    Just bought 2 of those for €100 ea.

    It seems to be the Lenovo variant, single PSU, short length

    MT0724-HCG, = "Mellanox SX6036 FDR14 InfiniBand Switch (oPSE) (Requires 00AE043)"
    => MSX6036F-1BRS ="SwitchX®-2 based 36-port QSFP FDR 1U Managed InfiniBand switch system with a non-blocking switching capacity of 4Tb/s. 1PS, short depth, C2P airflow, Rail Kit, RoHS6"

    I have not received them yet, but for that price from a vendor with return option/covered by PP - what could go wrong;)

    Hey, looks good. Can the switch be updated normally? I mean is it running Mellanox OS? Can the ports be configured as Ethernet with QSFP cables? (to connect them with those cheap HP FLR qsfp network cards)

    As I don't have mine yet I can't say for sure but I'd think so.
    Ethernet will need the appropriate license I assume

    Is the Ethernet license easily "available" or only purchaseable?

    i have bought it now, lets see when it arrives :) I want to buy the correct cables beforehand from fs.com. Do i buy passive DAC Mellanox branded ones when i want to connect them to some HP Cards, or should i buy only Mellanox branded Receivers and HP Receivers for the network cards and the cables seperated?

    I'd get mellanox ones (for DACs) as you simply can put the mellanox fw on the OEM cards normally.

    well I think it is a huge bargain considering what you get
    36 port FDR (56GBE) switch with very low power consumption (for what you get), 4:1 splitting capability, ultra cheap NICs, enterprise level management, IB/ETH flexibility
    Those should be flashable to latest FW (via HP) too.

    At least thats what I hope to get, have not received them yet. But thats what I got from another MLX sx6036 i have:)

    They don't ship to the UK either but I can ask the seller a question - so that should work? This is the URL it generates if it helps.

    You'd need to buy an ethernet license for it, right?

    As mlx-os is locked so you can't do the funny stuffs to it...
