Voltaire Delivers Big Platform

RENO, Nev. -- Voltaire Ltd. (NASDAQ: VOLT), a leading provider of grid backbone solutions for the data center, today introduced the Grid Director ISR 2004, a new 20 Gigabits/second, 96-port InfiniBand switching platform for high-performance unified fabrics in the data center. When combined with Voltaire’s recently introduced 10 Gigabit Ethernet line board and 4 Gigabits/second Fibre Channel storage router, customers can introduce unified fabrics to their data centers that take advantage of the highest performance InfiniBand, Ethernet and storage available on the market today.

Unified fabrics provide seamless, high performance networking services between InfiniBand fabrics, Fibre Channel SANs and Ethernet LANs over a single high performance fabric with multiple virtual interfaces replacing actual physical adapters. Voltaire’s Grid Director™ switches enable unified fabrics for the next generation data center by addressing all three types of networking traffic. Customers can now use a single switch and no longer need to invest in three separate network technologies with multiple network adapters to operate a data center fabric. The result is better application performance at lower costs.

“The Grid Director ISR 2004 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet and Fibre Channel routers are a comprehensive solution that truly delivers improved application performance and ease-of-use at lower costs,” said Patrick Guay, senior vice president of marketing, Voltaire. “Unlike competitive offerings that are more suitable for departmental applications, the Voltaire Grid Director ISR 2004 is ideal for large enterprises as well as commercial HPC users that want to deploy unified fabrics.”

In a separate release:

(NASDAQ: VOLT), a leading provider of grid backbone solutions for the data center, today announced that its InfiniBand solutions are available for the new HP Cluster Platform Workgroup System.
