    Have you seen this ?

    56GbE Switch License is Now Free | Mellanox Interconnect Community

    Not sure if this is exactly the license you are looking for ... i never understood the licensing exactly but would be good to know as i`ll look for those models next year, too..

    With these models i`d be careful regarding the firmware / os ... there are a lot of HP / EMC branded switches out there that might have proprietary firmware / os :(

    Hm, guess this is a bit different licence, the one i posted seems to be an speed-upgrade to FDR only, when i got this right.

    Wow, pricing for your partnumbers is a bit 'over the top' - at least what i found with a short search :eek:

    Disregard - I was referring to 6015 (unmanaged 18port ) not 6012 (managed 12 port)

    Why not get a 4036E ?

    I think I paid around $700 for the one I have.

    Isn't that one only 10G Ethernet? I'd want 40 if I'm buying something like this. Else, I'd get a LB6M

    @zeynel You can find a Mellanox BX4010 Gateway System here, got countered with 590.
    That will do bridging to up to 6 10GBe ports (or FC if you have it) but needs an upstream IB switch and is "limited" to QDR.

    The breakout-cables are sort of a mystery in terms of compatibility.
    In special when it comes to the point if some of the voltaire-switches/gateways like the 4036E would accept them, and what exact license is required on the others.

    I would also like to use those cables on bigger VPI - Switches rather than adding separate 10G Switches.
    But seeing the price for the License-Upgrade, going with two more 10G switches is obviously the more economic way, even if these add a significant power-draw :(

    @zeynel: I have some of these that i can't use atm, so if you get a switch you want to try them i could send them to you for testing.
    40G QSFP+ to 4 SFP+ Passive Cable - 2 Meter | eBay

    Edit: if someone else in EU owns an 6036 without this license or an 4036 and wants to try if these cable`s work i`d also make this offer to send them for a trial ;)

    i have a few cables like this i think it all depends on brand as well, what brand are yours? IIR it wont split out IPoIB they are Ether only based cables... they can be 1 or 10gb how you configure them... also some switches require you to leave the port above it free to use these as they use dual channels to make the ether work...
