SOLUTION OFFERING

Seagate, combined with Mellanox's high-performance Ethernet and InfiniBand solutions, provides superior application performance for customers in the high-performance computing, web 2.0, virtualized data center, cloud, storage, and financial services markets. All popular network speeds are fully supported including 10, 25, 40, 50 and 100Gb/s.

Our joint solutions range across multiple deployments and workloads, such as OpenStack, virtualization, Lustre, and Oracle. By supporting an increasing number of OpenStack cloud network deployments together, Seagate and Mellanox to meet the performance, density and cost needs of open source deployments. Mellanox and Seagate also collaborate on Red Hat Ceph Storage benchmarking projects to demonstrate the performance with various combinations of Seagate flash and Mellanox networks with very compelling results. Seagate and Mellanox also demonstrate highly dense and accelerated VDI deployments as well as acceleration of Oracle RAC.

Another key attribute with Mellanox is its best- in-class performance using smart hardware offloads such as Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA). RDMA allows data to be written from one machine directly into the memory of another system. This eliminates duplicate data copies and bypasses many of the operating systems and network stacks that slow down data transfers. Mellanox switches open up network connections with non-blocking, cut-through performance, including predictably low latency and fair bandwidth allocation at all packet sizes. By removing these network bottlenecks, users can seize the complete performance benefits offered by Seagate flash.

Fast storage often needs a fast network, and likewise a fast network offers the most benefit with fast storage. The Seagate and Mellanox collaboration is a reflection of this need and, together, we enable our joint customers to deploy world-leading solutions.
