May 15, 2012 09:00 AMHP continues ProLiant Gen8 server refresh with entry-level and blade offerings from AMD and Intel and a vendor ecosystem that includes Emulex and Seagate.
May 09, 2012 09:00 AMBright Cluster Manager 6.0 from Bright Computing is aiming to make cloud bursting a viable alternative for companies looking to temporarily scale high-demand applications.
April 20, 2012 11:00 AMBrocade is broadening its line of 16-Gbps Fibre Channel switches with the introduction of the entry-level 24-port 6505 Switch, and has identified IBM as its first OEM partner to deliver a 16-Gbps Brocade switch as a component of the IBM Flex System x240. Finally, the network infrastructure vendor's stand-up 16-Gbps HBAs are now available for integration with IBM System x in rack and tower form factors.
January 25, 2012 10:00 AMIntel, which played a key role in the creation of the InfiniBand high-speed networking standard a decade ago, has come full circle and bought the IB assets of Qlogic, one of the two remaining companies still actively pushing the technology. While $125 million is chump change for a company that netted $3.4 billion in profits last quarter, Intel says the acquisition will enhance its networking portfolio and provide scalable high-performance computing (HPC) fabric technology as well as support the company's vision of innovating on fabric architectures to achieve ExaFLOP/s performance by 2018. At a hundred times faster than today's fastest supercomputers, it's an aggressive move, seeking to accelerate performance to a quintillion computer operations per second.
February 08, 2011 07:00 AMFCoE may not be the slam-dunk portrayed by some analysts and vendors, but I'm confident an "everything over Ethernet" approach is the right one for the next generation of enterprise data centers. It's hard to argue with commodity pricing, solid 10Gbit performance, backward-compatible connectivity and network-enabled flexibility. Fibre Channel will eventually succumb to the Ethernet monster, and the data center will be better for it.
June 25, 2010 01:00 PMHP and QLogic have pushed the ball forward in next generation networking and virtualization with an HP Flexfabric 10Gb/24 blade switch that allows the switch port to be configured as a Fiber Channel, FCoE, iSCSI and Ethernet port simultaneously. Flexfabric drives home HP's wire-once strategy. It's an industry first, and it's likely that other networking vendors will follow suit.
December 14, 2009 05:32 PMIn my last post I talked a great deal about native support for NUMA in vSphere on enabled Opteron and Nehalem processor platforms. NUMA is a strong technology in and of itself, but it really starts to shine when teamed with other supporting technologies. In this post, I'm going to cover the details of integrating next generation networking and interrupt technologies to improve storage and networking performance. I'll focus on MSI-X, but future posts will cover VMDq, RSS and Multiple Queue's in more detail, as all these technologies work closely to distribute load to multi-core CPUs and dramatically improve system performance.
October 20, 2009 08:48 AMWith exclusive design wins at NetApp & IBM, and offering the only single chip CNA you can get from EMC today, QLogic continues to pommel its competitors.
August 11, 2009 02:52 PMQlogic puts FCoE on the fast track with two more design wins for advanced network plus architecture; Netapp takes FCoE storage system connectivity mainstream
August 11, 2009 12:45 PMNetAPP, along with QLogic and Brocade, have announced the first FCoE end-to-end product set. Using converged network adapters from QLogic or Brocade, Brocade FCoE switches, and NetAPP appliances, organizations can run FCoE from server to storage. The Brocade partnership is in addition to an existing reseller agreement with Cisco to resell the Nexus 5010 and 5020 switches. Essentially, NetAPP qualified Brocades switches and CNA's to work with their NAS products.
