  Mellanox Introduces the World’s First 100Gb/s EDR InfiniBand Switch

 Switch-IB™ provides leading throughput, latency, density and scalability to
   meet the needs of next-generation HPC, Web 2.0, database and cloud data

International Supercomputing Conference 2014

LEIPZIG, Germany -- June 23, 2014

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 Switch-IB, the next generation of its
InfiniBand switch IC optimized for HPC, Web 2.0, database and cloud data
centers, and the first-ever switch IC capable of 100Gb/s per port speeds.
Switch-IB is the world’s fastest switch with 36-ports of 100Gb/s to provide
7.2Tb/s of switching capacity – 250 percent higher than the nearest
alternative – with industry-low 130ns of latency and power consumption.
Switch-IB is also the first to introduce router capabilities that enable full
isolation and scalability to meet tomorrow’s needs of hundreds-of-thousand
node clusters and beyond.

With the exponential growth of data being generated around the world and the
increase of applications that can take advantage of real-time massive data
processing for high performance, data analytics, business intelligence,
national security and ‘Internet of Things’ applications, the market demands
faster and more efficient interconnect solutions.

Switch-IB enables application managers to use the power of data. It integrates
144 SerDes which can operate at 1Gb/s to 25Gb/s speeds per lane and delivers
5.4 billion packets per second, making Switch-IB the best solution for
high-performance computing, cloud, Web 2.0, database and storage centers.
Switch-IB enables these centers to deliver high application performance, to
become more efficient, and to reduce their expenses.

“The amount of global digital information created grew 6X over the last five
years to nearly 6 Zettabytes in 2014,” said Gilad Shainer, vice president of
marketing at Mellanox Technologies. “Mellanox’s fast interconnect technology
is a full generation ahead of the competition in terms of performance and
return-on-investment advantages it brings to IT and applications managers.”

“Seconds matter when you’re waiting for results,” said Scott Misage, general
manager, high performance computing, HP. “HP’s new Apollo family of products
will not only support Mellanox’s new IC capable 100Gb/s switch but deliver up
to four times the performance throughput and reduce both latency and power

“The phenomenon of Big Data can induce a significant increase in latency in
application workflows, creating a ceiling on application efficiency and
lengthening time to solution,” said David Turek, vice president of advanced
computing, IBM. “Any tools that target latency reduction will be of
considerable utility in the evolution of forthcoming hardware designs.”

In addition to its high performance, Switch-IB also enables IT managers to
program and centralize their server and storage interconnect management to
dramatically reduce their operational expenses. This process allows the
removal of congestion and bottlenecks on the network.

Safe Harbor Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of

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

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.
