SX6518 switch system provides the highest-performing fabric solution in a 16 U form factor by delivering 36.3 Tb/s of non-blocking bandwidth with 170 ns to 510 ns port latency. Faster servers based on PCIe 3.0 combined with high-performance storage and applications that use increasingly complex computations, are causing data bandwidth requirements to spiral upward. As servers are deployed with next generation processors, High-Performance Computing (HPC) environments and Enterprise Data Centers (EDC) will need every last bit of bandwidth delivered with Mellanox's next generation of FDR InfniBand high-speed smart switches.

Built with Mellanox's 5th generation SwitchX InfniBand switch device, the SX6518 provides up to 324 56 Gb/s full bi-directional bandwidth per port. The SX6518 can scale as the number of nodes per cluster and the number of cores per node increases. 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.

The SX6518 enables efficient computing with features such as static routing, adaptive routing and congestion control. These features ensure t maximum effective fabric bandwidth by eliminating congestion hot spots. The SX6518 delivers director-class availability required for mission-critical application environs mends. The leaf, spine blades and management modules, as well as the power supplies and fan units, are all hot-swappable to help eliminate down time.
