Gosh the market is literally littered with start-ups. And all are doing a lot of things. very curious what the "Virtualization webcast from 451 folks" has to say today.
Anyways here's the Press Release:
NetXen, Inc., the leader in multi-protocol 10-Gigabit Ethernet technology, today announced its NetSlice™ drivers for VMware Infrastructure 3 version 3.5. This is the first 10-Gigabit Intelligent NIC® solution to be natively supported by VMware, and is the first product of a technology collaboration between the two companies designed to optimize the I/O subsystem of virtual machines.
This announcement follows on the successful demonstration at VMworld in September, 2007 of a next-generation I/O architecture that NetXen and VMware have been collaborating on for more than two years.
"Virtualization, multicore processors and high-performance networking will form the basis of next-generation virtual datacenters," said Vikram Karvat, senior director of marketing, NetXen. "The new NetSlice driver with ESX Server 3.5 support will allow our customers to deploy leading-edge networking and virtualization technologies that are architected and validated jointly between NetXen and VMware.
