This week Mellanox announced that its ConnectX-2 EN 10 Gigabit Ethernet NICs and mezzanine adapter cards are available on IBM System x and BladeCenter servers.

“Our customers are looking to meet the challenges of today’s dynamic world, contain costs, deal with IT skill shortages and take full advantage of new performance-based technologies,” said Roland Hagan, vice president of System x servers at IBM. “IBM System x and BladeCenter servers, with Mellanox ConnectX-2 EN 10 Gigabit Ethernet NICs, provide leading performance, energy efficiency, scalability and manageability for a wide variety of applications that our clients demand in today’s business and government settings.”

The popularity of the IBM platforms makes this a significant win for Mellanox, who have added an array of 10GigE products to their lineup recently with the acquisition of Voltaire.
