NetEffect to Showcase Latest Accelerated Ethernet adapters at VMware Partner Pavilion (Booth #826) at Interop Las Vegas
NetEffect, innovators of next-generation accelerated Ethernet connectivity solutions for the data center, will exhibit alongside other VMware partners in VMware’s Technology Partner Alliance Pavilion at Interop Las Vegas. NetEffect will showcase their latest multi-Gb accelerated Ethernet adapters and software, demonstrating the way in which the company’s solutions bring new levels of performance and power efficiencies to virtualized application environments. 

The VMware Partner Pavilion (Booth #826) is located adjacent to the VMware main booth (#927) in the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.  NetEffect staff will be available for discussion and demonstrations during all exhibit hours from April 29 – May 1.

NetEffect is the only manufacturer today delivering accelerated 1GbE and 10GbE Ethernet adapters with a full implementation of the IETF-approved iWARP extensions to Ethernet. Their unique, patented architecture achieves unmatched bandwidth, low latency, power efficiency, and CPU productivity to networking, storage and clustering applications, achieving scalable, predictable performance even in the dense, compute and I/O-intensive configurations that characterize virtualized environments.  

NetEffect adapters implement many features useful in accelerating performance in virtualized server environments including:

  • internal Layer 2 switching of packets between virtual machines,
  • hardware support for multiple NICs,
  • intelligent packet classification,
  • integrated I/O MMU (for hardware supported address translation), and
  • high-performance TCP/IP offload and RDMA for acceleration of storage, VMotion and virtual machine traffic.
