Nimbus-led alliance hopes to big up 10Gb Ethernet

Switch and adapt

HP ProLiant Gen8: Integrated lifecycle automation

A number of big name IP networking vendors teamed up earlier this week to create a new Nimbus-led partnership to raise awareness of 10Gbit/sec Ethernet.

The 10 Gigabit Ethernet Storage Alliance is made up of switch manufacturers Arastra Inc, Force10 Networks Inc, Fulcrum Microsystems Inc, Fujitsu Microelectronics America Inc and adapter makers Mellanox Technologies, Neterion and NetXen Inc.

Together the new group will focus on developing what Nimbus CEO Thomas Isakovich described as "a multi-vendor ecosystem," in the hope of pushing deployment of 10Gbit/sec Ethernet onto the masses.

“As long expected, 10GbE is now a viable platform for high performance storage networking.

"As server, network, and storage virtualisation transform the way we build and operate datacenter infrastructure, 10GbE will become the unifying and strategic network,” said Michael Peterson, president of Strategic Research Corporation.

This way for the press release. ®
