NextIO Brings Enterprise-Level Agility and Investment Protection to the Top of Rack
NextIO (, a provider of next-generation I/O solutions, today announced it will demonstrate its next-generation Top of Rack architecture featuring the flexibility and agility of enterprise-class modular chassis integrated into the NextIO Top of Rack PCI Express appliance. The demonstrations will take place at VMworld 2009, August 31-September 3, booth #2438 at Moscone Center in San Francisco.

To showcase the serviceability of its low-cost Top of Rack architecture that’s easy to deploy and manage, NextIO will demonstrate “Bandwidth-on-Demand” for VMware hosts. NextIO will conduct performance upgrades by adding Intel 10Gb I/O in the NextIO appliance without impacting the LAN fabric or operating servers.

NextIO will also demonstrate the performance benefits of pooling and sharing Top of Rack SSD storage against standard disk drives. In each case, network and storage bandwidth can be added to VMware servers while existing services are running, allowing systems administrators to add pooled resources and new I/O technologies on the fly.

“Enterprise customers looking to consolidate server I/O are demanding enterprise-class functionality and performance at Top of Rack pricing. NextIO has responded to this demand with a novel architecture that brings the modularity currently found only in data center core switches to stackable, Top of Rack products,” said K.C. Murphy, CEO, NextIO. “NextIO customers can now upgrade an entire rack-level infrastructure with zero server downtime in a few mouse clicks using a simple, yet powerful management solution.”

NextIO provides customers with cost savings, flexibility and manageability, while protecting their existing infrastructure investments. As the industry leader in next-generation I/O virtualization solutions, NextIO provides enterprise-class servers with faster installations, network-transparent I/O upgrades, minimal service disruptions, and less operational management overhead.
