SUNNYVALE, Calif. & YOKNEAM, Israel -- January 28, 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 it has been presented with two data
center interconnect awards: the ZDNet China Best Network Switch awarded to
Mellanox’s SX1024 non-blocking Top-of-Rack (ToR) 10/40Gb/s Ethernet Switch and
the China Network World 2012 Innovative Converged Network Solution for Cloud
awarded to Mellanox’s Virtual Protocol Interconnect® (VPI) end-to end solution
including ConnectX-3 adapters and SwitchX-2 switches for both FDR 56Gb/s
InfiniBand and 10/40Gb/s Ethernet based interconnect solutions.

Mellanox’s ConnectX-3 VPI adapters provide performance-leading FDR 56Gb/s
InfiniBand and 10/40GbE for unprecedented scalability and flexibility.
ConnectX-3’s innovative design, low power and flexible protocol capability
delivers the highest level of interconnect throughput while reducing system
power consumption and enabling cost-effective networking topologies. This
makes ConnectX-3 the preferred solution for high-performance computing, Web
2.0, cloud, virtualized data centers, database, storage, big data and
financial services.

The Mellanox SX1024, based on Mellanox’s SwitchX-2 switch silicon, is the
world’s first non-blocking ToR switch with 48 10GbE ports and 12 40GbE ports
in a 1U solution. The SX1024 enables data center IT managers to increase their
application performance and eliminate the forced congestion imposed by other
Ethernet switch solutions. As a result, the SX1024 was recognized by ZDNet
China as the most efficient 10/40GbE ToR switch.

China Network World awarded the Mellanox VPI solution, including ConnectX
interconnect adapters and SwitchX interconnect switch products, with its
‘Innovative Converged Network Award’ for cloud computing. The award was based
on the flexibility of supporting both FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand and 10/40Gb/s
Ethernet in a single interconnect solution, as well as Mellanox’s VPI
solution’s advanced application offloading and comprehensive management.

“It is an honor to be recognized by ZDNet China and China Network World for
our product excellence in the cloud and enterprise data center environments,”
said Gilad Shainer, vice president of market development at Mellanox
Technologies. “It’s a testament to the hard working teams at Mellanox who
continue to deliver leading server and storage interconnect technologies to
our customers.”

The annual ZDNet China and China Network World awards recognize vendors and
products that facilitate low latency and high efficiency across small
businesses and enterprise data centers in Asia.
