In a move to prime their Ethernet products for the upcoming Intel Romley/Sandy Bridge chips with PCI Express 3.0, Mellanox today announced a new pricing structure and expanded channel for their end-to-end 10 Gigabit Ethernet solutions. With newly announced prices as low as $188 per port, Mellanox is looking to ride “significant movement towards 10GbE” that analysts are predicting for 2012.
The launch of the Intel Romley and Sandy Bridge platform in the coming months is going to give the industry a strong push towards faster interconnect speeds,” said Eyal Waldman, chairman, president and CEO of Mellanox Technologies. “For data center managers, 10GbE is the minimum data rate they should be considering for all deployments this year. Mellanox products and solutions are delivering 10GbE and higher data rates today – providing better application performance, lower power consumption and improved ROI.”
