SUNNYVALE, Calif. & YOKNEAM, Israel -- January 21, 2013

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 industry and performance-leading
InfiniBand solutions have been integrated in Australian cloud service
provider, OrionVM, enterprise private and public clouds, who is now
standardizing on InfiniBand for their enterprise deployments around the world.
OrionVM’s customers range from government agencies and web services providers
to financial services organizations in worldwide deployments.

OrionVM provides customers with a cloud platform to build and scale
applications and websites on demand, instead of managing servers and networks.
Mellanox InfiniBand enabled OrionVM to reduce the price point at which they
were able to offer solutions to customers. Utilizing InfiniBand and their
distributed storage system, OrionVM is able to offer customers a significantly
higher performance cloud computing platform at a lower price. Best of all, the
use of InfiniBand has reduced OrionVM’s cost of deployment and decreased the
complexity within their data center environments.

“OrionVM is moving towards using InfiniBand in all of its cloud services
offerings,” said Sheng Yeo, OrionVM Managing Director. “We’re looking to offer
our customers the highest bandwidth, lowest latency solutions, to enable
leading and scalable application performance.”

OrionVM has been using InfiniBand within its own data center for the past 2.5
years, conducting research around use of the interconnect for distributed
storage and scalable cloud infrastructures. Due to InfiniBand’s high levels of
return on investment and superior application cost/performance, OrionVM
decided to use InfiniBand as the core of the company offering over 10 or 40
Gigabit Ethernet.

“OrionVM conducted elaborate testing on Mellanox InfiniBand solutions, using a
variety of deployment scenarios,” said Marc Sultzbaugh, senior vice president
of worldwide sales at Mellanox Technologies. “Looking at the test results,
InfiniBand’s key benefits – extreme low latency, scalability, high throughput
per port and price/performance –were apparent. Mellanox InfiniBand was the
obvious choice for OrionVM and for all customers looking to deploy cloud
computing solutions with high-performance compute and high-capacity storage.”
