SUNNYVALE, Calif. & YOKNEAM, Israel -- October 14, 2013

Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX), a leading supplier of
high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data center servers
and storage systems, today announced that running Windows Server 2012 R2 SMB
Direct over Mellanox’s end-to-end FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand solution accelerates
virtual machine (VM) live migration by 10X vs. Windows Server 2012. Windows
Server 2012 R2 SMB Direct also doubles the I/O Operations per Second (IOPS)
and reduces the CPU cycles required to transfer data by 17 percent. Those
impressive performance results have been achieved in conjunction with Mellanox
Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) technology with Windows Server 2012 R2, and
they demonstrate the productivity gain that InfiniBand enables in virtualized
data centers when running over Microsoft Hyper-V.

“We are happy to see the new performance records of SMB Direct in Windows
Server 2012 R2 and the proliferation of the technology to other areas like VM
live migration,” said Kevin Deierling, vice president of marketing at Mellanox
Technologies. “Utilizing Mellanox’s RDMA-based interconnect solutions and
Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2, end-users can increase their application
performance, improve their data center system efficiency, as well as
consolidate their server and storage network infrastructure over a single-wire
network for optimal CAPEX and OPEX savings.”

“Windows Server 2012 R2 furthers the groundbreaking innovations begun in
Windows Server 2012,” said Jose Barreto, Principal Program Manager, Cloud and
Enterprise, at Microsoft. “We are pleased to continue our relationship with
Mellanox to deliver impressive networking performance improvements.”

Mellanox’s leading FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand interconnect solution includes the
SwitchX®-based SX6036 and SX6012 switches, and ConnectX®-3/ConnectX-3 Pro
56Gb/s adapters provide greater performance when running enterprise data
center applications. Mellanox’s FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand solutions are available
