Mellanox Open Composable Networks
Information Technology (IT) needs to move at the speed of people’s imagination to be the enabler, not the inhibitor, of innovations. IT infrastructure has become the critical foundation that not only guarantees service quality but also powers agile innovation and provides competitive differentiation. As a result, people are looking for ways to quickly and easily customize their IT infrastructure to set them apart from their competitors.
Successful businesses embrace automation to enable customizing their IT infrastructure on demand and achieve faster time to market, flexibility and optimal application performance. Advances are being made in different aspects of IT infrastructure. It started with compute/servers, and has started to expand into storage and networking.
Mellanox Open Composable Networks leverages the design principles of hyper-scale web and cloud service providers, and enable our customers to achieve web-scale efficiency as if they are standing on the shoulders of these giants.
