Are those "Mellanox HP 649281-B21 ConnectX-3 VPI MCX354A-FCBT" you have the same as the MCX354A-FCBT cards you can flash to the QSFP ones? And are they dual-port?

Also, what's the difference between that Mellanox 36 x QSFP switch and, say, a Brocade ICX7750-26Q ?

That's a massive price difference. Like, over 200x the cost.

The HP cards are Mellanox MCX354A-FCBT which are dual ports. You can also flash them to whatever the Mellanox cards can be flashed to if need be.

The Mellanox switch is InfiniBand and not an Ethernet switch.

Added two servers and lowered prices across the board to reflect current changes in the market since the original post.

If you're looking at these: 4 x Mellanox (HP) 10GB 671798-001 Single Port Mellanox Connectx-2 PCI-E 10GBe Ethernet Network Interface - $20 then I can swap the HP to LP for you on one if you want.
