Built on standard, existing PCI Express technology, the Adaptive Connect platform supports any server, operating system, hypervisor, application to any I/O device for true heterogeneous support. This means protecting existing investments and future proofing for choices ahead. With Adaptive Connects virtualization capabilities, I/O can be shared and dynamically allocated to any application delivering capacity-on-demand resulting in optimal performance for applications and the highest-level of availability and reliability to ensure business continuity. Adaptive Connect delivers unprecedented capabilities in scalability, with I/O and server resources that can be scaled independently for potential 50-70% savings in capital, power, and space. Furthermore, Adaptive Connect leverages a mature and existing PCI Express ecosystem that delivers tried and tested software.
NextIO is providing seamless connectivity to any industry standard endpoint or device. This any-to-any connectivity, in effect, heralds the obsolescence of fixed I/O infrastructures. The Adaptive Connect platform directly addresses the manageability and flexibility demands of data centers in many different sectors. These include applications such as high-bandwidth HD video, vector processing and financial modeling, Web2.0 data center virtualization, and many others, including emerging cloud compute and storage environments, said David Hill, Mesabi Group.
