    What is the latest MLNX-OS that will run on SX6036?

    Well crud. okay, so, now, a silly follow up question… fo you know if it might be possible to push an SX 6036 farther in either firmware or features? I have all these switches and would love to squeak out every last drop of capability. also? If you know anything about Mellanox NEO, I would...

    What is the latest MLNX-OS that will run on SX6036?

    I have several SX6036 Switches. All are fully licensed, and running 3.6.812 What is the latest version of MLNX-OS available for these? I cannot locate anything beyond 3.6.8012 I am open to, and capable of rolling a new FW bundle if that is a "thing" that can be done. As long as it works, I...

    Mellanox NEO - finally got latest, but actually need older version...

    I struggled to get the latest version of NEO, but now I see that I need version 1.2! The newer version sure is pretty, but it doesn't play nice with my SX6032's! Does anyone know where to get the older versions of NEO?!

    Need way to break out my 40/56Gb switch ports....

    Yea, that what I'm doing now. To build this "core" I have 2 Mellanox SX6036 56Gbe switches with the Infiniband gateway active. I intend to rack these 1U apart and 1U underneath. Initially I'll put in two 10GBe Dell 8000 Series Powerconnect switches in the empty 1U spaces. OR I'll use...

    Need way to break out my 40/56Gb switch ports....

    Yep. All i want is a 2-3 U box to do this with my small-ish network/lab.

    Need way to break out my 40/56Gb switch ports....

    Got it. Yes, I saw these devices too, however I just cannot stomach burning one 40Gbe port for a single 10Gbe port, or just to make 4 10Gbe SFP ports (although that is more acceptable). I am trying to find a device that takes one or more 40Gb QSFP+ links, connectes them to a backplane, and...

    Need way to break out my 40/56Gb switch ports....

    Thanks for looking all that up, but I know about these items, and the idea of using a single stand-alone media converter is a huge waste. This is why i'm asking about a "rack mountable platform that has the ability to take one or more 40GB QSFP+ connections and allows me to push in various...

    Need way to break out my 40/56Gb switch ports....

    Yes, of course. I have several of these cables and i'm using them to connect southbound switching etc., but that isn't the issue. The issue is that I need to produce RJ45 ports and perhaps other media types. I want to do this without adding a whole switch on the end of a breakout just so I can...

    Need way to break out my 40/56Gb switch ports....

    I have several Mellanox SX6036 switches. I am hoping to use a pair of them as a network core. There will be PLENTY of open ports eve after I fully populate all the 40/56gb connections using QSFP+ cables. However, I need to break a few of these out to various other media types. I could link to...

    DC on Display: What's the most visually stunning storage array chassis you have seen?

    Nope. I am specifically asking about the storage chassis, disk shelf or array chassis that you would mount in a rack. Not the racks.

    DC on Display: What's the most visually stunning storage array chassis you have seen?

    I am designing a custom infrastructure and it will be on display in a lobby. I would like to build the storage targets in the most visually spectacular chassis possible. I do NOT want non-functional lights or anything that is obviously fake, however some small lighting effect is acceptable. I...
