World-Class InfiniBand Performance

NVIDIA's family of InfiniBand switches deliver a complete chassis and fabric management that enables managers to build highly cost-effective and scalable switch fabrics ranging from small clusters up to 10’s-of-thousands of nodes, reducing operational costs and infrastructure complexity. Features like static routing, adaptive routing, and congestion management ensure the maximum effective fabric performance under all types of traffic conditions.

Edge Switches

NVIDIA's family of edge switch systems provides the highest-performing fabric solutions in a 1RU form factor, by delivering up to 16Tb/s aggregate data of non-blocking bandwidth with extremely low port-to-port latency. Each port supports up to 200Gb/s (QSFP connector) full bidirectional bandwidth. These edge switches are an ideal choice for top-of-rack leaf connectivity or for building small to medium sized clusters. NVIDIA's edge switches are offered as managed or externally managed to meet a variety of deployment scenarios.

Director Switches

NVIDIA’s InfiniBand family of director switches provide the highest density switching solution, scaling from 43Tb/s up to 320Tb/s of bandwidth in a single enclosure, with low-latency and the highest per port speeds up to 200Gb/s. Its smart design provides unprecedented levels of performance and simplifies the building of clusters that can scale out to thousands-of-nodes. Moreover, the leaf, spine blades, management modules, power supplies and fan units are all hot-swappable, eliminating downtime.

NVIDIA Mellanox SB7780 InfiniBand Router

SB7780 InfiniBand Router

The NVIDIA Mellanox SB7780 InfiniBand router enables a new level of scalability and isolation that is critical for the next generation of data-centers. The SB7780 InfiniBand router is based on the Switch-IB switch ASIC and offers fully flexible 36 EDR 100Gb/s ports, which can be split among six different subnets. The SB7780 InfiniBand Router can connect between different types of topologies. Therefore, it enables each subnet topology to best fit and maximize its applications performance. For example, the storage subnets may use a Fat-Tree topology while the compute subnets may use 3D-torus, DragonFly+, Fat-Tree or other topologies that best fit the local application. The SB7780 can also help split the cluster in order to segregate between applications that run best on localized resources and between applications that need a full fabric.
