NetEffect joins VMware's Community Source Program

The VMware Community Source program allows members to access and contribute to the source code for the VMware ESX hypervisor. The program is part of a set of co-development initiatives fostering the creation of new value-added products and functionality optimized for VMware virtualization. The deep, source-level collaboration also yields enhanced interoperability between VMware virtualization solutions and third-party vendor solutions.

As a VMware Community Source Program member, NetEffect is working closely with VMware to leverage the synergies between the VMware ESX hypervisor and NetEffect’s multi-GbE adapters. Optimizing virtualization efficiencies will further enhance the adapters’ proven hardware-accelerated, multi-NIC performance, increasing application productivity with even fewer server resources.

“Both NetEffect and VMware are committed to enabling enterprise users to optimize their use of and results from data center resources,” said Rick Maule, CEO of NetEffect. “The VMware Community Source program offers a unique opportunity to work with the industry’s virtualization leader to accelerate virtualized performance from every angle – taking full advantage of the NetEffect adapter’s built-in virtualization features. With this combination, network-intensive applications on virtualized single- and multi-core servers can achieve excellent results – helping data centers of all sizes reduce the space, power and cooling limitations while enhancing growth and profitability.”
