“Our first quarter results are a significant achievement given the pause in the HPC market ahead of its refresh cycle and the lower than expected revenues from one of our largest customers,” said Eyal Waldman, president and CEO of Mellanox Technologies. “We continue to see growth in data, the number of devices generating and consuming data, and the number of applications and users utilizing data. This growth drives the need for faster and better interconnects, fulfilled today by our 56 Gb/s and, in the future, by our 100 Gb/s solutions for which we already see demand. We believe that we will grow year-over-year in 2014 with our growth accelerating in the second half of the year.”
