QLogic Touts HPC

RENO, Nev. -- QLogic Corp.
(Nasdaq:QLGC), a leader in networking for storage and high performance
computing (HPC), today unveiled an expanded portfolio of products,
services, qualifications and an ecosystem program for HPC networking.
HPC clusters have rapidly grown to comprise more than 60 percent of
servers deployed in HPC environments and IDC is forecasting a compound
annual growth rate through 2011 of 40 percent for InfiniBand HCAs and
switches. HPC cluster administrators, especially new administrators in
financial and industrial environments, are asking for complete cluster
networking solutions. In response, QLogic is implementing a strategy
to: 1) deliver the highest performance HPC networks, 2) provide
complete server and storage HPC networks and, 3) weave QLogic
technology tighter into the HPC ecosystem. The result is HPC cluster
networks from QLogic deploy easier, run faster and scale higher.

"We see the size of HPC clusters in scientific environments continuing
to grow, while new business and industrial HPC clusters are rapidly
emerging," said Jeff Benck, president and chief operating officer,
QLogic Corp. "QLogic is positioned to provide the HPC networking
hardware, software and services to customers looking to partner with a
complete solution provider."
