-- InfiniBand -- JNI is showing its new InfiniStar(TM) 2.5 Gb and 10 Gb HCA Modules, which were announced earlier this week at the InfiniBand Solutions Conference in Los Angeles. The result of joint development between JNI and Mellanox Technologies, the new JNI InfiniStar HCA Modules offer a method of clustering servers and connecting to storage through and InfiniBand-enabled switch.

The SAN is managed with the latest version of Veritas SANpoint Control and JNI's EZ Fibre configuration and management software. The package represents a complete enterprise-quality SAN using industry-leading components with 2 Gb speeds enabled from end-to-end. -- iSCSI -- JNI is showing a technology demonstration of its enterprise-quality storage networking software running on an iSCSI host bus adapter, all supported by JNI.
"In April JNI pledged to show customers products in Fibre Channel, InfiniBand and iSCSI at COMDEX, and we have delivered on that promise," said Neal Waddington, president and CEO of JNI Corporation. "Fulfilling the strategy I have outlined since that time, we are first to market with a 10 Gb InfiniBand HCA Module, first to market with 2 Gb CompactPCI and SBus Fibre Channel HBAs; and producing iSCSI solutions on a time-to-market basis with the rest of the industry. Comdex attendees will be the first to see these public demonstrations, which reinforce our commitment to expanding on our core Fibre Channel base, to encompass enterprise-quality connectivity solutions that includes InfiniBand and iSCSI technology."
