The SX-6000 series delivers more than 4 Tb/s of non-blocking bandwidth with extremely low port-to-port latency in a single 1 U device. The SX6000 series enables efficient computing for small to very large scale clusters with features such as static and adaptive routing, congestion control, and hardware-based forward error correction. These features, enabled by MLNX-OS, ensure maximum effective fabric bandwidth by eliminating network hot spots and guaranteeing the highest levels of reliability. The features built into the SX silicon, including hardware-based InfiniBand routers and gateways to Ethernet and Fiber Channel; provide opportunities for further scalability and convergence. UFM takes a logical and virtualized view of fabric resources to deliver unmatched control over the fabric in optimizing application performance and uptime. Whether used for parallel computation or as a converged fabric, the SX6000 series provides the industry's highest traffic-carrying capacity, making it easy to build clusters that can scale-out to thousands and tens-of-thousands of nodes. It offers superior price-to-performance and energy-to-performance, reduces capital and operating expenses, and provides the best return-on-investment.
