Voltaire UFM Virtualizes 10 GbE Data Center Fabric
Voltaire UFM 3.0 Ethernet fabric management software dynamically orchestrates end-to-end virtual machine connectivity for multi-vendor, scale-out data center networks.
VVoltaire Ltd. plans to demonstrate what the company calls the 'industry's first end-to-end, virtualized, scale-out data center' at Interop, April 27-29, 2010 in Las Vegas. As noted in the news release on Market Wire, the demonstration uses Voltaire's recently introduced Unified Fabric Manager (UFM) 3.0 software to demonstrate physical and virtual switches delivering guaranteed levels of service per application.
"The demonstration includes the Voltaire Vantage 8500, a low latency 10 GbE Layer 2 core switch, which provides CEE capabilities such as lossless traffic, as well as the BLADE RackSwitch G8124, HP ProCurve 6600-24XG switch, Intel Ethernet Server Adapter X520-DA2, Emulex OneConnect Universal Converged Network Adapters (UCNAs), and VMware ESX 4.0. The converged fabric also tunnels storage traffic over 10GbE with virtualized connectivity to Fibre Channel storage."
