SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 2 -- Chelsio Communications, a leading provider of high performance Ethernet solutions, announced that is releasing to production 3 new PCI Express 3.0 Ethernet adapters, based on Chelsio's Terminator 5 ASIC and optimized for cloud computing, HPC, virtualization, storage, and other data center applications. The new adapters are high performance drop-in replacements for any FibreChannel or InfiniBand interfaces.
Chelsio's high performance storage adapters enable a converged, traffic managed interconnect solution that simultaneously supports a complete suite of networking and storage protocols. The Chelsio adapters are the only ones capable of true 40Gb line rate operation for the iSCSI protocol, while reducing CPU utilization to enable building high performance, yet cost effective storage solutions. In addition, T5 introduces T10-DIX support for iSCSI as well as advanced internal data integrity protection capabilities, making it ideal for mission critical applications.
Chelsio demonstrated the industry's first 40Gb line rate operation of offloaded iSCSI protocol with CRC Digest protection enabled, using a single Chelsio T5-based 40GbE Unified Wire adapter at the Storage Developer Conference in Santa Clara, CA.
"The high performance benefits of Flash storage can be unrealized through the use of inefficient networking" said Saqib Jang, of Margalla Communications. "Chelsio's T5 with iSCSI offload enables consistent high-throughput, low-latency access to Flash storage for virtualized applications."
"With the introduction of T5, Chelsio has now raised the performance bar for SAN technology past anything possible with Fibre Channel, now or in the foreseeable future," said Kianoosh Naghshineh, president and CEO of Chelsio. "Combined with a comprehensive set of offload capabilities, such as RDMA, TOE, FCoE, and T10-DIX, T5 provides a complete solution for today's high performance storage appliances."
