Product information

Especially when using full flash storage, it is extremely important that the network infrastructure offers the high bandwidth and low latency required to actually use the I/O rates provided by the storage.
Mellanox, on the market for more than 15 years now, is the only manufacturer offering the complete 10/40/56 Gbit Ethernet and Infiniband infrastructure, with host adapters, switches, cables, SFPs and chipsets. In a pure Mellanox environment, not only the perfect interaction of all components is guaranteed, but the network can then be fully operated with a bandwidth of 56 Gbit per connection.
40 and 10 Gbit on the other hand, serve the compatibility with existing standards and allow the integration into existing networks. Mellanox products are also characterized by a very low power consumption.
The SX1012 switch at half rack width can also be used as a space-saving 1U 10 Gbit switch. Because each port can be divided on a breakout cable to 4 SFP+ modules, with full 10 Gbit bandwidth. Of course, also mixed operation is possible, so that multiple 10 Gbit clients can simultaneously access 40 Gbit interfaces of a storage system.
