SolarFlare joins VMware Community Program

Solarflare Communications, provider of standards-based 10 Gigabit Ethernet silicon and reference designs, today announced that it has joined both the VMware Community Source and Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) programs as part of its collaboration with VMware. The co-development effort as a VMware Community Source program member allows Solarflare to deliver the next level of high-performance Ethernet solutions to VMware Infrastructure users.

As a VMware Community Source and Technology Alliance Partner program member, Solarflare plans to expand its VMware relationship by co-developing and validating enhancements to VMware ESX Server and optimizing Solarflare® Solarstorm™ 10 Gigabit Ethernet controllers for VMware Infrastructure environments. Solarflare is also collaborating with VMware to qualify its drivers, which are expected to be distributed by either VMware or Solarflare. Participation in these VMware programs is an important part of Solarflare’s overall goal to drive industry standards on virtual infrastructure and deliver simple, standards-based solutions to its OEM customers.

“VMware delivers tangible business benefits to IT managers by improving server utilization and greatly simplifying manageability. 10 Gigabit Ethernet, especially 10GBASE-T, is crucial in virtualized environments to keep up with the increased I/O demands on servers while maintaining ease of use and low cost,” said Bruce Tolley, VP of marketing at Solarflare. “Solarflare’s products are optimized for use in VMware environments, thereby bringing to data centers the capability to support even wider adoption of virtualization.”

“VMware continues to work with its partner ecosystem to innovate in areas that complement the core value provided by VMware Infrastructure,” said Bernie Mills, senior director of ecosystem programs and marketing at VMware. “By utilizing the tools and resources available to VMware co-development program members, Solarflare is improving its overall ability to deliver innovative solutions working on the leading virtual infrastructure platform on the market.”
