PHILADELPHIA -- Obsidian Strategics, Inc., the developer of Longbow, a series of InfiniBand® products featuring range-extension, routing and encryption, today announced that it is collaborating with QLogic Corp., a leading supplier of high performance network infrastructure solutions, to cross-certify InfiniBand products and deliver seamless networking solutions. Obsidian joined the QLogic® NETtrack™ partner program to provide solutions and deliver products and support to joint InfiniBand customers. Additionally, Obsidian is pleased to announce sponsorship of the QLogic NETtrack Developer Center facility by contributing X Series and C Series Longbows to allow users to directly evaluate equipment interoperability and system-level performance. This collaboration leverages the Longbow's latency injection capability to simulate arbitrary optical network distances between powerful QLogic-enabled clusters.

“As a leader in native InfiniBand range-extension, routing and encryption, it was a natural progression for Obsidian to join the QLogic NETtrack program,” says Dr. David Southwell, president of Obsidian Strategics. “We are pleased to collaborate with QLogic, and to align with them as a strategic partner.”
