GIGABYTE Selects Cavium QLogic FastLinQ Ethernet Solutions

“GIGABYTE servers – across standard, Open Compute Platform (OCP) and rack scale form factors – deliver exceptional value, performance and scalability for multi-tenant cloud and virtualized enterprise datacenters,” said Etay Lee, GM of GIGABYTE Technology’s Server Division. “The addition of QLogic 10GbE and 25GbE FastLinQ Ethernet NICs in OCP and Standard form factors will enable delivery on all of the tenets of open standards, while enabling key virtualization technologies like SR-IOV and full offloads for overlay networks using VxLAN, NVGRE and GENEVE.”

OrionX Reports Position InfiniBand as the Leading HPI Technology and Mellanox the Leading Vendor

“For now, InfiniBand and its vendor community, notably Mellanox appear to have the upper hand from a performance and market presence perspective, but with Intel entering the HPI market, and new server architectures based on ARM and Power making a new claim on high performance servers, it is clear that a new industry phase is beginning. A healthy war chest combined with a well-executed strategy can certainly influence a successful outcome.”

Cavium to Acquire QLogic

“Today’s acquisition of QLogic is highly complementary and strategic to Cavium and it creates a diversified pure-play infrastructure semiconductor leader,” stated Syed Ali, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cavium. “QLogic’s industry leading products extend our market position in data center, cloud and storage markets, and further diversifies our revenue and customer base. In addition to the compelling strategic benefits, the manufacturing, sales and operating synergies will create significant value for our shareholders.”
