With industry leading density, power efficiency and low latency, the SX1024 is the first non-blocking top of rack SDN switch providing unmatched performance advantage while lowering capital and operational expenditures.
The SX1024, is the optimal top of rack switch with 48 port of 10GbE and 12 uplink ports of 40/56GbE for non blocking throughput between rack and aggregation layer. Based on Mellanox’s SwitchX-2 silicon and advanced hardware design this switch packs 48 SFP+ and 12 QSFP interfaces in an ultra dense 1U form factor. The SX1024 features industry leading latency of 250ns and power efficiency while providing optimal performance for enterprise data center, financial services, Web 2.0, high performance computing and cloud computing applications.
SwitchX-2 carries a unique design that enables users with a straight forward platform for implementation of a Software Defined Network, allowing the construction of a high scale network with advanced fine tuning control plane capabilities. The SX1024 support the Virtual Protocol Interconnect (VPI) technology which enables it to be used for both Ethernet and InfiniBand technology providing the user with flexibility and investment protection. The SX1024 provides a full suite of management options, including support for Mellanox’s Unified Fabric Manager (UFM), SNMP V1,2,3, and web user interfaces. In addition, the SX1024 incorporates a familiar industrystandard CLI, which enables administrators to easily configure the switch.
To ensure long term applicability, the SX1024 supports the latest data center features like Data Center Bridging and IPv6 and has provisions to enable additional L2 and L3 features through software upgrades.
