Mellanox Technologies Joins The Green Grid

Highly Efficient Interconnect Significantly Reduces Power within the Enterprise Data Center

SANTA CLARA, CA. and YOKNEAM, ISRAEL – March 11, 2008 – Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX; TASE: MLNX) a leading supplier of semiconductor-based, server and storage interconnect products, today announced its membership in The Green Grid, a global nonprofit consortium dedicated to advancing energy efficiency in data centers and business computing ecosystems.

In data centers today, multi-core servers are the fastest growing consumer of power with energy costs well exceeding the server purchase cost. Network intensive applications run­ning on the CPU and memory subsystems can quickly be bottlenecked by inadequate I/O resources, resulting in idle CPU and memory cycles wasting dollars and power. Mellanox’s interconnect products, based on InfiniBand and Ethernet technologies, play a key role in energy reduction in servers, storage and virtualized environments by reducing CPU processing overhead and providing the ability to carry all data center traffic types over a single, low power adapter as opposed to multiple adapters with a number of network infrastructure systems.

“High power consumption is a significant pain point for ever-expanding data centers. The industry has seen many recent innovations in the areas of cooler CPUs, server virtualization, and blade servers. With power consumption as low as 3.5W per 20Gb/s port, Mellanox's adapters have the ability to consolidate networking, storage and clustering I/O to complements those trends,” said Thad Omura, vice president of product marketing at Mellanox Technologies. “By taking advantage of how our interconnect products optimize multi-core server and storage power and performance, enterprises can optimize the number of servers needed for data center applications. Our membership in The Green Grid demonstrates our continued commitment to energy efficiency in enterprise data centers worldwide.”
