SX6506 108-port Non-blocking FDR 56Gb/s InfiniBand Switch System

The SX6506 switch system provides the highest-performing fabric solution in a 6U form factor factor by delivering 12.1Tb/s of non-blocking bandwidth with 170ns to 510ns port latency.

Built with Mellanox’s 5th-generation SwitchX® InfiniBand switch device, the SX6506 provides up to 108 56Gb/s full bi-directional bandwidth per port.

The SX6506 can scale as the number of nodes per cluster and the number of cores per node increase.This modular chassis switch provides an excellent price-performance ratio for medium to extremely large size clusters, along with the reliability and manageability expected from a director-class switch.
