Q-layer Picks Voltaire

Voltaire's unified fabric powers Q-layer virtual private data center

BILLERICA, Mass. and HERZELIYA, Israel -- Voltaire Ltd. (NASDAQ: VOLT), a leading provider of grid backbone solutions for the data center, today announced it has been selected by Q-layer, a leading provider of data center and storage virtualization software, as the fabric platform for Q-layer's Virtual Private Data Center solution.

Q-layer is combining its innovative virtualization management software with VMwareT ESX and Voltaire's InfiniBand-based switching platform to deliver unprecedented performance, scalability, and efficiency for service providers

The Q-layer solution enables data center managers to provide their customers with a simple, self-service portal for data center provisioning. Data center managers can also integrate additional virtual appliances into the Q-layer Virtual Private Data Center, to enable simple end-user provisioning of any service provided in the data center.

Intergenia, a leading hosting provider in Germany with over 20,000 servers under management, is one of Q-layer's first customers and has selected a Voltaire unified fabric for its Q-layer environment.

"We have standardized our InfiniBand infrastructure on Voltaire because of its ease-of- management, high-performance and cost effectiveness," said Jochen Berger, CTO of Intergenia. "We use InfiniBand both for storage I/O and network I/O which greatly simplifies our network design."
