648-port EDR 100Gb/s InfiniBand Smart Director Switch

Mellanox provides the world's first smart switch, enabling in-network computing through the Co-Design Scalable Hierarchical Aggregation and Reduction Protocol (SHARP) technology. The CS7500 system provides the highest performing fabric solution in a 28U form factor by delivering 130 Tb/s of full bi-directional bandwidth with 400ns port latency.

Scaling-out data centres with extended data rate (EDR) 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 Centres (EDC) will need every last bit of bandwidth delivered with Mellanox's next generation of EDR InfiniBand high-speed smart switches.

Sustained network performance

Built with Mellanox's latest Switch-IB InfiniBand switch devices, the CS7500 provides up to 648 100Gb/s full bi-directional bandwidth per port. The CS7500 modular chassis switch provides an excellent price-performance ratio for medium to extremely large size clusters, along with the reliability and manageability expected from a director-class switch.


CS7500 is the world's first smart network switch, designed to enable in-network computing through the Co-Design Scalable Hierarchical Aggregation and Reduction Protocol (SHARP) technology. The Co-Design architecture enables the usage of all active data centre devices to accelerate the communications frameworks, resulting in order of magnitude applications performance improvements.

World-class design

CS7500 is an elegant modular switch designed for performance, serviceability, energy savings and high-availability. The CS7500 comes with highly efficient, 80 gold+ and energy star certified AC power supplies.


The leaf, spine blades and management modules, as well as the power supplies and fan units, are all hot-swappable to help eliminate down time.

Collective communication acceleration

Collective is a term used to describe communication patterns in which all members of a group of communication endpoints participate. Collectives have implications on overall application performance and scale.

CS7500 introduces the Co-Design SHARP technology, which enables the switch to manage collective communications using embedded hardware. Switch-IB 2 improves the performance of selected collective operations by processing the data as it traverses the network, eliminating the need to send data multiple times between endpoints. This decreases the amount of data traversing the network and frees up CPU resources for computation rather than using them to process communication.

Management

The CS7500, dual-core x86 CPU, comes with an onboard subnet manager, enabling simple, out-of-the-box fabric bring-up for up to 2k nodes. CS7500 switch runs the same MLNX-OS software package as Mellanox FDR products to deliver complete chassis management to manage the firmware, power supplies, fans and ports.
