Topspin Communications announced it has expanded its relationship with HP to further integrate Topspin InfiniBand technology into industry-standard HP servers. The agreement will extend Topspin's supplier relationship to HP ProLiant servers running Linux and Windows, joining the existing offering for HP 9000 and Integrity servers running HP-UX currently available to customers worldwide.
Focused on the needs of the high performance commercial computing and database clustering markets, HP ProLiant servers will support HP branded InfiniBand options based on Topspin's industry-leading product set. Enterprise customers will be able to deploy optimally sized clusters, and protect initial investments with the flexibility to upgrade over time with the peace of mind provided by HP world-class consulting and support.
InfiniBand is a server interconnect and I/O technology designed to address the needs of computing platforms for increased performance, higher scalability, and improved manageability. As an open industry standard, InfiniBand is capable of expanding mainstream business computing by unleashing these capabilities.
"Cluster aware high performance applications and databases are moving out of the scientific computing community and into the mainstream corporate data center," said Brian Garrett, analyst with Enterprise Strategy Group. "HP servers and Topspin technology can not only help data center managers increase performance today, but also help establish the Grid infrastructure to make utility computing a reality."
"Our joint customers continue to experience tangible economic and performance benefits as a result of our strong partnerships," said Krish Ramakrishnan, chief executive officer of Topspin. "By expanding our relationship with HP, we are ensuring that the broadest set of solutions available to customers can profit from the speed and reliability that Topspin InfiniBand technology adds to HP clusters."
"HP is excited by the opportunities we see to connect our industry-leading ProLiant servers with high performance fabric infrastructures in the enterprise data center," said Paul Perez, vice president of Storage, Networking & Infrastructure for Industry Standard Servers at HP. "Through our development efforts with Topspin, we continue to expand and enhance the capabilities of our commercial scale-out solutions."
