800-port HDR 200Gb/s InfiniBand Smart Modular Switch

NVIDIA Mellanox provides the world’s smartest switch, enabling in-network computing through the Co-Design Scalable Hierarchical Aggregation and Reduction Protocol (SHARP)™ technology. CS8500 has the highest performing fabric solution in a 29U form factor by delivering 320Tb/s of full bi-directional bandwidth with ultra-low port latency.

Built with Mellanox’s Quantum InfiniBand switch devices, the CS8500 provides up to 800 200Gb/s full bi-directional bandwidth per port. The CS8500 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 modular-class switch.

CS8500 is the world’s smartest network switch designed to enable in-network computing through Mellanox Scalable Hierarchical Aggregation and Reduction Protocol (SHARP™) technology. This architecture enables the usage of all active data center devices to accelerate the communications frameworks, resulting in an order of magnitude improvement in applications performance.
