36-port Non-blocking Managed 56Gb/s InfiniBand/VPI SDN Switch System

Sustained Network Performance

Built with Mellanox's sixth latest SwitchX InfiniBand switch device, the SX6036 provides up to thirty-six 56Gb/s full bi-directional bandwidth per port. These stand-alone switches are an ideal choice for top-of-rack leaf connectivity or for building small to exremely large sized clusters.


FDR InfiniBand technology moves from 8b/10b encoding to a more efficient 64/66 encoding while increasing the per lane signalling rate to 14Gb/s. Mellanox end-to-end systems can also take advantage of the efficiency of 64/66 encoding using Mellanox FDR-10 supporting 20% more bandwidth over QDR using the same cables/connectors designed for 40GbE.

Why Software Defined Network (SDN)?

Data centre networks have become exceedingly complex. IT managers cannot optimise the networks for their applications leading to high CAPEX/OPEX, low ROI and IT headaches. Mellanox InfiniBand SDN Switches ensure separation between control and data planes. InfiniBand enables centralised management and view of network. Enabled are programmability of the network by external applications as well as cost effective, simple and flat interconnect infrastructure.


The SX6036 enables efficient computing with features such as statis routing, adaptive routing, and congestion control. These features ensure the maximum effective fabric bandwidth by eliminating congestion hot spots.

Virtual Protocol Interconnect (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

SX6036 comes with an onboard subnet manager, enabling simple, out-of-the-box fabric bring-up for up to 648 nodes. SX6036 MLNX-OS software delivers complete chassis management to manage the firmware, power supplies, fans, ports and other interfaces.


SX6036 can also be coupled with Mellanox's Unified Fabric Manager (UFM) software for managing scale-out InfiniBand computing environments. UFM enables data centre operators to efficiently provision, monitor and operate the modern data centre fabric. UFM boosts application performance and ensures that the fabric is up and running at all times.
