Mellanox Technologies, Ltd., a supplier known for offering end-to-end connectivity solutions for smart data center servers and storage systems, released all new 8-port IS5022 and 18-port IS5023 unmanaged switches, belonging to the company’s low-port count and power-efficient in the IS5000 switch system family.
According to the company, these trendy new switches can be combined with their broad portfolio of 40 Gbps switch systems to enable cluster build-outs of any size at optimal price/performance points.
These new switches offer 640 Gbps (8 ports) to 51.8 Tbps (648 ports) of fully non-blocking bandwidth with support for all network topologies ranging from Fat-Tree, Mesh, 3D-Torus along with 25-45 percent better latency than other comparable switches.
Its effective new design allows mounting of two units side by side in a 1U standard 19-inch rack, further reducing space for redundant configurations along with the capacity to compute and storage traffic on a common converged fabric, enabling the creation of power and cost-efficient green clusters and data centers.
Also, this new series enables efficient computing for clusters of all sizes, from the very small to the extremely large, while offering near-linear scaling in performance and comes with a reliable fans and reversible air-flow options.
“While high-performance fabrics focus on very large scale problems, there are many applications in small clusters that require high performance interconnects, too,” said Sanjay Manney, director of product marketing at Mellanox (News - Alert) Technologies, in a press release.
Manney said that the introduction of the IS5022 and IS5023 is enabling them to offer high bandwidth and low-latency connectivity at an optimal price and power for a large variety of embedded and small cluster applications, such as storage, database and GPGPU clusters.
Company is currently offering the new IS5022 and IS5023 InfiniBand switch systems at $3,153 and $6,314 respectively.
