12-Port Non-blocking Managed 56Gb/s InfiniBand SDN Switch System

The SX6012 switch system provides the highest performing fabric solution in a 1U half-width form factor by delivering up to 1.3Tb/s of non-blocking bandwidth with 200ns port-to-port latency.

Scaling-Out Data Centres 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, embedded system environments and fast storage will need every last bit of bandwidth delivered with Mellanox's next generation of FDR InfiniBand high-speed, low port density smart switches.

FDR

FDR InfiniBand technology moves from 8b/10b encoding to a more efficient 64/66 encoding while increasing the per lane signaling rate to 14Gb/s. Mellanox 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 QDR using the same cables/connectors designed for 40 GbE.

Sustained Network Performance

Built with Mellanox's 6th generation SwitchX-2 InfiniBand switch device, SX6012 provides up to twelve 56Gb/s full bi-directional bandwidth per port. SX6012 is an ideal choice for smaller departmental or back-end clustering uses with high-performance needs, such as storage, database and GPGPU clusters.

Smart Switches for Smart Clusters

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. A unique rail mounting kit allows two SX6012 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.

Virtual Protocol Interconenct (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 centre.

Management

SX6012 comes with an onboard subnet manager, enabling simple, out-of-the-box fabric bring-up for up to 648 nodes. The SX6012 MLNX-OS software delivers complete chassis management to manage the firmware, power supplies, fans, ports and other interfaces.
