NVIDIA SB7780 InfiniBand Router

SB7780 36-Port EDR 100Gb/s InfiniBand Router

The NVIDIA SB7780 InfiniBand router enables a new level of scalability and isolation that’s critical for the next generation of data centers. The SB7780 InfiniBand router is based on the Switch-IB application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) and offers fully flexible 36 enhanced data rate (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 application’s 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 to segregate between applications that run best on localized resources and between applications that need a full fabric.
