The QLogic 12200 is a 36-port, 40Gbps InfiniBand switch that cost-effectively supports a cluster of up to 36 servers, or provides an edge switch option for a larger fabric. This fixed-configuration InfiniBand switch is a member of the 12000 series that delivers an unmatched set of high-speed networking features and functions.
QLogic's 12200 switch provides scalable and predictable low latency, even when operating at 90-percent of bandwidth. Predictable latency means HPC applications can be scaled easily without diminished cluster performance or costly system tuning efforts.
The QLogic 12200 advanced design is based on an architecture that provides a comprehensive set of virtual fabric partitioning features that enable the InfiniBand fabric to support the evolving requirements of an organization. The TrueScale architecture, together with IFS, allows mission-critical applications to share the fabric, while maximizing bandwidth.
The 12000 Series switch products adhere to the IBTA version 1.2 specification, which ensures interoperability with all IBTA compliant devices.
The highly available 12200 switch design integrates state-of-the-art fault detection and recovery capabilities.
Easy to manage
The 12200 switch takes advantage of QLogic's advanced IFS software for fast installation and configuration. IFS has tools that automate and accelerate cluster installation, verification, and administration for both hosts and switches. IFS integrates easily with existing network management tools, and has comprehensive reports that supply a wide range of details about the environment.
