Overview:

The QLogic 12000 InfiniBand Switch Series of products adapts to a wide range of customer High Performance Computing (HPC) environments. Based on the QLogic TrueScale ASIC platform, these advanced 40Gbps QDR InfiniBand switches offer the highest port count, the highest port density, and the most flexibility for organizations with HPC needs that are continually evolving.

The QLogic 12000 InfiniBand Switch Series of products runs with the QLogic InfiniBand Fabric Suite (IFS).  IFS simplifies InfiniBand networking with automated installation, configuration, and monitoring of the fabric.

  • Unmatched flexibility and scale with 40Gb (QDR) products that scale from 18 to 864 ports
  • Ability to improve HPC cluster efficiency with industry-leading features, including: adaptive routing, dispersive routing, and Virtual Fabrics
  • Designed to meet the most demanding "time-to-solution" needs of the High Performance Computing (HPC) market
  • 40Gb (QDR) InfiniBand Switch offerings from 18 to 864 ports
  • QLogic TrueScale ASIC architecture, with scalable, predictable performance
  • Comprehensive set of advanced InfiniBand features
  • Optional InfiniBand Fabric Suite (IFS) management solution provides expanded fabric views and a powerful set of management tools

For 10 years, InfiniBand networks have been deployed to address the needs of the most demanding High Performance Computing (HPC) applications. The QLogic 12800 InfiniBand switch is a new class of data center interconnect that links HPC resources using a scalable, 40Gbps, low-latency fabric. Customers can tailor the modular product to meet present and future needs. The QLogic 12800 switch series delivers unmatched high-speed networking features and functions.

Low Latency.
QLogic's 12800 switch provides scalable, predictable low latency, even at 90-percent traffic use. Predictable latency means HPC applications can be scaled easily without diminished cluster performance or costly system tuning efforts.

Flexible Partitioning.
The QLogic 12800 switch advanced design is based on an architecture that provides comprehensive virtual fabric partitioning that enables the InfiniBand fabric to support today's evolving requirements. The TrueScale architecture, together with IFS, allows the fabric to be shared by mission-critical applications while delivering maximum bandwidth utilization.

Modular Design.
InfiniBand port, power, cooling, and management modules are common among the series, giving customers the flexibility to deploy and grow HPC environments in a cost-effective fashion.

Investment Protection.
The QLogic 12800 series switches adhere to the IBTA v1.2 specification, ensuring the ability to interoperate with all other IBTA compliant devices.

Highly Reliable.
This system is designed for high availability with features that include port-to-port and module-to-module failover, non-disruptive firmware upgrades, component-level diagnostics and alarming, and both inband and out-of-band management.

Easy to Manage.
The QLogic 12800 switch uses QLogic's advanced IFS software for faster installation and configuration. IFS includes advanced tools to verify fabric configuration, topology, and performance. Faults are automatically isolated to the component level and reported.

Simple Installation and Configuration.
The installation and configuration wizards contained in the IFS package cuts the fabric installation and configuration time down to days instead of weeks.

Power Optimized.
Delivers maximum performance with minimal power and cooling requirements as part of QLogic's Star Power commitment to developing green solutions for the data center.
