Voltaire Passes IBM Certification, Ships New Grid Products

Voltaire Inc. on Thursday said its InfiniBand switch routers and Fibre Channel router had passed interoperability testing for IBM storage products.

Voltaire, a Bedford, Mass.-based, provider of interconnect products for grid computing, said completing the IBM TotalStorage Proven program gives an important reference point for customers moving InfiniBand fabrics to connect servers and storage for clusters and data grids.

Earlier this week, Votaire unveiled several products meant to improve storage networking on clusters and grids. Among the new products were parallel file systems and clustered network-attached storage over InfiniBand.

"Voltaire's new I/O virtualization products address the 'storage gap' that exists in today's HPC clusters and data grids and simplifies the process of virtualizing server, network, and storage resources," Arun Jain, vice president of marketing for Voltaire, said in a statement.

The Voltaire Fibre Channel Router is available immediately. The Voltaire IP Router and IBNetBoot is scheduled for release in August.
