Description: Mellanox InfiniBand SX6012 - Switch - managed - 12 x FDR InfiniBand QSFP - rack-mountable
Mfr Part #: MSX6012F-1BFS
The SX6012 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 170ns 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.
The SX6012 with Virtual Protocol Interconnect (VPI) supporting InfiniBand and Ethernet connectivity provide the highest performing and most flexible interconnect solution for PCI Express Gen3 servers. VPI simplifies system development by serving multiple fabrics with one hardware design. VPI simplifies today network by enabling one platform to run both InfiniBand and Ethernet subnets on the same chassis.
- 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 (FOR) InfiniBand
Faster servers based on PCO 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 FOR InfiniBand high-speed, low part 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 ON using the same cables/connectors designed for 40 GhE.
- Sustained network performance
Built with Mellanox's 6th generation SwitchXm"2 Infinband switch device, the SX6012 provides up to twelve 56 Gb/s full bi-directional bandwidth per port. The SX6012 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 SX6012 has no Field Replaceable Units (FRUs), which 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.
- Virtual Protocal Interconnect (VPI)
Virtual Protocal 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 1/0 system design and makes it easier for IT managers to deploy infrastructure that meets the challenges of a dynamic data center.
