USA & ISRAEL: Mellanox Technologies Ltd has announced the availability of the Mellanox Virtual Modular Switch (VMS) solution, a world leading Ethernet data center aggregation switch infrastructure.
Mellanox VMS is a high-port density, flexible and scalable data center aggregation switching solution. Mellanox VMS provides up to 720 ports of 40 gigabits per second with latency lower than 2 microseconds while reducing capital expenses by up to 85 percent and power consumption by up to 90 percent.
Moreover, Mellanox VMS offers the best-in-class resiliency, maintaining up to over 90 percent of the aggregation bandwidth at the time of a switch failure, compared to traditional chassis-based switches.
According to Crehan Research’s Data Center Ethernet Switch reports, there has been a significant mix shift away from modular or chassis-based switches toward fixed switches, with fixed switches gaining over twenty points of share since 2008.
The Mellanox VMS solution is constructed by connecting Mellanox’s SwitchX-2 based 40 and 56 Gigabit Ethernet systems connected in a non-blocking topology and managed with the widely-used Puppet and Chef management applications.
