Voltaire Delivers , 96-port20 Gbps InfiniBand Switch

Voltaire introduced a new 20 Gbps, 96-port InfiniBand switching platform for high-performance unified fabrics in the data center. The Grid Director ISR 2004 delivers nanosecond latencies to enable high-performance applications to run on distributed server, network and storage resources. Voltaire said the switch could be combined with its recently introduced 10 Gigabit Ethernet line board and 4 Gigabits/second Fibre Channel storage router to enable a unified fabric in the data center. Unified fabrics provide seamless, high performance networking services between InfiniBand fabrics, Fibre Channel SANs and Ethernet LANs over a single high performance fabric with multiple virtual interfaces replacing actual physical adapters.
