Visit Mellanox Technologies at the OCP Summit (January 28-29, 2014)

Visit Mellanox during the OCP Summit (booth #C21) from January 28-29 at the San Jose Convention Center to learn more about its OCP-compliant 10 and 40GbE NICs. Mellanox will also exhibit its SX1024-OCP, SwitchX®-2-based Top-of-Rack switch, which supports 48 10GbE SFP+ ports and up to 12 40GbE QSFP ports, enabling non-blocking connectivity within the OCP’s Open Rack, or alternatively, enabling 60 10GbE server ports when using QSFP+ to SFP+ breakout cables to increase rack efficiency for less bandwidth demanding applications. Mellanox will also exhibit its SX1036-OCP, SwitchX®-2-based spine switch, which supports 36 40GbE QSFP ports, enabling non-blocking connectivity between the racks. The new switches are also the first that support Open Network Install Environment (ONIE) over x86 processors, which will enable new levels of scalability and performance.
