Deliver Scalable, Available InfiniBand Networks
As a critical component of an InfiniBand fabric, the InfiniBand subnet manager actively manages all the operational characteristics of the fabric, such as routing, addressing, initialization, and more. As InfiniBand networks are deployed in larger and more mission-critical environments, reliability, scalability, and performance become increasingly important.
The Cisco SFS High-Performance InfiniBand Subnet Manager delivers the performance, scalability, and availability required to build the largest InfiniBand networks.
Available as a standalone software package separate from the embedded processors on InfiniBand switches, the SFS High-Performance InfiniBand Subnet Manager:
- Delivers rapid cluster startup and real-time diagnostic capabilities required for large InfiniBand fabrics
- Supports the most demanding workloads of large InfiniBand environments
- Supports high availability by providing real-time synchronization of fabric databases between active and standby nodes to facilitate large cluster operations where downtime is never an option
