Mellanox Technologies on Monday announced the availability of new RDMA InfiniBand and Ethernet long-haul interconnect solutions as part of the company's MetroX product line. MetroX products enable long-reach, high-throughput RDMA connectivity within and between data centers across multiple geographically distributed sites. MetroX enables IT managers to effectively connect remote data centers together, and provide faster disaster recovery and better utilization of remote storage or compute infrastructures.
"The need for long-haul InfiniBand and Ethernet with RDMA connectivity continues to grow," said Gilad Shainer, vice president of market development at Mellanox Technologies. "The MetroX series extends InfiniBand and Ethernet lossless RDMA beyond a single data center network location. Data center expansion or Disaster Recovery (DR) sites can now benefit from Mellanox's fastest interconnect solutions with no performance degradation. Utilizing Mellanox high-throughput interconnect solutions, our customers are able to reduce their database recovery time from days to hours, and thus maintain their business continuity and gain a competitive edge."
The new systems are part of the MetroX long-haul interconnect solution family and include:
The two new systems are in addition to the recently announced MetroX TX6100 system, which supports 6 ports running 40Gb/s to a distance up to 10km.
MetroX joins Mellanox's Virtual Protocol Interconnect® (VPI) end-to-end interconnect portfolio and will be available during the second quarter of 2013.
