The Incredible Ethernet Journey
Mellanox Spectrum® SN4000 Ethernet Switch Series
The SN4000 Ethernet switches combine industry-leading 400GbE density with rich features for the modern data center. Powered by Spectrum®-3 ASIC, the SN4000 series carries a whopping bidirectional switching capacity of up to 25.6Tb/s. The SN4000 platform complements the SN3000 platforms as high-density 400/100GbE spine switches. Alternatively, the SN4000 can also function as a high-density leaf switch for dense interconnected high performance clusters or classic end of the row data center designs.
Mellanox Spectrum® SN3000 Ethernet Switch Series
The SN3000 Ethernet switches are ideal for leaf and spine data center network solutions, allowing maximum flexibility, with port speeds spanning from 1GbE to 400GbE per port and port density that enables full rack connectivity to any server at any speed. Powered by the 50G PAM-4 based Spectrum®-2 ASIC, the SN3000 series carries a whopping bidirectional switching capacity of up to 12.8Tb/s with a landmark 8.33Bpps packet processing rate.
Mellanox Spectrum® SN2000 Ethernet Switch Series
Powered by Mellanox Spectrum switch silicon, the SN2000 Open Ethernet switches combine enterprise-class performance with entry-level economics. With industry-leading performance, scale and features, SN2000 Ethernet switches are ideal to build small, medium and large Layer-2/Layer-3 and virtualized data center networks. SN2000 switches feature a fully-shared packet buffer architecture that provides a robust high-bandwidth data path for Ethernet Storage Fabric and other hardware-accelerated RoCE based applications such as NVMe-OF and Deep Learning. Additionally, SN2000 switches support comprehensive network virtualization capabilities with its FlexFlow packet processing pipeline.

Why Leaf/Spine Networks are Taking Off
Unless you’ve been stranded on a deserted island, you’ve probably noticed that leaf/spine networks have started taking over data centers in the last few years. It’s no secret that people prefer scale-out over scale-up solutions, and for networking, the old scale-up approach was to use massive monolithic modular switches, a.k.a. Big Frickin’ Switches (BFS), whenever high port counts were needed. These BFS switches have gone the way of mainframes and Pokemon-go; some people still play with them, but all the cool kids have moved on to leaf/spine networks. The market data clearly shows this trend: years ago the majority of switches were modular, but now...ブログを読む
Why your business needs advanced telemetry technology to identify network and storage issues.
Let’s talk about network streaming telemetry and why you need it. If you ever had problems trying to recreate issues, or had a tough time figuring out why you were seeing packet loss, or if you are a network admin who has ever been blamed for an application outage or a server or storage performance issue, you need good network telemetry. Because the network enables applications to be accessed, share data, and connect to storage, good network streaming telemetry is also good application telemetry. Some of you may be asking, what exactly is telemetry?ブログを読む
