"The renewal of our contract through 2010 is significant in terms of future revenue potential for Voltaire."

IBM now offers a pass through module that interoperates with Voltaire InfiniBand DDR and a host channel adapter with Voltaire GridStack software as an interconnect option for IBM BladeCenter.
