Neterion, Alacritech Partner

CUPERTINO and SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Neterion(R), Inc., the leader in the 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) adapter market, and Alacritech(R), Inc., the leader of innovative data-delivery technology, announced today that the two companies have entered into a licensing agreement. The agreement enables Neterion to incorporate Alacritech's patented Dynamic TCP Offload Technology(R) for Microsoft Chimney Offload(R) into Neterion 10 GbE adapters.

"As the leader in the 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapter market, Neterion continues to seek partnership opportunities with innovative technology leaders in the 10 GbE ecosystem such as Alacritech in order to provide advanced and complete product solutions to both OEMs and end users," said Dave Zabrowski, president & CEO of Neterion. "Adding TOE capability that takes advantage of Alacritech's patents is a natural complement to our industry leading stateless hardware acceleration, like Large Send and Receive Offloads (LSO / LRO). The primary beneficiaries of this agreement are end users who wish to scale the performance of their servers by deploying a TOE solution using Neterion's adapters -- the 10 GbE adapter most broadly deployed by tier-1 server and storage OEMs for its robustness, performance and ease-of-use."
