Mellanox Scale-Out Open Ethernet Products 
10/25/40/50/56/100Gb/s Open Ethernet Switch Systems

The Mellanox Open Ethernet switch family delivers the highest performance and port density with a complete chassis like and robust fabric management solution enabling converged data centers to operate at any scale while reducing operational costs and infrastructure complexity. This family includes a broad portfolio of Top-of-Rack (TOR) switches that range from 12 to 64 ports, with Ethernet data rates of 1GbE, 10GbE, 25GbE, 40GbE, 50GbE, 56GbE and 100GbE per port making many models an excellent macro-segmentation extension to VMware's NSX.

These switches allow the building of cost-effective and scalable switch fabrics, from a few nodes to tens-of-thousands of nodes.  Mellanox makes fabric management as easy as possible by providing the lowest latency and highest bandwidth. This allows IT managers to simplify operations creating hyper-dynamic IP Fabrics that help with serving the company's business initiatives, while avoiding networking issues such as congestion and the inefficiencies generated by adding complicated rules and limitations.
