Woven Unveils 10GigE Fabric Switch

LAS VEGAS -- Woven Systems, the leading innovator of Ethernet fabric solutions, today announced that it will be demonstrating its flagship product - the EFX 1000, 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) Fabric Switch - at Interop 2007 Las Vegas: IT Conference and Exposition (booth 2449). The EFX 1000 switch, based on Woven’s patented vSCALE™ technology, delivers highly scalable 10 GE performance for server clustering and storage applications at 1/5 the price point of alternative switch offerings.

During the Interop show, Woven Systems will demonstrate how its vSCALE technology with Active Congestion Management dynamically detects congestion and re-balances traffic across less congested paths, running on a multi-node server cluster. Each line card in the EFX 1000 includes vSCALE packet processing ASICs that route traffic across a multi-stage Ethernet fabric and measure traffic latency on all paths through the fabric. If a path is overloaded, traffic is automatically rerouted to an alternate path without dropping or re-ordering packets, delivering low latency performance that rivals Fibre Channel and InfiniBand™ switches.

“The EFX 1000 is ideally suited for latency sensitive applications like storage, multimedia, and high performance computing,” said Dan Maltbie, Woven co-founder and Chief Product Officer. “Using Woven’s low latency 10 GE switching, network operators can be assured of high performance and availability across the fabric while avoiding the issues associated with using high latency switching from other vendors.”
