With multiple manufacturing sites around the world, Mellanox Technologies wanted a testing, research, and design infrastructure that’s engineered for integration, easy data sharing, scalability, and unified support.
The multinational supplier of computer technology networking products that use InfiniBand and Ethernet technology needed to have the performance and reliability to accelerate product innovation. Mellanox also needed to reduce the time to market for the adapters, switches, software, cables, and silicon products it produces for markets including high-performance computing.
We looked for a cloud storage solution that could integrate with on-premises deployment. That is the main reason we came to NetApp. We examined a few vendor products and checked their offerings. NetApp was the most mature. It had capabilities on the cloud that competitors couldn’t offer.
Nir Boyarsky Mellanox storage team leader
The Mellanox storage team wanted a unified solution that was reliable, scalable, and cost effective. To address these requirements and to more quickly deliver innovative products for customers, Mellanox made a strategic decision to implement NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP® technology.
Mellanox uses Cloud Volumes ONTAP data management software for its production workloads and file shares as well as for disaster recovery and backup copies.
With NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP, Mellanox experienced a 69% reduction in the production data footprint by using data deduplication and now has 90% of the disaster recovery cold data tiered to lower-cost object storage.
