SX6536 648-Port InfiniBand Director Switch

Overview

The SX6536 switch provides the highest performing fabric solution by delivering high bandwidth and low-latency to Enterprise Data Centers and High-Performance Computing environments in a 29U chassis. Networks built with the SX6536 can carry converged traffic with the combination of assured bandwidth and granular quality of service.

Built with Mellanox’s 5th generation SwitchX® InfiniBand switch device, the SX6536 provides up to 56Gb/s (FDR) full bisectional bandwidth per port. With up to 648 ports, this system is among the densest switching systems available. The SX6536 supports a superior scalable platform that scales as more number of nodes per cluster and more number of cores per node increases. This modular chassis switch is an ideal choice for building medium to large size clusters or for use as a core switch for very large clusters.
