Offers switching capacities scaling from 2.88Tb/s to 51.8 Tb/s of fully non-blocking bandwidth in single enclosure
Mellanox Technologies, a supplier of connectivity offerings for data centre servers and storage systems, has released IS5000 40Gb/s InfiniBand switch system family and FabricIT management suite.
The IS5000 switch system family enables high-performance computing clusters and data centres to scale using switch building blocks from 36 to 648 ports in a single enclosure with a latency performance of 100ns.
According to Mellanox, the family of IS5000 InfiniBand switch systems provide benefits including, family of un-managed and managed edge switches and director-class modular switches; switching capacities scaling from 2.88Tb/s to 51.8Tb/s of non-blocking bandwidth in a single enclosure with support for all network topologies; and the ability to carry compute and storage traffic on a common converged fabric.
In addition, the IS5000 InfiniBand switch systems provide redundant components and support for automatic component and system failover; monitoring and correction for network congestion and automatic path failover; extended end-to-end system validation; embedded processors to run FabricIT fabric management software; and higher scalability for multicast operations, Mellanox said.
Sanjay Manney, director of product marketing at Mellanox Technologies, said: “Mellanox’s comprehensive end-to-end 40Gb/s connectivity solution of switches, fabric management, and adapters provide the highest return on investment by delivering superior bandwidth and latency performance, density and ease of use that enables data centers to operate systems at any scale while reducing operational costs and infrastructure complexity.
“Mellanox IS5000 InfiniBand switch systems provide the needed capabilities for the highest scalability, reliability and future growth, and can carry converged traffic with the combination of assured bandwidth and granular quality of service.”
