Mellanox Technologies, provider of high-performance, end-to-end interconnect solutions for data center servers and storage systems, has announced SwitchX-2, the next generation of their switch silicon optimized for Software Defined Networking (SDN). Mellanox’s new SwitchX-2 is equipped with advanced capabilities of remote configurable routing tables, lossless and congestion free networks, efficient control planes, and SDNoptimized software interfaces. Additionally, it gives IT managers the ability to program and centralize their server and storage interconnect management and to significantly reduce operational expenses by completely virtualizing their data center network. According to IDC, the broader SDN/OpenFlow market is predicted to reach $2 billion by 2016, and a substantial portion of this growth will be in network infrastructure.
