Mellanox to Showcase Cloud Infrastructure Efficiency With Production-Ready SONiC Over Spectrum Open Ethernet Switches

SUNNYVALE, Calif. & YOKNEAM, Israel–()–Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX), a number one provider of high-performance, end-to-end sensible interconnect options for information heart servers and storage techniques, as we speak introduced that it’ll work with Microsoft to showcase the Open Networking resolution with its flagship Open Compute Project (OCP) suitable Spectrum Ethernet Switches operating production-ready networking working system based mostly on Microsoft’s Software for Open Networking within the Cloud (SONiC) at 10, 25, 40, 50 and 100Gb/s velocity. This mixed resolution demonstrates continued momentum behind the Open Ethernet initiative, as highlighted by interoperability, excessive availability, operational simplicity, and end-to-end environment friendly information motion based mostly on Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) over Converged Ethernet (RoCE).

Mellanox has been an lively contributor to OCP for the reason that inception of the undertaking, with key improvements in host networking options supporting the widest vary of OCP server platforms, and open networking initiatives similar to Microsoft’s Switch Abstraction Interface (SAI) and SONiC. Through collaboration with Microsoft and different open networking tools distributors, Mellanox has helped to improve these open cloud networking software program and API/SDK’s, readying them for deployment in manufacturing networks.

In addition, Mellanox has labored with Microsoft to reveal the important thing position that high-performance networking performs in bettering complete cloud infrastructure effectivity. In a demo led by Mellanox and with participation from Microsoft, quicker and better effectivity information motion leveraging RoCE is proven to considerably improve storage entry and purposes similar to digital machine Live Migration. The excessive throughput, low and constant latency, and revolutionary congestion administration implementation of Mellanox Spectrum Ethernet swap have made it your best option for supporting highly-efficient RoCE-based deployments.

“Open Ethernet has been a Mellanox vision that is well-aligned with our hyperscale customers and partners, and we have invested significant resources to make it come to fruition,” stated Amir Prescher, senior vice chairman of enterprise growth and common supervisor of the interconnect enterprise, Mellanox Technologies. “As a key switch platform interoperable with SONiC, the Mellanox Spectrum stands out due to its outstanding performance and predictability, and the higher total infrastructure efficiency it enables by having the best end-to-end support of RoCE.”

“Through open collaboration with Mellanox and other contributors to the SONiC open source project, we’ve helped enhance the scale, stability and usability of this cloud networking software stack,” stated Yousef Khalidi, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Corp. “We are pleased to see production deployment of a switch operating system based on SONiC powering Microsoft infrastructure and we look forward to a broader footprint of SONiC within Microsoft.”
