What do we do?
Any well-planned network should begin with a logical network design and a physical network design. Mellanox services will prepare all design documents to ensure that all your servers, Ethernet switches, InfiniBand switches, and storage are accounted for. We will also review the physical network design: floor plans, rack elevations, infrastructure details and detailed cable Information including physical cable routes, lengths, and spares.
Mellanox Services will provide cable recommendations; generally fiber cables are employed for inter-rack runs due to their ability to traverse greater distances and smaller diameter. Intra-rack cables will most often be passive copper cables as they are less costly and ideally suited to shorter runs.
For large multi-tiered fabrics with high-density Core/Director switches it will be necessary and required to house the chassis in its own rack; we recommend sourcing extra wide racks.
Cable management comes in different sizes; Mellanox will work with you to review manufacturers’ specifications. We recommend sourcing large enough systems to account for the great number of cables and diameters.
When employing Mellanox Services to deploy cabling, our team will work to create comprehensive p2p documentation consisting of a list of all cables to be implemented, a source and destination and bundling matrix describing every cable end point, and labeling information – as described in details below:
While planning the cable implementation, various intricacies of the logical and physical design will dictate the sourcing of many different cables of different lengths and types; the p2p will detail this information.
It is crucial that all cluster elements have unique names to ensure all are connected per the design. Hence, the cable labeling should reflect the designations representing origin components and destination components, including the port the cable should connect to, cable type and length details
Mellanox offers several differently sized deployment packages; each package offers the same level of service.
