NEW ORLEANS, November 16, 2010 -- SC10 -- Voltaire Ltd., a leading provider of scale-out datacenter fabrics, today announced that it is collaborating with Emulex to deliver end-to-end 10GbE solutions to customers. The two companies have completed interoperability testing and cross-certification of Voltaire Vantage 10GbE switches and software and Emulex OneConnect Universal Converged Network Adapters (UCNAs). The joint solution will be featured in a live demonstration at SC10 in New Orleans this week.
The demonstration held in Voltaire booth 3139 highlights Voltaire's Unified Fabric Manager (UFM) software orchestrating end-to-end virtual machine connectivity for multi-vendor scale-out datacenter fabrics.
"Voltaire and Emulex are well-aligned and positioned as 10GbE adoption in the datacenter heats up," said Asaf Somekh, vice president of marketing at Voltaire. "Voltaire's 10GbE switches and Emulex OneConnect 10GbE UCNA solutions are both carried by HP and IBM creating an easy path to deployment by our mutual customers."

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.
The private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
