Cloud Networking, Done Right – How Medallia Leveraged Mellanox & Cumulus to Achieve Best in Class Cloud Networking Efficiencies
The new generation of cloud providers, Software as a Service (SaaS) providers, and advanced digital enterprises are building their cloud networks differently, so that they can get the most from their cloud-native applications, real-time intelligent data analytics, and blazing fast flash storage devices. In this webinar, Mellanox showcased how one of their most innovative customers, Medallia, achieved total infrastructure efficiency, deployment flexibility and operational simplicity with Mellanox end-to-end 50/100G cloud network fabric.
Medallia leverages cutting-edge technologies to support its rapid growth and unique ability to enable businesses to slice and dice terabytes of customer feedback data from multiple channels, any way they want, at any time they desire, with real-time responses. Its containerized and distributed SaaS application, combined with the extremely large amount of data to crunch, dictated an infrastructure that is horizontally scalable, and in turn, a high-performance network.
Medallia selected Mellanox Spectrum Ethernet switches, ConnectX-4 Ethernet adapters, and LinkX cables as the foundation to build its next-generation non-blocking spine-leaf switch fabric that delivers 50Gb/s to the server and 100Gb/s for aggregation. We will take a dive deep into the design considerations behind adoption of high-performance networking, the calculations done to prove better economics when comparing 50G to 40G speed options, the motivation behind embracing open networking with Cumulus Linux and Mellanox Spectrum switches, and the streamlined support from an end-to-end data center interconnect provider.
