SX6506 108-Port InfiniBand Director Switch
The SX6506 switch system provides the highest-performing fabric solution in a 6U form factor factor by delivering 12.1Tb/s of non-blocking bandwidth with 170ns to 510ns port latency.
Built with Mellanox’s 5th-generation SwitchX® InfiniBand switch device, the SX6506 provides up to 108 56Gb/s full bi-directional bandwidth per port.
The SX6506 can scale as the number of nodes per cluster and the number of cores per node increase. This modular chassis switch provides an excellent price-performance ratio for medium to extremely large size clusters, along with the reliability and manageability expected from a director-class switch.
