(NASDAQ:MLNX) (TASE:MLNX), a leading supplier of semiconductor-based server and storage interconnect products, today announced that its InfiniScale® IV switch IC, introduced less than three months ago, has been adopted by HP due to its unparallel scalability and enhanced communication features that provide uncompromised performance capabilities for high-density computing infrastructures. The new HP BLc 4X DDR IB Gen 2 Switch for HP BladeSystem c-Class provides superior server-to-server and server-to-storage I/O connectivity and enables green data centers and efficient high-performance computing. According to IDC1, blade servers continue to be the fastest-growing segment of the server market with 1.1 million units expected to ship in 2008, growing to 2.6 million units in 2011 – a unit CAGR of 32.8%.

“Mellanox’s InfiniScale IV switch silicon device was architected to address the massive scale-out demands of data centers and high-performance compute centers that require the best price-performance and most energy efficient interconnect,” said Wayne Augsburger, vice president of business development at Mellanox Technologies. “Organizations using HP server and storage blades and the new HP BLc 4X DDR IB Gen 2 Switch should realize the potential of their application environments, including data warehousing, financial services, government and education, industrial design and manufacturing, life sciences, and web serving and collaboration.”
