Chelsio Announces Support

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Chelsio Communications, Inc., the leading provider of 10-Gigabit Ethernet and iSCSI acceleration adapters and ASIC solutions, today announced support for the OpenFabrics Enterprise Distribution (OFED) 1.2 software stack on its RDMA-enabled R310E 10GbE iWARP adapters has been accepted into the upstream Linux kernel.

With this milestone, Chelsio has delivered the first 10Gb Ethernet iWARP solution natively integrated in Linux. OFED is the multi-vendor qualified and open sourced InfiniBand/iWarp software stack.

Chelsios line of iWarp adapters, such as the recently announced R310E, enable server clusters to run InfiniBand applications while utilizing the full performance, low cost, routability, ease of management, and low latency benefits of 10Gb Ethernet.

“Chelsio’s low latency, cut-through architecture gives users the freedom to choose the transport technology to use with the OpenFabrics Interface,” said Dr. Dhabaleswar Panda of The Ohio State University. “Chelsio is helping move the industry towards transport-independent fabrics.”
