October 16, 2012 12:44 PMSwitchX-2 supports OpenFlow and leverages Mellanox’s Virtual Protocol Interconnect technology for simultaneous InfiniBand and Ethernet connections.
August 03, 2012 04:09 PMCoraid builds on its Ethernet-based SAN products with the recently released ZX-Series.
July 16, 2012 09:45 AMCarrier Ethernet, where you can get it, is less expensive and provides higher bandwidth than comparable legacy WAN services. Here's how the Philadelphia Phillies are saving 30% to 40% and getting more bandwidth.
June 22, 2012 11:16 AMFirst-quarter sales of data center equipment grew year over year, but were down from Q4 2011. Fibre Channel and Ethernet products saw highs, but that won't last, according to Infonetics Research. Learn why, and how virtualization and convergence factor into the picture.
May 24, 2012 09:52 AMEnterprises are leveraging 10 Gbps-capable servers with faster processors to bolster data centers that must support more servers, more virtual machines and cloud computing.
March 05, 2012 11:00 AMI'm here to tell you, supporting wireless and mobile clients is nothing like keeping our Ethernet-tethered users happy. In the wired network world, you either get the speed that you're supposed to, or some counter or log somewhere points you to what's wrong. In the wireless realm, the variables are almost infinite. It's way more complicated, and getting worse. A lot worse.
February 23, 2012 10:00 AMIn the data center, the MPLS/VPN architecture offers an attractive alternative to increasing the size of Layer 2 domains. Some players in the industry are promoting protocols such as Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links (TRILL) to solve Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) scalability problems.
February 14, 2012 12:15 PMWhile we've grown to believe that technologies follow steady geometric price decreases with confidence-inspiring names like Moore's or Kryder's Laws, the truth is market forces aren't as predictable as the word "law" would imply. Those of us who follow the Ethernet market are used to an occasional vendor making a dramatic price move for its own reasons. Most recently, Emulex and Mellanox are making moves to make 10-Gbps Ethernet cheaper.
February 13, 2012 09:00 AMSolid-state array pioneer Nimbus Data's new E-Class array system is a sign that solid-state storage is moving from the high-performance fringe to the mainstream of the enterprise data center. Most first-generation, all-solid-state arrays, including Nimbus Data's own S-class, were best suited to targeted applications where high performance with single points of failure was acceptable. The new asset class, like most midrange disk arrays, has a dual-controller design to satisfy my enterprise reliability requirements.
February 09, 2012 12:00 PMAs few as 25% of network managers have a clear understanding of what traffic courses through their networks and how to best manage it. Gigamon now offers technology that provides visibility for various network management tools that track performance, quality of service, security and other important metrics.

VXLAN is an Experimental IETF draft of protocols to enable the creation of a large overlay, multi-tenant network.
: OpenFlow is poised to reach over-hyped status, yet there are practical, useful reasons for keeping an eye on Openflow. The biggest cloud players are involved and driving the feature creation.
Get a primer on the Openflow protocol and what it can do for networking.
