SANTA CLARA, Calif. and YOKNEAM, Israel -- Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ:MLNX)(TASE:MLNX), a leading supplier of semiconductor-based, server and storage interconnect products, and Galactic® Computing, a leading provider of high-performance computing, enterprise server solutions and virtualized storage systems, today announced that Mellanox’s 20Gb/s InfiniBand adapters provide the low-latency, high-performance storage interconnect for Galactic Computing’s line of VSTORTM storage systems and gateways, providing an adaptive and responsive infrastructure for business continuity and disaster recovery applications such as remote mirroring and replication. VSTOR supports Fibre Channel, iSCSI, InfiniBand, SAS and NAS connections to servers allowing total flexibility in access. Mellanox InfiniBand adapters serve as the ideal choice for workloads that require high performance, efficiency and scalability.

With the VSTOR multi-protocol storage gateway, administrators can easily bridge a combination of iSCSI, InfiniBand, and Fibre Channel data sources to NAS, iSCSI, InfiniBand and Fibre Channel clients, connecting disparate elements of the storage infrastructure for ultimate deployment flexibility. The VSTOR gateway reduces downtime through the use of advanced multi-path I/O features, and enables virtualization capabilities across the existing storage infrastructure to deliver the most optimum utilization of your storage resources.

“CIOs are constantly under pressure to reduce costs, improve service levels, decrease data center complexity, all while continuing to optimize the use of their existing storage assets to improve efficiency and return on investment,” said Nelson Wong, General Manager, at Galactic Computing. “By utilizing Mellanox 20Gb/s InfiniBand, Galactic’s VSTOR storage systems and gateways can provide real world customer advantages such as increased application performance, reduced backup times, greater system consolidation, lower power consumption and total cost of ownership, while protecting previous investments in legacy Fibre Channel, iSCSI and NAS storage devices.”
