SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Chelsio Communications, Inc., a leading provider of high performance (1Gb/10Gb/25Gb/40Gb/50Gb/100Gb) Ethernet Unified Wire adapters and ASICs for storage networking, virtualized enterprise datacenters, cloud service installations, and cluster computing environments, today announced the availability of T6 25 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) converged network adapter solutions which boost the utilization of the state-of-the-art multi-core processors and achieve unparalleled Ethernet storage and server connectivity. The T6225-SO dual-port 25GbE and T62100-SO dual-port 100GbE converged network adapters (CNAs) promote next-generation datacenters enabling high-bandwidth Ethernet fabrics optimized for efficiency while reducing costs, power, and complexity.
Today's datacenters require 25 gigabits per second or greater server networking solutions to support the increasing networking demands of virtualized environments, to achieve the highest database transactions per second, and to enable true storage and server I/O consolidation. Chelsio's T6225-SO and T62100-SO CNAs provide IT managers with the networking solutions required to build the most efficient and long-lasting datacenters that deliver the best user experience.
"The requirements on networks for high bandwidth, low latency and efficiency are growing swiftly, as are the pressures to simplify IT and reduce costs," said Kianoosh Naghshineh, CEO, Chelsio Communications. "With a robust feature set and advanced performance offload capability, the 25 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet CNA adapters empower customers with cloud, telco, and transaction-intensive enterprise networking environments to dynamically transform their software-defined IT infrastructures."
"In keeping with its technology deployment track record, Chelsio is pushing the Ethernet server I/O networking limit forward with the release of its 25 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet CNA solutions," said Greg Schulz, Senior Analyst, Server StorageIO and author of "Software Defined Data Infrastructure Essentials". "IT managers today can utilize Chelsio CNA offerings and when ready, migrate to 200 Gigabit Ethernet for their next generation, future proofed data centers. The new Chelsio CNA adapter cards support continuing demand by cloud and data center to meet server I/O networking performance as well as efficiency needs."
