Cisco SFS 7000D, 7012D, and 7024D InfiniBand
The Cisco SFS 7000D, 7012D, and 7024D InfiniBand interconnects are modular systems that you
can use to create large, single-system grid/cluster fabrics, or you can use them as building blocks
for larger fabrics. These interconnects are designed to maximize performance, streamline
operations, and to ensure uptime by providing full hardware and software reliability, availability, and
serviceability (RAS) features.
Although these Cisco interconnects and cables were installed by an HP service representative, it is
assumed that you are familiar with the Cisco InfiniBand Interconnects and have the knowledge
necessary to maintain and troubleshoot the Cisco technology that is used in an HP Cluster Platform
solution. This document contains links to the documentation that you will need to troubleshoot and
maintain the Cisco interconnects.
All of the documentation referenced in this document is currently available on the
websites. If you have any comments about this HP document, please send them to:
