Chelsio Delivers Unified Wire for HP BladeSystem c-Class

Chelsio Communications announced the general availability of its T3-based Unified Wire Accelerators, which enable server networking, storage networking and clustering on a single platform, for HP BladeSystem c-Class. Chelsio's S320EM-BS 10GbE Unified Wire expansion card solution has been qualified by HP for use by BladeSystem customers. The new expansion card from Chelsio is a dual-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) adapter with PCI Express interface. It offloads TCP/IP, iSCSI iWARP, classification, virtualization, and traffic management processing from the host system, freeing up host CPU cycles for other applications.
