Synergy Switches

Does limited network bandwidth create a performance bottleneck in your hybrid IT environment? The Mellanox SH2200 Switch Module for HPE Synergy delivers high-performance, high-speed, low latency 25/50GbE connectivity to each of the Synergy compute nodes, and 40/100GbE to upstream network switches. The module delivers up to 2.8 Tbps switching capacity and 8.4 BPPS throughput for the most demanding data center applications. It offers advanced and comprehensive Layer 2 and Layer 3 feature sets, as well as hardware-based network virtualization support. Network reliability is improved with resilient fabric connectivity to upstream switches using Multi-module LAG (MLAG) technology to reduce single points of failure.
