Mellanox Accelerates Supercomputers

RENO, Nev. -- Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ:MLNX) (TASE:MLNX), a leading supplier of semiconductor-based, server and storage interconnect products, today announced InfiniBand continues to be the fastest growing cluster interconnect according to the 30th edition of the TOP500 list of the world’s most powerful computers. 125 supercomputers (25% of the list) are connected with InfiniBand, 52% more than the 82 supercomputers reported on the November 2006 list. The total number of InfiniBand connected CPU cores on the list has grown from 137K in 2006 to 340K in 2007 (148% yearly growth) which highlights the increasing demand for InfiniBand to maximize computing resources and performance.

“InfiniBand continues to be the only growing high-speed interconnect, and a natural choice for high performance clusters, with 52% growth since November 2006, due to its world leading performance, efficiency and scalability characteristics that are demanded by multi-core servers and storage systems,” said Eyal Waldman, president, chairman and CEO of Mellanox Technologies. “Mellanox’s revenue growth during 2007 demonstrates continued strong demand in HPC for our InfiniBand interconnect products as well as our growth in enterprise data centers and embedded markets. With the availability of our 40Gb/s InfiniBand solutions expected in the latter part of 2008, Mellanox-based solutions are expected to continue to deliver the ever-increasing I/O performance needs of world leading research and educational centers and commercial data centers.”
