  Mellanox Introduces HPC-X Scalable Software Toolkit for High-Performance
  Computing Platforms and Applications

 Comprehensive HPC software suite demonstrates more than 50 percent increased
                    performance with leading applications

International Supercomputing Conference 2014

LEIPZIG, Germany -- June 23, 2014

Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX), a leading supplier of end-to-end
interconnect solutions for data center servers and storage systems, today
announced the availability of HPC-X™ Scalable Software Toolkit, a
comprehensive software suite for high-performance computing environments,
which provides enhancements to significantly increase the scalability and
performance of message communications in the network.

HPC-X provides complete communication libraries to support MPI, SHMEM and PGAS
programming languages, as well as performance accelerators that take advantage
of Mellanox’s scalable interconnect solutions. HPC-X provides support for
other interconnect solutions as well, based on the Ethernet and InfiniBand
standards.

HPC-X Scalable Software Toolkit components and accelerators include:

  *Mellanox ScalableMPI - Message Passing Interface based on Open MPI
  *Mellanox ScalableSHMEM - One-sided communications library
  *Mellanox ScaleableUPC - UPC parallel programming language library based on
    Berkeley UPC
  *Mellanox MXM - Messaging Accelerator optimized for underlying hardware
  *Mellanox FCA - Fabric Collectives Accelerator supporting MPI-3
  *Mellanox IPM - Integrated Performance Monitoring and additional
    benchmarking tools to help users fine tune their HPC environment

“HPC-X enables you to rapidly deploy and deliver maximum application
performance without the complexity and costs of licensed third-party tools and
libraries,” said Scot Schultz, director of HPC and technical computing at
Mellanox. “Users can now solve their most complex problems in reduced time and
scale their solutions more efficiently.”

The benefits of HPC-X can easily be seen even at lower node counts compared to
running with a standard version of Open MPI. OpenFOAM, a popular open-source
computational fluid dynamics code used by both commercial and academic
organizations, demonstrated a 58 percent productivity boost with HPC-X at just
16 nodes. LS-DYNA, a popular commercial general-purpose finite element program
used by industry leaders in automotive and aerospace to analyze complex
vehicle designs, demonstrated improved scalability and 76 percent improved
productivity with HPC-X at only 32 nodes. The effects that HPC-X will
demonstrate can be even greater with larger scale system deployments.

Safe Harbor Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of
1995:

Certain matters discussed in this press release are forward-looking
statements, including statements related to the need for high-performance data
centers, Web 2.0, cloud and storage infrastructures to scale their 40Gb/s and
56Gb/s interconnect to 100Gb/s to address the exponential growth in data and
the acceleration of large scale data center deployments.

These forward-looking statements are based on our current expectations,
estimates and projections about our industry and business, management’s
beliefs and certain assumptions made by us, all of which are subject to
change.

Forward-looking statements can often be identified by words such as
“projects,” “anticipates,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “predicts,”
“believes,” “seeks,” “estimates,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “would,” “could,”
“potential,” “continue,” “ongoing,” similar expressions and variations or
negatives of these words. These forward-looking statements are not guarantees
of future results and are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions that
could cause our actual results to differ materially and adversely from those
expressed in any forward-looking statement.

The risks and uncertainties that could cause our results to differ materially
from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements include the
continued expansion of our product line, customer base and the total available
market of our products, the continued growth in demand for our products, the
continued, increased demand for industry standards-based technology, our
ability to react to trends and challenges in our business and the markets in
which we operate, our ability to anticipate market needs or develop new or
enhanced products to meet those needs, the adoption rate of our products, our
ability to establish and maintain successful relationships with our OEM
partners, our ability to effectively compete in our industry, fluctuations in
demand, sales cycles and prices for our products and services, our success
converting design wins to revenue-generating product shipments, the continued
launch and volume ramp of large customer sales opportunities, and our ability
to protect our intellectual property rights. Furthermore, the majority of our
quarterly revenues are derived from customer orders received and fulfilled in
the same quarterly period. We have limited visibility into actual end-user
demand as such demand impacts us and our OEM customer inventory balances in
any given quarter. Consequently, this introduces risk and uncertainty into our
revenue and production forecasts and business planning and could negatively
impact our financial results. In addition, current uncertainty in the global
economic environment poses a risk to the overall economy as businesses may
defer purchases in response to tighter credit conditions, changing overall
demand for our products, and negative financial news. Consequently, our
results could differ materially from our prior results due to these general
economic and market conditions, political events and other risks and
uncertainties described more fully in our documents filed with or furnished to
the Securities and Exchange Commission.

More information about the risks, uncertainties and assumptions that may
impact our business is set forth in our annual report on Form 10-K filed with
the SEC on February 28, 2014. All forward-looking statements in this press
release are based on information available to us as of the date hereof, and we
assume no obligation to update these forward-looking statements.
