ALISO VIEJO, Calif. -- QLogic Corp. (NasdaqGS:QLGC - News), a leader in networking for storage and high performance computing (HPC), today announced it has completed validation testing of its suite of InfiniBand products with the IBM DB2 data server portfolio, including IBM DB2 9.1 ``Viper,'' giving businesses the ability to use ultra high bandwidth and extremely low latency QLogic(r) InfiniBand(r) networking to interconnect their clustered DB2 databases and improve overall performance. InfiniBand also provides companies with a ``single pipe'' architecture that can be used for server, storage and networking traffic which simplifies data center design and reduces operating costs.
