Marketing Information:

Mellanox provides the world’s smartest switch, enabling in-network computing through the Co-Design SHARP™ technology. QM8700 has the highest fabric performance available in the market with up to 16Tb/s of non-blocking bandwidth with sub-90ns port-to-port latency.

Scaling-Out Data Centers with HDR 200G InfiniBand

Faster servers, combined with high-performance storage and applications that use increasingly complex computations, are causing data bandwidth require-ments 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 HDR InfiniBand high-speed smart switches.

World’s Smartest Switch

Built with Mellanox’s Quantum InfiniBand switch device, the QM8700 provides up to forty 200Gb/s ports, with full bi-directional bandwidth per port. These stand-alone switches are an ideal choice for top-of-rack leaf connectivity or for building small to extremely large sized clusters.

QM8700 is the world’s smartest network switch, designed to enable in-network computing through the Co-Design Scalable Hierarchical Aggregation and Reduction Protocol (SHARP) technology. The Co-Design architecture enables the usage of all active data center devices to accelerate the communications frameworks using embedded hardware, resulting in order of magni-tude applications performance improvements.

QM8700 enables efficient computing with features such as static routing, adaptive routing, congestion control and enhanced VL mapping to enable modern topologies (SlimFly, Dragonfly+, 6DT). These ensure the maximum effective fabric bandwidth by eliminating congestion hot spots.
