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 that Teradata has chosen its InfiniBand
interconnect solution to accelerate the Teradata Aster Big Analytics
Appliance. The Teradata Aster Big Analytics Appliance is designed for
demanding analytics which require high computational power and the fastest
data movement. Assisted by Mellanox InfiniBand, the Teradata appliance offers
up to 19 times better data throughput and performs analytics up to 35 times
faster than typical off-the-shelf commodity bundles.

“Teradata Aster Big Analytics Appliance is part of a truly unified,
high-performance big data analytics architecture for the enterprise and will
help customers achieve business value,” said Carson Schmidt, vice president of
platform engineering at Teradata. “The Mellanox InfiniBand interconnect is the
best choice to enable the performance that is needed to analyze big data at a
speed that no other analytic platform can deliver. This performance maximizes
the return on investment and accelerates time to value.”

Mellanox’s InfiniBand interconnect technology provides greater performance and
reduced CPU overhead utilizing Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) technology.
Mellanox’s interconnect technologies deployed in the Teradata Aster Big
Analytics Appliance include ConnectX®-2 InfiniBand adapters and Mellanox
InfiniBand switches, running at 40Gb/s InfiniBand speeds.

market development at Mellanox Technologies. “We are delighted to see that our
InfiniBand interconnect solution, integrated with Teradata Aster Big Analytics
Appliance, provides the highest performance, scalability and reliability to
