SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ — Chelsio Communications today announced an agreement designating the North American Components business of Arrow Electronics, Inc. as a distributor for Chelsio's line of 10 Gigabit Ethernet ASIC and adapter solutions for unified wire networking.
Chelsio's Terminator 3 (T3) ASIC and the portfolio of T3-based 10Gb Ethernet adapters allow replacement of different fabric technologies in a wide range of data center applications and constitute the industry's broadest 10Gb Ethernet product line.
Chelsio's adapters address the industry demand for convergence of networking, clustering and storage fabrics and dramatically increase both applications' performance and communications bandwidth. Delivering protocol-offload and acceleration technology, these adapters are ideally suited for volume and high-performance servers, networking appliances, and storage systems. They provide the ability to run unmodified FibreChannel and InfiniBand applications over the same legacy Ethernet switching fabric, thus providing a tremendous return on investment to the data center managers.
"The 10GbE market is a critical part of our business from the OEM perspective," said Robert Behn, vice president, Arrow. "As 10Gb solutions get into high-volume deployment in enterprise data centers, we want to offer leadership products for our OEMs to feature in this space. We feel Chelsio's unified wire adapter family is a 'no-compromise' choice offering leadership performance across networking, storage, and cluster communications, and flexibility for our OEMs to embed into solutions which support emerging data-center initiatives including blade computing and server virtualization."
"Arrow brings to partners and customers a solid record of success in the embedded market. Chelsio's agreement with Arrow is another step in our goal of accelerating deployment of our leading-edge 10GbE unified wire solutions," said Kianoosh Naghshineh, president and chief executive officer, Chelsio Communications. "Chelsio expects broader availability and expanded market adoption of our T3 line of adapters through this agreement."
