SN2700 Datasheet


Quoted from Mellanox:
SN2700
Spectrum-based 32-port 100GbE Open Ethernet Platform

Mellanox SN2700 provides the most predictable, highest density 100GbE switching platform for the growing demands of today’s data centers. The SN2700 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 SN2700 switch is an ideal spine and top-of-rack (ToR) solution, allowing maximum flexibility, with port speeds spanning from 10Gb/s to 100Gb/s per port and port density that enables full rack connectivity to any server at any speed. The uplink ports allow a variety of blocking ratios that suit any application requirement.

Powered by the Spectrum ASIC and packed with 32 ports running at 100GbE, the SN2700 carries a whopping throughput of 6.4Tb/s with a landmark 9.52Bpps processing capacity in a compact 1RU form factor.

$3,500.00
Switch is running on Mellanox Onyx v3.8.2004.
You also have the option of buying & installing a license from Data center networking software for the open, modern data center | Cumulus Networks

Difference between your sx6036 and the ones for $300 on eBay?

IIRC the 56Gb license is free now, only the 40Gbe license has an associated cost (or DIY for $0)

People used that free license to get the mellanox secret phrase :D
(Mellanox and partners also removed a valid test license from handbooks/manuals)
