Dale D’Alessio has been named CEO of Mellanox Federal Systems.

Mellanox Technologies (NASDAQ: MLNX), a supplier of high-performance interconnect technology for data center servers and storage systems, has announced the creation of Mellanox Federal Systems, as a wholly-owned subsidiary venture. Mellanox Federal Systems will be responsible for driving business development for all federal government agencies and the federal integrator market, says the company.

Dale D’Alessio has been named CEO of the new subsidiary, which will be based in Vienna, Virginia. Mr. D’Alessio was previously co-founder and managing member of YottaStor, a professional service and product company specializing in big data storage solutions for the Intelligence and U.S. Department of Defense markets.

Mellanox Federal Systems will operate as a separate entity to address demand from the U.S. federal government for high performance connectivity solutions and to drive the development of new applications. “Many federal agencies require high-performance interconnect solutions that can process large amounts of data over distributed systems,” comments D’Alessio. “Mellanox’s high bandwidth, low latency interconnect solutions are designed to optimize the performance of defense and intelligence applications.”
