QM8700 Series - Mellanox Quantum™ HDR 200Gb/s InfiniBand Smart Switches

40-port Non-blocking HDR 200Gb/s InfiniBand Smart Switch
Mellanox provides the world’s smartest switches, enabling in-network computing through the Co-Design Scalable Hierarchical Aggregation and Reduction Protocol (SHARP)™ technology. The QM8700 series has the highest fabric performance available in the market with up to 16Tb/s of non-blocking bandwidth with sub 130ns port-to-port latency.

Faster servers combined with high-performance storage and applications that use increasingly complex computations, are causing data bandwidth requirements to spiral upward. As servers are deployed with next generation processors, High-Performance Computing (HPC) environments and Enterprise Data Centers (EDC) will need every last bit of bandwidth delivered with Mellanox’s next generation of HDR InfiniBand high-speed smart switches.

Built with Mellanox’s Quantum InfiniBand switch device, the QM8700 series provides up to forty 200Gb/s full bi-directional bandwidth per port. QM8700 is the world’s smartest network switch, designed to enable in-network computing through the Co-Design Scalable Hierarchical Aggregation and Reduction Protocol (SHARP) technology. The Co-Design architecture enables the usage of all active data center devices to accelerate the communications frameworks using embedded hardware, resulting in order of magnitude applications performance improvements.
