The Truth Behind the E-Commerce Deal Silent Killer

We’ve all heard of the big website crashes that cost e-commerce giants millions and even billions in lost sales. Recent outages confirm this: like Macy’s in 2016, the recent Target website crash, and Lowe’s site down on Black Friday. Even e-commerce giant Amazon is not immune from outages, when just one hour of downtime on […]


Accelerating Bare Metal Kubernetes Workloads, the Right Way

Mellanox ConnectX and BlueField SmartNICs Deliver Cloud-Native, Hardware-Accelerated Networking for Bare-Metal Kubernetes

In my previous Kubernetes blog I discussed the benefits of using BlueField SmartNICs to simplify provisioning of Kubernetes clusters in bare-metal infrastructures. A key takeaway from this blog was the current rapid shift toward bare metal Kubernetes, for delivering high-performance workloads across public, on-prem and edge environments. The topic is still very much trending as […]


Test drive your five-star deep learning infrastructure today!

Introducing Test, a five star deep learning infrastructure program from Trace3, NetApp, Mellanox, Nvidia and Fletential.

When we search for a hotel in an unfamiliar place, we tend to decide based on the rating. A five-star rating would assure us of a certain level of security, comfort, and quality. In the same way, as businesses adopt new technologies such as deep learning infrastructure, a five-star infrastructure would assure a certain level […]


Open Ethernet at Full Speed with Leaf-Spine Architecture Cumulus and SONiC VXLAN EVPN Interoperate Over Mellanox

Should we be worried when deploying an open source network operating system in production? Microsoft is not worried, Facebook is not worried, successful medium & large size companies in Russia, France and China are not worried. They are all deploying SONiC and Linux Switch in production data centers. They are leading a powerful trend in […]


Smarter Edge Computing Needs a Smarter Network

NVIDIA announces the EGX platform and ecosystem for smarter edge computing

Demand for edge computing is growing rapidly because people increasingly need to analyze and use data where it’s created instead of trying to send it back to a data center. New applications cannot wait for the data to travel all the way to a centralized server, wait for it to be analyzed, then wait for […]


Mellanox Demonstrates New 400G DR4 and 200G SR4 Optical Transceivers with High Data Reliability at ECOC’19

Mellanox is demonstrating new LinkX products as well as showcasing the full line of 100/200/400G cables and optical transceivers at the European Convention for Optical Communications (ECOC) Sept 21st in Dublin, Ireland. Here’s a look at what to expect at our booth: An active DACs, QSA56 port adapters and 400G DR4 transceivers announcement: Active DAC […]


Higher Quality Video Requires Ethernet Video Fabric

The adoption of 4K and soon 8K video formats and the transition from Serial Digital Interface (SDI) to IP-based broadcasting drive the need for efficient, higher performance networking technologies that can stream more bits per second in real-time. This is why you should consider using Mellanox’s Ethernet Video Fabric with emerging Ethernet speeds of 25, […]


True Record Setting Hyperconverged Performance

We’re living at a fascinating point in time for data center development. Modern data centers continue to evolve from physical to virtual, cloud infrastructure expand from public, private and into hybrid deployments and we are witnessing a shift from spinning storage media to an age of Flash. Moreover, new types of compute platforms allowing for […]


The End of Moore’s Law and the Return of Cleverness

Giant Interposer Cited as Proof that Moore’s Law Continues

In my previous “Call Me Stupid …” blog, I outlined why I think Moore’s Law is done, effectively ended as the driving force behind an exponential improvement in semiconductors every two years. So if Moore’s Law is slowing down and we can’t count on ever-faster processors every year, what does it mean for technologists and […]
