The Voltaire Grid Switch ISR 9024 is a high performance, low latency, fully non-blocking switch for high performance computing (HPC) clusters and enterprise grids. It is a cost-effective alternative to proprietary interconnect technologies. The standards-based Grid Switch ISR 9024 delivers high bandwidth and low latency at affordable pricing. Using the Grid Switch ISR 9024, you can build high performance clusters and grids that scale from several to tens of nodes.
Leverage the performance of InfiniBand
InfiniBand is an industry standard high performance interconnect for high performance computing clusters and enterprise grids. InfiniBand offers high speed link bandwidth and low latency capabilities that deliver impressive price/performance. It is the first high speed networking technology to enable low cost server clusters and grids to accomplish complex computing tasks at the same or greater speeds than expensive high-end servers.
High performance computing clusters and grids
The Grid Switch ISR 9024 is a fully non-blocking switch for configurations of up to 24 ports and also serves as a cost-effective building block for cluster topologies of tens of nodes for HPC and enterprise applications.
The Grid Switch ISR 9024 is built for mission-critical application deployment, featuring redundant, hot-swappable power supplies, as well as a hot-swappable fan unit. Benefiting from robust InfiniBand architecture, the Grid Switch ISR 9024 offers a true Plug-and-Play environment, allowing servers to be added without taking down the fabric.
GridVision provides comprehensive and powerful management capabilities, delivering real-time proactive management by providing: Aggregated fabric and resource views, access to a suite of fabric and switch diagnostics, the ability to manage fail-over on all levels, and provisioning of InfiniBand fabrics and the attached server, networking and storage resources.
