SUNNYVALE, Calif. & YOKNEAM, Israel, Jan. 8 — Mellanox Technologies, Ltd., a leading supplier of end-to-end interconnect solutions for data center servers and storage systems, today announced that its full lines of end-to-end InfiniBand and Ethernet interconnect solutions are now available through SYNNEX Corporation’s General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule. SYNNEX government solution providers can now deliver Mellanox’s solutions to U.S. federal, state and local government agencies, with more efficiency and minimal administrative overhead.
GSA contracts are the most widely used government contract vehicle for procurement by U.S. federal, state and local governments. Due to pre-negotiated pricing, terms, and conditions that streamline the government sales process, GSA contracts simplify the procurement process and enable government agencies to make purchases quickly and easily. Through SYNNEX, the only distributor to offer Mellanox on its GSA Schedule, government agencies have better access to and can significantly reduce costs associated with deploying Mellanox’s high speed, low-latency end-to-end interconnect solutions.
