Mellanox InfiniBand - Speed up server interconnects

Speed up server interconnects

The Mellanox SX6000 family of top-of-rack InfiniBand switches delivers high performance, low latency, port density and complete fabric management solutions. The SX6000 series is designed to enable compute clusters and converged data centers to operate at any scale while reducing operational costs and infrastructure complexity.
Mellanox InfiniBand - Scalable, compatible high-bandwidth performance

Scalable, compatible high-bandwidth performance

Mellanox SX6000 14 data rate (FDR) switches carry converged traffic with assured bandwidth and granular quality of service (QoS). They enable you to build scalable, cost-effective switch fabrics, ranging from small clusters to hundreds of nodes.
  • Fit into industry-standard racks to scale-out leading computing solutions.
  • Ensure maximum effective fabric bandwidth by eliminating congestion hot spots through static and adaptive routing and advanced congestion management.
  • Enable multiple subnets with 12 or 36 ports.
  • Provide high-performance connectivity with support for 56Gb/s port speeds.
Mellanox InfiniBand - Key benefits

Key benefits include:

  • Software defined network (SDN) support
  • Industry-leading switch platform for performance, power and density
  • Energy- and cost-saving design
  • Quick and easy setup and management
  • Fabric congestion removal for maximized performance
  • Fabric management for cluster and converged I/O applications
