Grid Director™ 4036

Overview

Scaling-Out Data Centers with 40Gb/s InfiniBand

The Grid Director 4036 is a high performance, low latency and fully non-blocking InfiniBand switch for high performance clusters. Delivering 2.88Tb/s of non-blocking bandwidth with 100 nanoseconds of latency (port-to-port), I/O bottlenecks are removed making applications operate at maximum efficiency. The efficient Grid Director 4036's smart design makes it easy to build clusters that can scale-out to thousands of nodes.
