CUPERTINO, Calif., Nov. 27 -- Neterion Inc., the industry leader in 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) adapters and a VMware Technology Alliance Partner, announced that its Xframe V-NIC 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapters will have native support in the upcoming release of VMware's ESX 3.5 virtualized operating system.
Engineering teams from Neterion and VMware have worked closely to mutually optimize support of 10 GbE in ESX, now offering near-line rate 10 Gbps performance at parity with native Linux or Windows operating systems. This was demonstrated at VMworld in San Francisco when Neterion, IBM and VMware jointly ran virtualized machines at 10 GbE speeds comparable to servers running single, non-virtualized applications. Many network intensive tasks, such as VMware's VMotion, require a large network pipe to allow the nearly instantaneous migration of virtualized applications. As the datasets of these applications grow larger, Gigabit Ethernet will not be sufficient. Neterion's 10 GbE adapters remove this network bottleneck, enabling a new class of I/O-intensive applications to be virtualized.
"VMware ESX 3.5 is the breakout play for the 10 GbE industry as it is the first major virtualization OS to support 10 GbE," noted Dave Zabrowski, president and CEO of Neterion. "Neterion's native driver in ESX 3.5, teamed with our Xframe V-NIC hardware, provides leading OEMs a substantial advantage in the race to deliver true virtualized servers to their end users without the significant performance penalty experienced with other solutions.
"While today's announcement is the coming out party for 10 GbE in virtualized servers, the 10 GbE party is just getting started as we will see increased industry support across multiple virtualized platforms for 10 GbE in the coming months."
Neterion's Xframe V-NIC products offer a unique multi-channel design, engineered to enhance virtualized server environments. This "virtual superhighway" offers totally independent hardware-based transmit and receive paths that can be reset independently. Each path can handle separate interrupt schemes by virtual machine or processor core, allowing implementation of prioritized traffic for true quality-of-service (QoS) support.
To learn more about how Neterion’s 10 GbE adapters enhance virtualized environments, download the new white paper, titled "Virtualized Infrastructure: Driving Higher-Value Using 10 Gigabit Ethernet." The paper, written by IT industry veterans (including the ex-CIO of VMware), demonstrates that 10 GbE is integral to future-proofing virtualization projects.

Neterion is the leader in 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapters that provide high speed solutions for customers' server and storage systems. Xframe V-NIC is the industry's highest performing line of 10 GbE adapters, allowing IT managers to virtualize many more applications per physical server, drastically decreasing costs when deploying virtualized servers. The company was founded in 2001 and is headquartered in Cupertino, California with an additional office in Ottawa, Canada. More information on Neterion Inc., can be found at www.neterion.com/.
The ever-growing complexity of scientific and engineering problems continues to pose new computational challenges. Thus, we present a novel federation model that enables end-users with the ability to aggregate heterogeneous resource scale problems. The feasibility of this federation model has been proven, in the context of the UberCloud HPC Experiment, by gathering the most comprehensive information to date on the effects of pillars on microfluid channel flow.
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
