FDR InfiniBand technology moves from 8b/10b encoding to a more efficient 64/66 encoding. Mellanox end-to-end systems can also take advantage of the efficiency of 64/66 encoding using Mellanox FDR-10 supporting 20% more bandwidth over QDR using the same cables/connectors designed for 40 GbE. The SX6018 is an ideal choice for top-of-rack leaf connectivity or for building small to extremely large sized clusters. The SX6018 is designed to carry converged LAN and SAN traffic with the combination of assured bandwidth and granular Quality of Service (QoS).
The SX6018 enables efficient computing with features such as static routing, adaptive routing, and congestion control. These features ensure the maximum effective fabric bandwidth by eliminating congestion hot spots. Virtual Protocal Interconnect (VPI) Virtual Protocol Interconnect (VPI) flexibility enables any standard networking, clustering, storage, and management protocol to seamlessly operate over any converged network leveraging a consolidated software stack. VPI simplifies I/O system design and makes it easier for IT managers to deploy infrastructure that meets the challenges of a dynamic data center.

Product Features
  • Scaling-out data centers with Fourteen Data Rate (FDR) InfiniBand
    Faster servers based on PCIe 3.0, combined with high-performance storage and applications that use increasingly complex computations, are causing data bandwidth requirements to spiral upward. As servers are deployed with next generation processors, High-Performance Computing (HPC) environments and Enterprise Data Centers (EDC) will need every last bit of bandwidth delivered with Mellanox's next generation of FDR InfiniBand high-speed smart switches.
