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 availability of L3
software features in MLNX-OS, the company’s switch software stack. The
addition of these Ethernet routing protocols enables end-users to build large
Ethernet networks that leverage Mellanox’s SwitchX® based 10/40GbE switch
systems for superior throughput, latency and power. NVGRE, VXLAN and similar
technologies run on top of Mellanox L2/L3 Ethernet switches to enable IP-based
scalable, fully virtualized networks.

Storage clusters are under constant demand for higher throughput rates and
speeds to increase the performance and efficiency of the entire cluster. L3
implementation over Mellanox’s SwitchX Ethernet switch system portfolio
enables network administrators to build a robust, scalable and high performing
end-to-end solution at speeds up to 56Gb/s.

“Our new routing capabilities help us provide a great solution for the growing
needs for 40GbE, non-blocking storage networks, typically built in a CLOS-3
topology, that leverage SwitchX’s 4Tb/s switching/routing capacity,” said
Michael Kagan, CTO at Mellanox Technologies. “Providing IP-based scalable
10/40GbE and even 56GbE networks increases Mellanox's ability to deliver
solutions for the increasing need of bandwidth sensitive applications.”
