SUNNYVALE, Calif. and YOKNEAM, Israel -- Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ:MLNX) (TASE:MLNX), a leading supplier of end-to-end connectivity solutions for data center servers and storage, today announced that Dell has selected its performance-leading 40Gb/s InfiniBand ConnectX® I/O mezzanine adapter and M3601Q InfiniScale® IV-based blade switches for the Dell™ 11th generation PowerEdge M610 and M710 blade servers and blade switches for the PowerEdge M1000e-series Modular Blade Enclosures.
