Broadcom is all atwitter about what it says is the industry's "first true single-chip, dual-port 10 gigabit Ethernet converged network interface controller (C-NIC)." It figures the device, sampling now and due to be in production by the end of the year, will mean it keeps its corner on the market. It does, after all, own 80% of the enterprise space, product line manager Burhan Masood said. The roughly 7W chip, the NetXtreme II BCM57710, was developed for high-volume mainstream servers whose Ethernet controllers have thitherto for been limited to 1 Gbps rates. It's supposed to be an easy migration path and supports small form factors and PCB footprints. No external memory is required. To save the CPU from stressing, Broadcom says its widget can simultaneously process network, storage, processor clustering and management traffic on-chip while enabling convergence of dif... (more)

Are you Application vAvailable?

At Marathon Technologies, we service a range of industries that must have their applications up and running at all times, or as we call it: vAvailable. vAvailable is the integration of virtualization and high availability technologies to create a cost-effective solution that ensures applications won’t go down. With virtualization technologies, high availability has now launched well between today’s alternative solutions such as clustering. This session will define vAvailable and this is a huge step between today’s alternatives. Mr. Melnick will discuss a new standard for application ... (more)

HP Seeks To Length its Lead in Blade Server

HP has got IBM on the run in blades, having displaced it as blade leader last quarter on the strength of its c-Class machines and now it's got a follow-up punch - blade network virtualization technologies. It believes it's redefining blade server connectivity and simplifying management in a way that will distance it still further in front of IBM with its promised Virtual Connect Ethernet and Fibre Channel modules. The widgetry is supposed to let administrators wire once and then add, replace or recover servers on-the-fly, something they haven't been able to do and want to badly. ... (more)
