Xsight Labs plans to upend the data center switch market with a super-fast, programmable switch it said can meet the power and performance demands of cloud, high-performance computing and AI applications while also providing a flexible and scalable architecture. The Tel Aviv, Israel-based startup announced in March that it had raised a Series D funding round that was backed by several investors, including Intel Capital, Xilinx and Microsoft’s venture fund, M12. The startup launched out of stealth mode last December with the announcement that it is now sampling X1, what it said is the industry’s first switch to offer up to 25.6 terabits per second in speed. The startup said its switch silicon offers these fast speeds at very low power, with less than 300 watts required for the higher end.
