Cisco introduces 20Gbps switch

Cisco has launched a gateway switch that boosts the performance of applications that run on InfiniBand-clustered servers and network-attached storage and Fibre Channel based storage devices.

servers and network-attached storage and Fibre Channel based storage devices.

Cisco Server Fabric Switch (SFS) 3504 can aggregate server traffic on 20Gbps InfiniBand links and distribute it to storage devices on Ethernet and Fibre Channel networks.

As opposed to installing a Fibre Channel host channel adapter in each server in the cluster so it can connect directly to the Fibre Channel storage-area network, each server connects via InfiniBand to the SFS 3504.

The SFS 3504 switches this aggregated traffic to the SAN via 4Gbps Fibre Channel ports and is an upgrade from 2Gbps Fibre Channel ports on the SFS 3012.
