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 its end-to-end FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand
is now deployed and live in the Stampede supercomputer at the Texas Advanced
Computing Center (TACC) at The University of Texas at Austin. Stampede is the
most powerful supercomputing system in the National Science Foundation Extreme
Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE), and one of the most
powerful supercomputing systems in the world. TACC introduced Stampede to the
public on March 27.

Stampede integrates thousands of individual Dell servers with Mellanox FDR
56Gb/s InfiniBand SwitchX based switches and ConnectX-3 adapter cards with PCI
Express 3.0 to drive performance of nearly 10 petaflops.

“The InfiniBand network was easy to deploy and delivers incredible application
performance on a consistent basis,” said Tommy Minyard, director of Advanced
Computing Systems, TACC. “Utilizing Mellanox FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand provides us
with extremely scalable, high performance — a critical element as Stampede is
designed to support hundreds of computationally- and data-intensive science
applications from around the United States and the world.”

“Stampede is one of the highest profile supercomputers being deployed in
2013,” said Gilad Shainer, vice president of marketing at Mellanox
Technologies. “Mellanox FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand is differentiated by the low
latency and accelerated speed which enables the fastest data delivery. With a
system the size of Stampede, where scalability is of the greatest of
importance, the role of InfiniBand is significant.”

Stampede supports national scientific research into weather forecasting,
climate modeling, drug discovery and energy exploration and production.
