Color Coded Direct Attach Cables from Mellanox to Reduce Errors
SUNNYVALE, CA: Mellanox Technologies, a provider of interconnect solutions for data center servers and storage systems, announces the general availability of Direct Attach Cables (DACs) with colored jackets and colored pull tabs, supporting interconnect speeds of 10, 40 and 56Gb/s for both Ethernet and InfiniBand data center networks.
The new color coding will reduce error occurring in connecting server, switch and routing ports, shorten cluster installation time, and simplify interconnect debugging and network management.
“The new colored cables can ease data center management and provide the ability to easily distinguish between different types of data traffic, applications or equipment, making data center deployments and maintenance more simple,” says Gilad Shainer, Vice President of Marketing at Mellanox Technologies.
To provide high data center efficiency, every LinkX cable of Mellanox is put through full system test in a stressed environment. It saves time for network engineers by removing the tedious debugging time needed for new installations with untested products. LinkX is compatible with all types of applications, whether it is or InfiniBand, cloud or Web 2.0, server to top-of-rack, server to storage or switch to switch.
