Mellanox InfiniBand Blade Switch
Accelerate throughput with InfiniBand blade switches
Enable high bandwidth and low latency across InfiniBand-connected server nodes in your M1000e blade chassis high-performance computing (HPC) cluster.
- Single-wide switches occupy only one slot, leaving availability for fabric redundancy.
- InfiniBand™ Trade Association (IBTA) management support allows easy management through any IBTA-compliant subnet manager.
- Non-blocking throughput is enabled through 16 dedicated internal and 16 external ports.
Add high-bandwidth, low-latency InfiniBand switches to your Dell M1000e blade chassis.
Get the most data throughput available in a Dell M1000e blade chassis with a Mellanox InfiniBand blade switch. Designed for low-latency and high-bandwidth applications in high performance computing (HPC) and high-performance data center environments, InfiniBand switches offer 16 internal and 16 external ports to help eliminate the bottlenecks common to other switch designs.
