Comment As we reported today, Mellanox announced today it has broken through the 200Gb/sec barrier. We’re told it will ship an end-to-end 200Gb/s interconnect solution in the first half of 2017.
Mellanox will refresh its Quantum smart switches, ConnectX 6 adapters, along with the cables that connect the two together. What does this mean for you folks expected to test and deploy this tech?
Looking at the switch first, this is more than a speed bump upgrade. Their new high-end Quantum switch will sport 80 ports of 100Gb/s EDR or 40 ports of 200Gb/s of HDR. The entire switch has 16Tb/s capacity, which puts it at the top of the stack, competition-wise.
