It was a great event for Mellanox from all perspectives; we had a presentation, were part of the NFV panel, honored with an award and received a lot of valuable feedback about our technology.

Our success is a result of team work lead by a committed group of hard working professional engineers that are part of my group at Mellanox. Currently, we are working on the development of Mellanox’s products such as UFM and NEO as well as open source projects such as OpenStack, SDN controllers and configuration management.
