Faster servers based on PCIe 3.0, 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 EDR InfiniBand high-speed smart switches.
Sustained Network Performance
Built with Mellanox’s latest Switch-IB™ InfiniBand switch device, EDR uses efficient 64/66 encoding while increasing the per lane signaling rate to 25Gb/s. The SB7700 provides up to thirty-six 100Gb/s full bi-directional bandwidth per port. These stand-alone switches are an ideal choice for top-of-rack leaf connectivity or for building small to extremely large sized clusters.
The SB7700 enables efficient computing with features such as static routing, adaptive routing, and congestion control. These features ensure the maximum effective fabric bandwidth by eliminating congestion hot spots.
The SB7700 is an elegant top of the rack design, created for performance, serviceability, energy savings and high-availability.
The SB7700 comes with two highly efficient, 80 gold+ and energy star certified power supplies. SB7700 has redundant power supplies (1+1) and fan draws (N+1) both with air shutters for achieving maximal thermal protection.
SB7700, dual-core x86 CPU, comes with an onboard subnet manager, enabling simple, out of-the-box fabric bring-up for up to 2k nodes. SB7700 switch runs the same MLNX-OS® software package as Mellanox FDR products to deliver complete chassis management, to manage the firmware, power supplies, fans and ports.
SB700 switch can also be coupled with Mellanox’s Unified Fabric Manager™ (UFM™) software for managing scale-out InfiniBand computing environments. UFM enables data center operators to efficiently provision, monitor and operate the modern data center fabric. UFM boosts application performance and ensures that the fabric is up and running at all times.
