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."

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…
