Key Markets:

 Enterprise Data Center: EDCs are facilities that house servers, storage, communications infrastructure equipment and embedded systems that enable deployment of commercial applications such as customer relationship management, financial trading and risk management applications, enterprise resource planning and E-commerce and web service applications. EDCs typically provide multiple data processing and storage resources to one or many organizations and are capable of supporting several applications at the same time.

Cloud Computing : Mellanox server and storage interconnect solutions have been designed to deliver the needed networking capabilities of bandwidth, latency and virtualization offloads for the cloud infrastructure. With networking solutions that deliver 56Gb/s throughput, 1us server-to-server or storage latency, and sophisticated I/O virtualization capabilities, Mellanox enables clouds providers to perform system provisioning, workloads migrations, and to support multiple user’s requests faster and in the most efficient way, all while bringing the best ROI for the cloud users.  .

Financial: Mellanox's solutions for financial services repeatedly demonstrate lower application latency, higher application throughput, and higher scalability in benchmark testing. While Mellanox offers solutions for both InfiniBand and 10GigE, InfiniBand continues to deliver the lowest latencies - as much as 30% lower than Ethernet-based solutions.
