Tolly Group Certifies Force10 S2410 Data Center Switch Delivers Ultra-Low Switch Latency and High 10 Gigabit Ethernet Performance.

MILPITAS, Calif. -- The Force10 Networks(R) S2410 data center switch delivers high 10 Gigabit Ethernet performance and Ethernet switch latency measured in nanoseconds, according to third-party testing results from The Tolly Group. During testing, the Force10 S2410 demonstrated 100 percent line-rate throughput across 24 Ten Gigabit Ethernet ports at all packet sizes with latency of 300 nanoseconds -- the lowest switch latency recorded to date by The Tolly Group.

"The sub-microsecond latency of the Force10 S2410 is critical to the success of latency-sensitive applications," said Kevin Tolly, president and CEO of The Tolly Group, the industry's independent benchmarking consultancy. "The combination of that latency and line-rate 10 Gig performance makes the S2410 an attractive option to withstand the demands of high performance data center applications like cluster computing."

The Force10 S2410 combines leading density with the industry's lowest switch latency and port price to provide enterprises with a high performance foundation for next generation data centers that are characterized by growing traffic and real time applications, such as virtualization. The Tolly Group tests confirm that the Force10 S2410 delivers switch latency on par with Infiniband. With its ultra low switch latency, the S2410 enables IT managers to deploy 10 Gigabit Ethernet technology for high performance, latency-sensitive applications, eliminating the need to introduce proprietary and difficult-to-manage technologies into the network.

"Once again, Force10 has set the industry standard for 10 Gigabit Ethernet density and performance, delivering product metrics that are more than a generation ahead of the competition," said Andrew Feldman, vice president of marketing at Force10 Networks. "With the extremely low latency of the S2410, network managers can now use cost-effective Ethernet for latency-sensitive applications, including virtualization and storage."

As an expansion of the S-Series family of data center switches, the S2410 works in conjunction with the Force10 TeraScale E-Series to deliver a reliable and scalable end-to-end data center solution. The high density, low switch latency and low port cost of the S2410 provide IT managers with the flexibility they need to build high performance next generation data centers.
