SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 15, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Chelsio Communications, Inc., the leading provider of 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) adapters, ASICs, and storage solutions, will be demonstrating the high performance capabilities of its Terminator 4 (T4), including full offload FCoE (Fibre Channel over Ethernet) and sub 3.5us UDP sockets latency, in booth #1361 at the Supercomputer Conference (SC'10) this week in New Orleans, LA.  Chelsio will also be showing its Unified Storage Server and Unified Storage Router appliance in demonstrations in the Chelsio booth.

The T4, a highly integrated, highly virtualized 10Gb Ethernet controller built around a programmable protocol-processing engine, includes fourth generation TCP offload, third generation iSCSI offload, and second generation iWARP RDMA over Ethernet offload.  The T4 now supports full FCoE and UDP offload as well.  In its booth, Chelsio will be showing sub 3.5us latency for UDP sockets and sub 4.0us iWARP RDMA MPI latency.  Chelsio will also be demonstrating high IOPs throughput of its Unified Storage Server (USS), software that enables high performance iSCSI SAN, NAS and RDMA storage solutions.  Chelsio is also demonstrating the high availability capabilities of its Unified Storage Router (USR).

In addition, Chelsio is participating in iWARP interoperability and iSCSI and FCoE offload performance demonstrations in both the Ethernet Alliance booth (#4513) and interoperability as well as iWARP and NFS over RDMA performance demos in the Open Fabrics Alliance booth (#1161).

"Chelsio has a growing presence at SC'10, which mirrors the growing influence of 10Gb Ethernet as the engine of convergence for high performance computing clusters, storage and networks," said Kianoosh Naghshineh, president and CEO of Chelsio.  "We are pleased to be able to demonstrate the performance capabilities of our T4, including low latency UDP."
