single port of 200Gb/s Ethernet connectivity and PCIe 4.0 host connectivity. ConnectX-6 Dx's innovative hardware offload engines include IPsec and TLS inline data-in-motion encryption, advanced network virtualization, RoCE and NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF) storage accelerations.

The BlueField-2 IPU integrates all the advanced capabilities of ConnectX-6 Dx with an array of powerful Arm processor cores, high performance memory interfaces, and flexible processing capabilities in a single System-on-Chip (SoC), supporting both Ethernet and InfiniBand connectivity up to 200Gb/s. BlueField-2-based embedded controllers are ideal for building highly fficient and cost-effective flash storage, security, IoT and edge computing platforms. BlueField-2 SmartNICs can act as a coprocessor that puts a computer in front of the computer to transform bare-metal and virtualized environments using advanced software-defined networking, NVMe SNAP storage disaggregation, and enhanced security capabilities. Furthermore, BlueField-2 delivers unmatched performance and efficiency for AI workloads in the cloud or at the network edge.

Day 4, Cisco Live! - The Wrap

Day 4 was the final day of our first ever Cisco Live! We had a great show, with many great conversations and new connections with existing and potential end users, resellers, partners and job hunters.

Day 3, Cisco Live!

Day 3 of Cisco Live is history! For Fiber Mountain, we continued to enjoy visits from decision makers and influencers who were eager to share their data center and structured cabling challenges.

Day 2, Cisco Live!

Tuesday was Day 2 of Cisco Live for Fiber Mountain and we continued to experience high levels of traffic, with many high value decision makers and influencers visiting our booth. One very interesting difference from most conferences I attend is that there are no titles on anyone's show badges. This allows open conversations without people being pretentious. I think this is a very good idea.

Day 1, Cisco Live!

Fiber Mountain is exhibiting at Cisco Live! In Las Vegas for the first time ever! Our first day was hugely successful from just about any perspective - from quantity and quality of booth visitors to successful meetings with customers.
