The Cisco SFS 7008P InfiniBand Server Switch provides a new class of data center infrastructure that interconnects discreet server resources together into a high performance 10Gbps, low-latency fabric. It brings many of the mainframe "backplane" technologies to commodity servers, including Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) for transmitting large amount of data with very little overhead, as well as very low latency (<4 usec user-space latency). These technologies enable commodity servers to be combined into effective high-performance clusters and grids, creating the kind of collective performance required for enabling the trend towards commoditization.

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

In addition to high performance computing, InfiniBand also offers the performance, security and control required for utility computing. The SFS 7008P interconnects servers via a high-performance, unified fabric, and when combined with SFS 3000 Multifabric Server Switches, enables shared pools of I/O and storage resources that can be mapped together by VFrame Server Fabric Virtualization Software to deliver virtual "compute services".
The Cisco SFS 7008P InfiniBand Server Switch is a director-class switch designed for mission-critical environments. It has full bi-sectional bandwidth (1.92 Tbps) across 96 20-Gbps full duplex (read and write), ports and embedded fabric management in a 6-rack-unit (6-RU) chassis. The Cisco SFS 7008P is a perfect building block for server fabrics from tens to thousands of nodes. With fully redundant, hot-swappable components, the Cisco SFS 7008P is an ideal component for building scalable and highly available clusters for high-performance computing, scientific, and enterprise applications.
The Cisco SFS 7008P offers the following customer benefits:

• 96 ports of nonblocking 10-Gbps (4X) InfiniBand server connectivity with full bi-sectional bandwidth (1.92 Tbps).

• Cisco Rapid Service Architecture allows service and replacement of all active electronics without removing cables

• Director-class high availability and stateful failover eliminates service disruptions

• Intelligent switch with embedded fabric management, capable of running clusters of thousands of nodes

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

The SFS 7008P integrates with other Cisco SFS 7000 Series InfiniBand Server Switches and Cisco SFS 3000 Series Multifabric Server Switches for a wide range of IPC, storage, and WAN/LAN network connectivity options.
