Today Mellanox announced new additions to its MetroX long-haul interconnect product family to enable full coverage for longer distances. MetroX systems enable localization of remote data center sites, from 1km to 80km, providing high-performance, high-volume data sharing between distant sites.
MetroX is the perfect cost-effective, low power, easily managed solution that enables today’s data centers to run over local and distributed RDMA InfiniBand and Ethernet fabrics, with management under a single unified network infrastructure,” said Gilad Shainer, vice president of marketing at Mellanox. “With MetroX, organizations can move from the paradigm of multiple, disconnected, localized data centers to a single multi-point meshed mega-datacenter, resulting in higher utilization and cost savings.”
The new products include the MetroDX TX6000, which provides up to 16 ports of 40Gb/s to distances of 1km, and the MetroX TX6100, a campus system with up to 6 ports of 40Gb/s to distances of 10km.
