SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- ServerEngines Corporation, a pioneer in I/O virtualization and converged Ethernet solutions for enterprise computing, announced today the availability of two 10 Gigabit Ethernet Converged Network Adapter (CNA) cards for IBM BladeCenter and System x customers.

ServerEngines will make available to IBM customers the industrys first CNA that delivers standards-based 10 Gigabit (10Gb) Ethernet and full protocol offload SCSI over IP (iSCSI) Storage Area Network (SAN) capabilities on a single card. The combination of ServerEngines CNA cards and IBM servers allows users to benefit from the high bandwidth and low latency of 10Gb Ethernet networks.

“IBM BladeCenter's open architecture allows companies to use it as a building block to create new products like ServerEngines’ CNA cards. This reduces system design costs for third parties and lowers costs for customers while creating a broad ecosystem of products for the BladeCenter platform,” said Alex Yost, vice president, IBM BladeCenter. “By collaborating with ServerEngines, IBM is providing our customers with new choices in the rapidly growing 10Gb solutions space.”
