Data Sheet

The Cisco® SFS 7012P and 7024P InfiniBand server switches set the standard for high-density, 10 Gbps (4X), low-latency InfiniBand switching for building high-performance clusters.


High-performance computing (HPC) applications that solve complex, computationally intensive problems are widely deployed within academic and research communities and enterprises as they deliver significant business benefits. A key enabler for the broad adoption of HPC applications is the practice of clustering multiple industry-standard servers using a high-speed network to provide supercomputer performance, at a fraction of the cost of traditional supercomputers.

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

The Cisco SFS 7012P and 7024P InfiniBand server switches (Figure 1) are a new class of data center infrastructure that delivers scalable, high-performance, low-latency server switching to build and manage high-performance clusters and grids that deliver the full potential of HPC applications. The Cisco SFS 7012P and 7024P are optimized for very large, high-density HPC environments to deliver non-blocking, high-bandwidth, low-latency switching in a cost-effective form factor.

The Cisco SFS 7012P SFS 7024P provides non-blocking switching for up to 144 and 288 10-Gbps InfiniBand ports respectively. The Cisco SFS 7012P and 7024P, in common with the Cisco SFS 7008P InfiniBand Server Switch, also support fully redundant, hot-swappable components that areideal for building large-scale, highly available clusters for high-performance computing applications.

BENEFITS

The Cisco SFS 7012P and 7024P offer the following benefits:

· Comprehensive performance and fabric diagnostics tools in a fully managed switch

· High-performance, industry standards-based InfiniBand interconnect technology

· Integration with other Cisco SFS 7000 Series InfiniBand server switches

· Easy configuration, monitoring, and maintenance in-band and out-of-band

FEATURES

The following features are included with the Cisco SFS 7012P and 7024P:

· Up to 288 ports of non-blocking, 10-Gbps (4X) InfiniBand connectivity with full bisectional bandwidth

· Hot-swappable components, including online insertion and removal (OIR), redundant fans, and power supplies

· InfiniBand 1.0a and 1.1 compliant

· Optional standalone, high-performance Cisco Subnet Manager

FABRIC DENSITY AND SCALABILITY

The Cisco SFS 7012P and 7024P are among the highest-density InfiniBand switches in the industry today. With twelve 10-Gbps (4X) InfiniBand ports per slot, the Cisco SFS 7012 and Cisco SFS 7024P can support up to 144 10-Gbps (4X), or 288 10-Gbps (4X) of non-blocking InfiniBand ports respectively within a single chassis for server and inter-switch connectivity. When combined with other Cisco SFS 7000 Series InfiniBand switches, the Cisco SFS 7012P and 7024P provide the foundation for building very large HPC clusters consisting of thousands of nodes to support the most demanding HPC applications.

HIGH RELIABILITY AND AVAILABLITY

The Cisco SFS 7012P and 7024P deliver the performance, scalability, and director-class uptime required for the most demanding HPC environments.Minimizing downtime requires rapid hardware serviceability and software upgrades. The Cisco SFS 7012P and 7024P are optimized for reliability and availability and support hot-swappable components to help eliminate downtime and maximize the availability of the cluster or compute environment. This includes hot-pluggable, redundant fan trays and power supplies that can be field-upgraded without requiring the switch topower down.

SIMPLIFIED MANAGEMENT

Configuration, remote management, monitoring, diagnostics, and updates are supported through Telnet, Secure Shell Protocol Version 2 (SSHv2), and serial command-line interface (CLI) as well as a powerful, fully featured, browser-based GUI that enables the Cisco SFS 7012P and 7024P to bedeployed in a ready-to-use fashion in the network within minutes. The Cisco SFS 7012P and 7024P can be managed using the Cisco SFS management suite or with existing network management systems using standard protocols such as Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), with supported SNMPv3 security.

FABRIC INTELLIGENCE

The Cisco SFS-7012P and 7024P offer sophisticated system and network management capability that simplifies monitoring, diagnostics, and maintenance. The comprehensive management capability quickly identifies and isolates trouble areas, or “hot spots.” Each field-replaceable unit (FRU) supports a full suite of system-level diagnostic health checks that assess the health of all components to detect potential problems, such as rising temperature or internal error rates, and report these anomalies in real time to proactively notify the system administrator. The Cisco SFS 7012P and 7024P also support a full complement of real-time performance monitoring, including graphing of bandwidth utilization and error rates, to give system administrators an unprecedented view of fabric performance.

VALUE

The Cisco SFS 7012P and 7024P are IBTA 1.0a and 1.1 standards-compliant, and are interoperable with other IBTA standards-compliant InfiniBand products. The high-performance Cisco InfiniBand Subnet Manager and Cisco SFS 7012P and 7024P deliver the performance required to build the largest InfiniBand switch networks.

COMPLETE SERVER SWITCHING SOLUTION

The Cisco SFS 7012P and 7024P are a part of the Cisco SFS 7000 Series of InfiniBand server switches which, combined with the Cisco Catalyst® 6000 Series switches and Cisco MDS 9000 Series switches, deliver a comprehensive, industry-leading data center switching solution. The Cisco SFSsolution also includes integrated Ethernet and Fiber Channel gateway modules, and 10-Gbps InfiniBand host channel adapters (HCAs) with acomplete suite of upper-layer protocols: IP over InfiniBand, Messaging Passing Interface (MPI), Sockets Direct Protocol (SDP), SCSCI RDMA Protocol (SRP), and user Data Access Provider Layer (uDAPL). The Cisco SFS 7012P and 7024P share common switch software with all the other Cisco SFS 7000 and SFS 3000 series server switches, offering a clear growth path while protecting existing investments.
