Switch: The SX1012

The SX1012 switch system provides the highest-performing top-of-rack (ToR) solution in a half-width 1U form factor by delivering up to 1.3Tb/s of non-blocking throughput with 10GbE or 40/56GbE form factor.

The SX1012 is the ideal top-of-rack (ToR) switch for small pods connecting a small number of servers with 40GbE. Each QSFP port can be used with a passive breakout cable to create four discrete SFP+ interfaces to be used as 10GbE ports, for a total of 48-ports on the smallest form factor 10GbE ToR in the industry.

The SX1012 switch has a rich set of networking and application performance features that excel and enable Software Defined Networking in any data center, making this switch the perfect solution for your network.

SwitchX®-2 carries a unique design that enables users with a straight forward platform for implementation of a Software Defined Network, allowing the construction of a high scale network with advanced fine tuning control plane capabilities. The SX1012 support the Virtual Protocol Interconnect® (VPI) technology which enables it to be used for both Ethernet and InfiniBand technology providing the user with flexibility and investment protection. The SX1012 provides a full suite of management options, including support for Mellanox’s Unified Fabric Manager™ (UFM™ ), SNMP V1,2,3, and web user interfaces. In addition, the SX1012 incorporates a familiar industrystandard CLI, which enables administrators to easily configure the switch.

To ensure long term applicability, the SX1012 is provisioned to enhance its current capabilities with additional L2 and L3 features through software upgrades. Click here to learn more.

Switch: The SX1016

The SX1016 is an economical, high-performance 64-port 10GbE switch providing 1.28Tb/s of line rate performance. Based on Mellanox's SwitchX™ silicon and innovative hardware design, the switch packs 64 SFP+ interfaces in an ultra-dense 1U form factor. The SX1016 features industry leading latency of 250ns and power of less than 1.8W per port, providing optimal performance and efficiency for enterprise data center, financial services, Web 2.0, high performance computing and cloud computing applications. To ensure long term applicability, the SX1016 supports the latest data center features like Data Center Bridging and has provisions to enable additional L3 features through software upgrades.

The SX1016 is an elegant top-of-rack design that is architected for performance, serviceability and energy savings. The compact 1U design and large SFP+ port count maximizes server density in industry-standard racks and scale-out computing solutions using standard interfaces. Both forward and reverse airflow schemes are supported to ensure compatibility with different data center thermal designs. Status LEDs for fans and for each port are nicely placed on the front panel of the system for easy status identification. Common accessories such as rack mount kit, AC power and RJ45 console cables are included with a quick-start guide as part of the standard system to ensure fast installation and a positive out-of-the-box experience.

The SX1016 switch is interoperable with components supporting the Ethernet industry standards. The switch becomes an integral part of an optimized end-to-end networking solution when combined with other Mellanox Ethernet products, including the ConnectX® family of 10GbE NICs, acceleration and management software and cables. These solutions deliver industry-leading performance, scalability, reliability and power usage for optimal data center efficiency and application performance across a wide range of industry applications in financial services, Web 2.0, database, cloud and high performance computing environments.
