Mellanox SX1016 - Switch - managed - 64 x 10 Gigabit SFP+ - rack-mountable

The SX1016 is an economical, high-performance 64-port 10GbE switch providing 1.28Tb/s of lineate performance. Based on Mellanox's SwitchX silicon and innovative hardware design, the switch packs 64 SFP+ interfaces in an ultra-dense 1U form factor. The SX1016 features industry leading latency of 250 ns and power of less than 1.8 W per port, providing optimal performance and efficiency for enterprise data center, financial services, Web 2.0, HPC and cloud computing applications. To ensure long term applicability, the SX1016 supports the data center features like Data Center Bridging and IPv6 and has provisions to enable additional L2 and L3 features through software upgrades.

The SX1016 is an elegant top-of-rack design that is architected for performance, serviceability, energy savings and high-availability. The compact 1U design and large SFP+ port count maximizes server density in industry-standard racks and scale-out computing solutions using standard interfaces. Both standard and reverse airflow schemes are supported to ensure compatibility with different data center thermal designs. Redundant power supplies and fans provide high availability for both Enterprise Data Center (EDC) and High Performance Computing (HPC) environments. Status LEDs for fans and power supply units are placed on both sides of the system for easy status identification. Common accessories such as rack mount kit, AC power and RJ45 console cables are included with a quick-start guide as part of the standard system to ensure fast installation and a positive out-of-the-box experience.

The SX1016 switch is interoperable with components supporting the Ethernet industry standards. The switch becomes an integral part of an optimized end-to-end networking solution when combined with other Mellanox Ethernet products, including the ConnectX family of 10GbE NICs, acceleration and management software
