The Generation of Open Ethernet

  1. 1. The Generation of Open Ethernet SC13
  2. 2. The Generation of Open Ethernet Open Ethernet is an Alternative to a Market Filled with Closed (Code) Solutions Open Ethernet will Change the Way we Manage our Data Centers and Networks Welcome to the Generation of Open Ethernet © 2013 Mellanox Technologies 2
  3. 3. Open Source Enables a Self-Enhancing Diversity of Solutions Past © 2013 Mellanox Technologies Future 3
  4. 4. Open Source Enables New Solutions / Trends / Technologies Default For All © 2013 Mellanox Technologies Differentiation, Value, Community 4
  5. 5. What is Open Ethernet?  Freedom to choose switch ingredients • • • • Switch Silicon Hardware Operating System Protocol Stack  Scale at lower costs © 2013 Mellanox Technologies 5
  6. 6. Open Ethernet – The Ability to Choose Open Ethernet MLNX-OS Open SDK API Open source code Software Stack on the Switch + OF 3rd party OS Open OS Open source Linux based network Maximum reliability BNT Extreme Juniper Cumulus Pica8 Maximum flexibility © 2013 Mellanox Technologies 6
  7. 7. Open Ethernet Solutions Open Source Software 3rd Party Vendor Software Ethernet Switch SDK Ethernet Switch SDK © 2013 Mellanox Technologies Switch Vendor Software Open Source Based Ethernet Switch 7
  8. 8. The Train Has Left The Station  “John Chambers asked his top execs to study the impact an all-out embrace of software-defined networking (SDN) would have on Cisco (CSCO -0.5%). Their reported conclusion: Such a move would turn Cisco from a "$43 billion business into a $22 billion business.“  Source: Business Insider, October 31st © 2013 Mellanox Technologies 8
  9. 9. Once Software Does The Job, It is all about Cost & Scale 400-nodes Cluster Example Topology Translates to 75% Cost Savings for the overall Network © 2013 Mellanox Technologies 9
  10. 10. Summary 1. Choose Your Software/Hardware Components 2. Choose The Most Cost-Effective Hardware © 2013 Mellanox Technologies 10
  11. 11. IC Superiority  SwitchX IC family – clear market leader • Highest switching capacity • Lowest power per Gb/s • Lowest latency  Competitor (40GbE IC) falls behind in these categories • Cannot meet wire speed on all ports • Switches only 1.44Bpps out of 1.9Bpps Switching Capacity [Billion pps] 5.6 0.95 Competitor Previous Generation SwitchX-2 © 2013 Mellanox Technologies Power [w/10Gb/s] 1 1.5 1 0.6 2.5 1.44 Competitor New Generation Latency [us] 0.23 SwitchX-3 Competitor Previous Generation Competitor New Generation SwitchX-2 SwitchX-3 0.6 0.25 Competitor Previous Generation Competitor New Generation SwitchX-2 0.4 SwitchX-3 11
