MILPITAS, Calif., Sept. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Engenio Information Technologies, a global provider of innovative and highly scalable modular storage systems for the open enterprise, will demonstrate a fully native InfiniBand (IB) storage solution at Storage Networking World (SNW) Europe, which will be held at the Congress Centre in Frankfurt, Germany, September 6-7, 2005. This IB technology demonstration reinforces Engenio's leadership in interconnection technologies and builds on its recent 4Gb/s Fibre Channel product releases.
InfiniBand has been an industry standard since 1999 when major server vendors worked together to develop a new I/O fabric for servers and storage systems. The goal of the collaboration was to provide IT managers with a better way to deploy, scale, and manage computing power within the datacenter. InfiniBand is the only 10-Gigabit per second (10 Gb/s) transport that enables industry standard servers to be clustered together for reliable, available, scaleable and high performance enterprise computing.
"InfiniBand can dramatically improve performance, server efficiency, scalability and overall network reliability," said Steve Gardner, Engenio Director of Product Marketing. "Leading-edge organizations in High Performance Computing have already selected InfiniBand for server interconnection, and are anxiously awaiting native InfiniBand storage. Commercial data centers will be next."
Educating attendees about which technologies to be on the look out for in the next 12 months, and how solutions such as InfiniBand can deliver measurable business benefits, is the main focus for Engenio at SNW Europe. Engenio continues to be a driving force behind end-user education, focusing on initiatives that deliver clear information regarding the benefits of InfiniBand.
Also taking place at SNW Europe is a presentation on tiered storage by Julie Ryan, Engenio Director of Alliances and the Storage Network Industry Association (SNIA) Conference Committee Chairperson.
