Mellanox: High VM Performance In Virtualized Environments

Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Mellanox Technologies said at VMworld that its ConnextX-3 40-GbE driver has been integrated into VMware vSphere 5.5 for increased performance in virtualized data centers.

Mellanox said tests showed a sustainable rate of over 37 Gbps of throughput using servers equipped with Mellanox’s ConnectX-3 40-GbE network interface cards over the company's SwitchX 40-GbE switches and the company’s high-performance QSFP+ cables.

When compared to 10 GbE, the new solution allows four times as many virtual machines to run on a server, Mellanox said.
