PANDUIT and Solarflare[R] Showcase Next Generation High Speed Data Transport Capabilities for a Virtualized, Converged LAN/SAN Data Center Physical Infrastructure at Interop 2009.

PANDUIT's Unified Physical Infrastructure(SM) based solutions for the data center deliver high speed data transport capability in concert with high availability Also called "RAS" (reliability, availability, serviceability) or "fault resilient," it refers to a multiprocessing system that can quickly recover from a failure. There may be a minute or two of downtime while one system switches over to another, but processing will continue. , agility, and physical security. PANDUIT and Solarflare have been collaborating on leading 10Gb/s data transport capabilities that can optimize performance, power consumption and costs over 100m of bundled Category 6A cabling at Interop.

)(SM) solutions and Solarflare, the leading provider of standards-compliant 10GbE silicon are working together to demonstrate a virtualized, converged LAN/SAN data center network over 10G at the Interop show in Las Vegas Las Vegas (läs vā`gəs), city (1990 pop. 258,295), seat of Clark co., S Nev.; inc. 1911. It is the largest city in Nevada and the center of one of the fastest-growing urban areas in the United States. , May 19-21.

PANDUIT's Unified Physical Infrastructure solutions enable convergence across computing, communication, control, power, and security systems while improving availability, agility, and security. UPI-based data center solutions feature high speed data transport capabilities to connect server, storage, and network systems with unparalleled performance, reliability, and scalability to minimize risks associated with convergence and consolidation.

This high speed data transport capability is ideal as server virtualization becomes more prevalent in data center environments.

"Through innovative engineering and application expertise, the 10GIG[TM] Copper Cabling System eliminates the concerns regarding alien crosstalk," said Phil Chandler, Product Line Manager at PANDUIT. "We are able to demonstrate the cabling system's performance in conjunction with Solarflare's technology to show optimized virtualization An umbrella term for enhancing a computer's ability to do work. Following are the ways virtualization is used.

, iSCSI and network convergence over 10GBASE-T. This combination delivers a very cost-effective platform and minimizes the risks associated with convergence, performance, and ever-increasing user and application demands on the data center infrastructure."

The innovative 10GIG[TM] Copper Cabling System design utilizes PANDUIT's patent pending Matrix Technology in the cable and advanced compensation techniques in the connectivity to achieve channel bandwidth performance well above the TIA/EIA 568B.2-10 and ISO (1) See ISO speed.

The term is used in several ways, but it always refers to some offset of time and space from the norm. For example, in a network transmission, jitter would be a bit arriving either ahead or behind a standard clock cycle .

IT managers can build market data delivery systems designed to handle increasing message rates while reducing the message delivery latency and latency jitter between servers. The result is a higher rate of successful trades in less time and a more accurate, near instantaneous view of world markets.

"In these times of economic downturn, companies look to closely manage IT costs and simultaneously accelerate business operations by adopting next-generation technologies such as virtualization and cloud computing," said Bruce Tolley, Vice President of Corporate Marketing at Solarflare Communications. "Our high-performance 10 Gigabit Ethernet solutions provide a competitive advantage to organizations by making upgrading to 10Gbps speeds possible and cost-efficient."
