SwitchX-2 - The World’s Leading Software Defined
Networking VPI Switch
Software Defined Networking switches are leading the way for the next generation cloud, Web 2.0 and scalable data centers. High throughput, low latency and low power consumption are key in realizing the SDN promise of reducing capital expense and operational expense to better enable data center scalability.
SwitchX-2, the next generation of Mellanox’s switch silicon, is optimized for Software Defined Networking (SDN). SwitchX-2 includes advanced capabilities of remote configurable routing tables, lossless and congestion free networks, efficient control planes, and SDN-optimized software interfaces. SwitchX-2 enables IT managers to program and centralize their server and storage interconnect management and dramatically reduce their operations expenses by completely virtualizing their data center network.
Utilizing industry-first, RDMA-based 56Gb/s Ethernet and InfiniBand, SwitchX-2 is the world’s fastest, most scalable, SDN switch with unmatched 4Tb/s switching capacity (50 percent higher than closest competition), the industry’s lowest power consumption, industry-low 170ns latency, hardware-based L2/L3 congestion management for highest efficiency and hardware-based data error correction for highest reliability. SwitchX-2’s advanced feature set enables the creation of larger flat SDN networks with lower cost and higher performance.
