Neterion's 10 Gigabit Ethernet Driver Included in VMware ESX 3.5


Engineering teams from Neterion and VMware have worked closely to mutually optimize support of 10 GbE in ESX, now offering near-line rate 10 Gbps performance at parity with native Linux or Windows operating systems. This was demonstrated at VMworld in San Francisco when Neterion, IBM and VMware jointly ran virtualized machines at 10 GbE speeds comparable to servers running single, non-virtualized applications. Many network intensive tasks, such as VMware's VMotion, require a large network pipe to allow the nearly instantaneous migration of virtualized applications. As the datasets of these applications grow larger, Gigabit Ethernet will not be sufficient. Neterion's 10 GbE adapters remove this network bottleneck, enabling a new class of I/O-intensive applications to be virtualized.

"VMware ESX 3.5 is the breakout play for the 10 GbE industry as it is the first major virtualization OS to support 10 GbE," noted Dave Zabrowski, president & CEO of Neterion. "Neterion's native driver in ESX 3.5, teamed with our Xframe V-NIC hardware, provides leading OEMs a substantial advantage in the race to deliver true virtualized servers to their end users without the significant performance penalty experienced with other solutions," Zabrowski continued. "While today's announcement is the coming out party for 10 GbE in virtualized servers, the 10 GbE party is just getting started as we will see increased industry support across multiple virtualized platforms for 10 GbE in the coming months."

3PAR adds native LDAP support to simplify administration

3PAR®, the leading global provider of utility storage, announced today native support for lightweight directory access protocol (LDAP). Support for LDAP enables centralized user authentication and authorization using a standard protocol for managing access to IT resources. With 3PAR’s support for LDAP, customers are able to now integrate 3PAR Utility Storage--a simple, cost-efficient, and massively scalable storage platform—with standard, open enterprise directory services. The result is simplified security administration with centralized access control and identity management.

“3PAR Utility Storage already provides us with a reliable, shared, and easy-to-use consolidated storage platform,” said Burzin Engineer, Vice President of Infrastructure Services at Shopzilla. "Now, with 3PAR support for LDAP, managing security commonly--across all our resources, including storage--is also simple and efficient.”
