As data center demands continually increase, network architects seek out the best performance combined with operational efficiency and scalability. Mellanox is focused on meeting these needs by developing L2/L3 Ethernet switches that offer high throughput, extremely low latency and ultra low power consumption.
Mellanox commissioned Tolly to evaluate SwitchX®-based SX1016 and SX1036 Ethernet switches benchmarking throughput, latency, multicast performance and power consumption. The SX1036 delivers wire-speed throughput running 36 ports of 40GbE, as well as when running 48 ports of 10GbE along with 12 ports of 40GbE with cut through latency less than 223ns for L2 40GbE and 269ns for L2 10GbE.
