SALT LAKE CITY -- November 12, 2012

SC12 -- Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX; TASE: MLNX), a leading
supplier of high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data
center servers and storage systems, today announced its Unified Fabric
Manager™ (UFM™) appliance with Software Defined Networking support (UFM-SDN),
allowing IT administrators to effectively manage and optimize their data
center resources from a centralized place. The UFM-SDN appliance will be
released along with the next generation of Mellanox’s UFM software, version
4.0. The UFM-SDN appliance with UFM 4.0 enables any OS operated data center to
increase its interconnect management effectiveness. Among the new extended
capabilities of UFM 4.0 are monitoring history and multi-site management
capabilities. For example:

  *Performance and health information can be stored in a separate database
    for on-going tracking
  *Multi-site support can provide one pane of glass for monitoring multiple
    sites via one central console

UFM 4.0 also brings a new form factor for the UFM software. Now, sold as a
Mellanox appliance with the familiar MLNX-OS™ interface, it will enable
customers to gain UFM benefits out-of-the-box. The UFM-SDN Appliance is
agnostic to the cluster operating system and releases the end-user from the
installation and O/S compatibility hassles. The UFM-SDN appliance will come in
several sizes for managing various cluster sizes.

“The UFM-SDN appliance and the new UFM 4.0 software release bring new means
for centralized and compensative interconnect management for enterprise data
centers of any size,” said Gilad Shainer, vice president of market development
at Mellanox Technologies. “The UFM-SDN appliance can help reduce data center
deployment time, help improve its performance and provide the capability to
monitor and optimize in a real time manner, all in an easy-install package and
with built-in support for SDN features.”

The UFM-SDN Appliance and UFM 4.0 software will be available December 2012.
