LAS VEGAS -- May 07, 2013

Interop – 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 the next step in its
Virtual Protocol Interconnect® (VPI®) solution strategy, with the availability
of an integrated InfiniBand to Ethernet gateway in its SwitchX®-based
InfiniBand and Ethernet switch systems. With the new gateway functionality,
the Mellanox edge switches can now be used for both InfiniBand and Ethernet
switches at the same time with an integrated gateway capability between the
two networks. Together with Mellanox’s ConnectX®-3 VPI interconnect adapters,
IT managers can take advantage of Mellanox’s highly efficient end-to-end
interconnect solutions for their unified and flexible InfiniBand and Ethernet
data centers.

Built with Mellanox’s SwitchX-based switches, the InfiniBand to Ethernet
gateway software license, or system, provides full port flexibility to toggle
between 56Gb/s InfiniBand and either 10, 40 and 56Gb/s Ethernet with low 400ns

Mellanox’s gateway software license provides the following features:

  *VPI on the Box - converts entire InfiniBand switch to Ethernet switch and
    vice versa
  *VPI per Port – flexible port definition of InfiniBand and Ethernet fabrics
    on one system
  *VPI Gateway – flexible port definition of InfiniBand and Ethernet fabrics
    with gateway capabilities between the two fabrics

“Mellanox’s new InfiniBand to Ethernet gateway functionality built within
Mellanox switches provides the most cost-effective, high-performance solution
for data center unified connectivity solutions,” said Gilad Shainer, vice
president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies. “Mellanox’s systems enable
data centers to operate at 56Gb/s network speeds while seamlessly connecting
to 1, 10 and 40 Gigabit Ethernet networks. Existing LAN infrastructures and
management practices can be preserved, easing deployment and providing
significant return-on-investment.”

The InfiniBand to Ethernet Gateway license is available today. The InfiniBand
to Ethernet gateway system will be available in the third quarter of 2013.
