The SN2410 provides the most predictable, highest performance 100GbE ToR switching platform for the growing demands of today's data centers. The SN2410 switch is an ONIE (Open Network Install Environment) based platform for allowing a multitude of operating systems to be mounted on it and utilizing the advantages of Open Networking and the capabilities of the Mellanox Spectrum™ ASIC. The SN2410 has three modes of operation. It can be provided preinstalled with MLNX-OS ® , a home-grown operating system utilizing common networking user experiences and industry standard CLI. It can come preinstalled with Cumulus ® Linux, a revolutionary operating system taking the Linux user experience from servers to switches and providing a rich routing functionality for large scale applications. Finally, it can be provided with a bare ONIE image ready to be installed with the afore-mentioned or other ONIE-based operating systems. The SN2410 switch is an ideal top-of-rack (ToR) solution, allowing maximum flexibility, with port speeds spanning from 10Gb/s to 100 Gb/s per port. Its optimized port configuration enables high-speed rack connectivity to any server at 10GbE or 25GbE speeds. The 100GbE uplink ports allow a variety of blocking ratios that suit any application require-ment. Powered by the Spectrum ASIC and packed with 8 ports running at 100GbE (can be split to 16 ports running 50GbE) and 48 ports running at 25GbE, the SN2410 carries a whopping switching capacity of 2Tb/s with a landmark 2.98Bpps processing capacity in a compact 1RU form factor. Keeping with the Mellanox tradition of setting performance record switch systems, the SN2410 introduces the world's lowest latency for a 100GbE switching and routing element, and does so while having the lowest power consumption in the market. The low latency is maintained while switching or routing between ports at different speeds, leveraging a smart cut-through architec-ture that performs on-the-fly optimized buffering, eliminating any dependency between ports. With the SN2410, the use of 25, 40, 50 and 100GbE in large scale is enabled without changing power infrastructure facilities. The SN2410 is part of Mellanox's complete end-to-end solution which provides 10GbE through 100GbE interconnectivity within the data center. Other devices in this solution include ConnectX ® -4based network interface cards, and LinkXTM copper or fiber cabling. This end-to-end solution is topped with Mellanox NEO™, a management application that relieves some of the major obstacles when deploying a network. NEO enables a fully certified and interoperable design, speeds up time to service and eventually speeds up RoI. The SN2410 introduces superior hardware capabili-ties including dynamic flexible shared buffers and predictable wire speed performance with no packet loss for any packet size. While Spectrum provides the thrust and accelera-tion that powers the SN2410, the system gets yet another angle of capabilities while running with a powerful x86-based processor, which allows this system to not only be the highest performing switch fabric element, but also gives the ability to incorporate a Linux running server into the same device. This opens up multiple application aspects of utilizing the high CPU processing power and the best switching fabric, to create a powerful machine with unique appliance capabilities that can improve numerous network implementation paradigms.
