Designed for high-frequency trading, market data, video streaming and other applications that require one-to-many multicast data distribution over an IP infrastructure, Blade has announced its RackSwitch 10 Gigabit Ethernet switch that delivers Multicast protocols at sub-700 nanosecond port-to-port latency. According to the company in this PR-USA news release, the RackSwitch G8124 is equipped with 24 SFP+ 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports and ultra-low latency for virtualization, financial analytics, clusters, medical imaging, animation, VOIP, Web 2.0, FCoE and iSCSI storage and other environments that require more I/O bandwidth.
