Description: Mellanox InfiniBand SX6005 - Switch - unmanaged - 12 x FDR InfiniBand QSFP - rack-mountable
Mfr Part #: MSX6005F-1BFS
The SX6005 switch system provides the highest-performing fabric solutions in a 1RU half-width form factor by delivering up to 1.3 Tb/s of non-blocking bandwidth to storage and embedded systems, with 170 ns port-to-port latency. Built with Mellanox's 6th generation SwitchX-2 InfiniBand switch device, these switches provide up to 56 Gb/s full bidirectional bandwidth per port. This stand-alone switch is an ideal choice for smaller departmental or back-end clustering uses with high-performance needs, such as storage, data base and GPGPU clusters.
- Virtual Protocol Interconnect (VPI) flexibility offers InfiniBand and Ethernet connectivity
- Industry-leading, switch platform in performance, power, and density
- Highest ROI - designed for energy and cost savings
- Ultra low latency
- Granular QoS for Cluster, LAN and SAN traffic
- Quick and easy setup and management
- Maximizes performance by removing fabric congestions
- Fabric management for cluster and converged I/O applications
- Scaling out data centers with Fourteen Data Rate Infiniband
Faster servers based on PC le 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, embedded system environments and fast storage will need every last bit of bandwidth delivered with Mellanox's next generation of FDB InfiniRand high-speed, low art density smart switches.
FDR InfiniBand technology moves from 8b/10b encoding to a more efficient 64/66 encoding while increasing the per lane signaling rate to 14 Gb/s. McIlanox end-to-end systems can also take advantage of the efficiency of 64/66 encoding using Mellanox FDR-10 link speed supporting 20% more bandwidth over ODR using the same cables/connectors designed for 40 GbE.
- Sustained network performance
Built with Mellanox's 6th generation SwitchXX-2 InfiniBand switch device, the SX6005 provides up to twelve 56 Gb/s full bi-directional bandwidth per port. The SX6005 is an ideal choice for smaller departmental or back-end clustering uses with high-performance needs, such as storage, data base and GPGPU clusters.
- Smart switches for smart clusters
The SX6005 has no Field Replaceable Unit; this simplifies the usage and maintenance of the switch. All connectors and cables including the power connector are on the same side of the switch making it unnecessary to require access to the non-connector side of the switch. A unique rail mounting kit allows two SX6005 switches to be mounted side-by-side in the same 1U space while allowing the switches to be serviced independently using less rack space for redundant switch configurations.
- Building efficient clusters & grids
The SX6005 is the industry's most cost-effective building block for embedded systems and storage with the need for a low port density snitch. Whether looking at price-to-performance energy-to-performance, the SX6005 offers superior performance, power and space reducing capital and operating expenses, providing the best return-on-investment.
