Mellanox Technologies has been a long-time developer and contributor in the FreeBSD community, integrating Mellanox leading-edge RDMA and other advanced offload technologies into the generally available FreeBSD operating system. Mellanox currently has three SRC committers on-board. We are happy and proud to continue sponsoring, contributing and maintaining the InfiniBand, RDMA, LinuxKPI, and USB subsystems, and to facilitate infrastructural changes in the ever-growing FreeBSD project.
