Mellanox SX6036 56Gb InfiniBand Switch Review Discussion

Recommended Posts

The Mellanox SX6036 is the second Mellanox managed switch to join the rack in the StorgeReview Enterprise Lab. The SX6036 is designed for top-of-rack leaf connectivity, building clusters, and carrying converged LAN and SAN traffic. The integrated InfiniBand Subnet Manager can support an InfiniBand fabric of up to 648 nodes. While we've found 1GbE, 10GbE and 40GbE to be compelling interconnects in the lab, there are times when you just need a little more power to ensure that storage is the throughput and latency bottleneck, not the network fabric. To this end we are leveraging the InfiniBand switch and related gear on high end storage arrays and situations where there's not just a need for speed, speed is a requirement for doing business.
