Ethernet Switch Systems


Storage and Hyperconverged Switch

The Mellanox’s half-width SN2010 Top-of-Rack (TOR) switch is the best switch for storage and hyperconverged networks. It is designed for 10/25GbE storage/hyperconverged server clusters with 100GbE uplink connectivity to higher-speed networks. Carrying the signature performance supremacy of Mellanox Spectrum, this 10/25GbE TOR switch provides the ideal combination of performance, rack efficiency, and flexibility to today’s software-defined storage and hyperconverged infrastructure, and presents an easy migration path to next-gen networking.

Mellanox Spectrum® 10-400 Gigabit Ethernet Switches

The Mellanox Spectrum® Ethernet switch family delivers the highest performance and port density with a complete chassis and fabric management solution enabling converged data centers to operate at any scale while reducing operational costs and infrastructure complexity. This family includes a broad portfolio of Top-of-Rack (TOR) switches that range from 12 to 128 ports, with Ethernet data rates of 1GbE, 10GbE, 25GbE, 40GbE, 50GbE, 100GbE, 200GbE and 400GbE per port. These switches allow the building of cost-effective and scalable switch fabrics, from a few nodes to tens-of-thousands of nodes. Spectrum switches are ideal to build high performance, cost-effective and efficient Cloud Data Center Networks, Ethernet Storage Fabric, and Deep Learning Interconnects.
