Foundry Networks has formed an alliance with Myricom, a leader in high performance computing (HPC), to jointly develop and deliver 10Gigabit Ethernet solutions within Foundry’s HPC Ethernet Alliance Program.
Foundry Networks has formed an alliance with Myricom, a leader in high performance computing (HPC), to jointly develop and deliver 10Gigabit Ethernet solutions within Foundry’s HPC Ethernet Alliance Programme.
Foundry’s HPC Ethernet Alliance Program is designed to accelerate deployment of high-performance Gigabit Ethernet and 10Gigabit Ethernet solutions. Foundry will work closely with Myricom to deliver standards-based, high-performance 10Gigabit Ethernet solutions to both the HPC community and advanced enterprise data centres.
As part of the alliance, Foundry and Myricom will work together on interoperability testing and benchmarking of Foundry’s 10Gigabit Ethernet switches with Myricom’s standards-based Myri-10G 10-Gigabit Ethernet NICs to provide customers with seamless integration and end-to-end performance.
The companies will also cooperate on marketing and training to promote the benefits of an integrated, solutions-based HPC networking approach.
“This alliance brings together the performance leaders in enterprise Ethernet switching and high-performance computing. The combination of Foundry’s high-performance 10Gigabit Ethernet switching products and Myricom’s low-cost, standards-based 10Gigabit Ethernet NICs will benefit both the HPC community and enterprise data centres.
“In addition, Foundry’s presence in the enterprise data centre will help extend Myricom’s technology beyond the HPC user community, bringing the benefits of Myricom’s low-cost and high-performance 10Gigabit Ethernet NIC technology to the mainstream enterprise market,” says Mark Danckert, director of alliances for Foundry Networks.
