BaltInfoCom deploys Mellanox 40GbE switch solution

Mellanox Technologies has announced that Russian HPC company BaltInfoCom has selected its SX1036 36-port 40GbE switch system to provide customers with 10GbE connectivity to servers and 40/56GbE uplinks for the next level of aggregation switching.

BaltInfoCom sought an Ethernet switch to deliver high performance and port density, while reducing operational costs and infrastructure complexity. The Mellanox SX1036, based on Mellanox’s SwitchX-2 switch IC, will deliver up to 4.03Tb/s of throughput and 220ns latency – a three times bandwidth improvement and four times latency improvement over BaltInfoCom’s previous offerings.
