Mellanox Onyx- The Next Generation Of Ethernet Networking Operating System !by Trustco PLC Trustco PLC
Mellanox is happily announcing the recent
launch of its general availability of Mellanox onyx. This version is the
successor of the Mellanox Ethernet networking operating system as
the next generation. It combines the rich networking operating system that features
the modern data center with a complete flexibility of a completely open
container based framework.
Mellanox Onyx further combines the best of classic and disaggregated network operating system. As per the data centers scale, the operators seek to reduce the network complexity by eliminating the legacy and proprietary features. Within this new launch, the standards-based scale out layer disaggregated fabrics has emerged as the proven and effective approach to build large data center networks. The many numbers of protocols and features that run the data center keep shrinking. The current focus is shifting to network automation, orchestration and visibility solutions.
The already present disaggregated solutions are Linux based and offer a great number of open source tooling options but many customers still prefer having a classic CLI interface. However, the most classic network operating systems are closed and provide limited access to the switch platform. For customers, the decision is difficult; they have to choose between not having a classic CLI and having a limited system access.
Onyx is technically sound and it supports all the elements that are required to build a robust layer-2 and layer-3 data center network. Following are its inclusions:
• Industry-proven layer-3 stack
• ZTP, Ansible, Puppet
• JSON APIs
• 64-way ECMP
• Robust MLAG
a. End-to-end fabric management: Throughout the entire fabric, the onyx integrates effectively with Mellanox NEO orchestration software and extending management. NEO offers a single pane of glass for the management of the interconnect infrastructure including the spectrum switches and the connectX adapters.
b. Automation: Onyx supports commands to automate end-to-end QoS and buffer configurations. The spectrum Ethernet switch is positioned as the best platform for storage and AI applications.
Others: Other than the advantages or the benefits listed above, the Mellanox’s new generation offers enhanced visibility and container based framework to all its users. This technically advanced IT solution is quite effective for technology businesses and Mellanox UK offers the best version of this all-new launch.
