This SFP+ direct attach data storage cable has a SFP+ (SFF-8432) connector on both ends. They are constructed using shielded twin-axial copper cable in varying gauges from 24 to 30AWG. It is typically used to directly attach switches/servers in short distance point to point applications and provide 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity between devices with SFP+ interfaces. The cable is also hot-swappable which minimizes network downtimes, making upgrades quick and easy.

Passive cables are much less expensive but require the host to do the work of driving it properly, they have higher reliability and require fewer components (no active Tx /Rx components). Active cables offer the added benefit of being optical-module such as: enhanced signal integrity, transmit pre-emphasis and longer cable lengths.

I bought two of the Mellanox compatible cables: 2m and 7m. Both of these cables work great on my 10 Gb network. They are a great value and definitely worth buying.
These cables work great! Changed my back end to 10GB. Bought 7 of them.
Work in my proliant servers, netgear switches, and a ubiquti switch without a problem. Even work in my Aruba 2930f as well. Highly recommended.
Why spend $200 per cable when you can get these for $25 each!
