Intel® True Scale Fabric Director Switch 12800 Product Family

18-864 port modular switches

Intel® True Scale Fabric 12800 Switch Family

Overview

The Intel® True Scale Fabric director switch 12800 family of InfiniBand* switches are a price/performance leader in a data center interconnect that links HPC resources to a highly scalable, 40 Gbps, low-latency fabric. These director switches scale from 18 to 648 ports with the Ultra-High Performance (UHP) leafs. The systems can also scale to 864 ports with the Ultra-High Density (UHD) leafs, which are 2:1 oversubscribed. The 864 port director is the largest single chassis InfiniBand* switch available.

To build even larger fabrics, multiple Intel True Scale Fabric director switch 12800 systems can be interconnected with the Intel® True Scale Fabric edge switch 12200 and 12300 families to form a fabric that scales to thousands of servers. The Intel True Scale Fabric director switch 12800 family was designed to be modular such that customers can tailor their system configuration to meet present and future needs. The Intel True Scale Fabric director switch 12800 series delivers unmatched high-speed networking features and functions.
