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 SB7790 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 SB7790 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 SB7790 is an elegant top of the rack design, created for performance, serviceability, energy savings and high-availability.
The SB7790 comes with two highly efficient, 80 gold+ and energy star certified power supplies. SB7790 has redundant power supplies (1+1) and fan draws (N+1) both with air shutters for achieving maximal thermal protection.
Building Efficient Clusters
The SB7790 is the industry’s most cost-effective building block for deploying high performance clusters and data centers. Whether looking at price-to-performance or energy-to-performance, the SB7790 offers superior performance, low power and scale reducing capital and operating expenses providing the best return-on-investment.
