The solution, which is the only system that is capable of meeting the full 100 meter distance IEEE specification, incorporates innovative technology from cPacket Networks and Solarflare Communications to provide real-time, wire-speed network visibility and management, and maximum I/O performance to support critical applications such as cluster computing, high-performance computing and real-time business applications.
Also making its debut at SC08 will be SMC's Tiger Access Managed Services Platform, a family of integrated hardware and software solutions that enable the VARs and IT administrators to remotely monitor and manage their networks through a standard Web browser. The Managed Service Platform product family is based upon storage and processor technology from Intel, and ships with Microsoft Windows Server Solutions to ensure easy and seamless integration into the existing network environment.
SMC will also announce the vast improvements to its three-tier Elite Partner Program. In addition to increased discounts, increased reseller margins and new training programs, SMC has launched a new partner program Website that will make it easier and more profitable for VARs and resellers to promote and sell SMC's broad family of networking solutions for the SMB and enterprise markets.
"We're particularly excited about our participation in this year's SC Conference as we're launching a variety of products and technologies that empower companies to implement the latest cutting-edge applications, and provide them with a greater level of control and manageability over the network than ever before at budget-friendly price-points," explained Keith Alexis, vice president of sales for SMC Networks.
