Tehuti Networks Secures $4.2 Million in Series A Funding; Investors Support Tehuti Networks' Unique Approach to TCP/IP Acceleration.
In recent years, the speed in Ethernet networks has increased faster than computer processor speeds. As more data flows through companies' networks, the performance of servers and network appliances has declined because the central processing units (CPUs) cannot keep pace. As a result, TCP/IP processing is quickly becoming a bottleneck in 1 Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet networks.
"Tehuti Networks has developed a unique approach to solving the TCP/IP processing problem that is becoming critical for many large enterprises," said Miki Granski, chairman of the board for Tehuti Networks and CEO of investment firm Alice Lab, a partner in Alice Ventures. "The company's unique value proposition combined with the executive team's proven leadership and operational experience will enable Tehuti Networks to capitalize on a significant market opportunity."
"Tehuti Networks is delighted to have the support of such strong investors," Tehuti Networks' CEO Arie Brish commented. "The addition of our lead investor, Alice Ventures, shows a tremendous vote of confidence in Tehuti Networks and they will substantially extend our perspective and reach as we ramp our business from a development to product phase."
Tehuti Networks' Network Traffic Accelerators
Tehuti Networks' Network Traffic Accelerator (NTA) chips increase system performance up to five times while enabling quick and simple integration into both new and existing platforms. In addition, with Tehuti Networks' NTAs, there is virtually no cost-adder over conventional, lower performance implementations. These very low power chips are transparent to the operating system and move specifically selected TCP/IP processing functions from software onto hardware, redistributing functions to remove TCP bottlenecks and reducing latency. This dramatically speeds up enterprise communications, adds flexibility and allows applications to take advantage of the high-speed, high-performance bandwidth that could not otherwise be realized.
