The SX6018 switch systems provides the highest performing
fabric solution in a 1RU form factor by delivering 2Tb/s of
non-blocking bandwidth with 200ns port-to-port latency. Built with
Mellanox’s 6th generation SwitchX®-2 InfiniBand switch device,
these switches provides up to eighteen 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
extremely large sized clusters.
The SX6018 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.
The SX6000 switch family enables efficient computing with features
such as static routing, adaptive routing, and advanced congestion
management. These features ensure the maximum effective fabric
bandwidth by eliminating congestion hot spots.
