Description

General Information
Manufacturer: Mellanox Technologies Ltd
Manufacturer Part Number: MSN3420-CB2FO
Manufacturer Website Address: http://www.mellanox.com
Brand Name: Mellanox
Product Line: Spectrum-2
Product Series: SN3000
Product Model: SN3420
Product Name: Spectrum-2 SN3000 SN3420 Ethernet Switch
Marketing Information: The SN3000 series switches are the 3rd generation of NVIDIA® Mellanox® Spectrum® switches, purpose-built for leaf/spine/super-spine datacenter applications. Allowing maximum flexibility, SN3000 series provides port speeds spanning from 1GbE to 400GbE, and a port density that enables full rack connectivity to any server at any speed. In addition,the uplink ports allow a variety of blocking ratios to suit any application requirement.

The SN3000 series is ideal for building wire-speed and cloud-scale layer-2 and layer-3 networks. The SN3000 platforms deliver high performance, consistent low latency along with support for advanced software defined networking features, making it the ideal choice for web scale IT, cloud, hyperconverged storage and data analytics applications.

NETWORK DISAGGREGATION: OPEN ETHERNET

Open Ethernet breaks the paradigm of traditional switch systems, eliminating vendor lock-in. Instead of forcing network operators to use the specific software that is provided by the switch vendor, Open Ethernet offers the flexibility to use a choice of operating systems on top of Ethernet switches, thereby re-gaining control of the network, and optimizing utilization, efficiency and overall return on investment.

Encouraging an ecosystem of open source, standard network solution, Open Ethernet adopts the same principles as standard open solutions for servers and storage, and applies them to the world of networking infrastructure. These solutions can then be easily deployed into the modern data center across network equipment that eases management and ensures full interoperability.

With a range of system form factors, and a rich software ecosystem, SN3000 series allows you to pick and choose the right components for your data center.
