Recently, Emulex and IBM announced the signing of a multi-year patent cross-licensing agreement that will support Emulex accelerate its integration in the IBM platform OneConnect? Common integrated network adapter (? UCNA). These adapters can be integrated into IBM's Systemp, Systemx and BladeCenter, virtualization, high performance server.
Emulex is currently IBM servers to provide its LightPulse? 4Gb / s and 8Gb / s Fibre Channel Adapter, for virtualization, database services, data center storage networking and cloud computing environments. IBM Patent License will accelerate access to real
Emulex and IBM connectivity products are virtualization, high-performance data center solution for integration, support for 10Gb / s Ethernet, 16Gb / s Fibre Channel, 10Gb/siSCSI and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) solutions for the network to achieve reunification connection.
"This license agreement, in support Emulex to expand its network product portfolio and help us in the guest virtual technology adopted such IBM high performance servers in the data center environment." IBM Systems and Jishujituan module Kai Fabu DougBalog Deputy CEO, said, "This agreement demonstrates IBM Zhi Li Liao in the ecosystem partners to achieve commitment to innovation, which we drive industry interoperability, providing customers with the best selection of goal is the same. "
EmulexOneConnectUCNA platform is the only support the TCP / IP, iSCSI and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) protocol for single-chip hardware supports hardware offload and acceleration CNA solutions, and has been optimized to support both IP and storage networking needs so that data center managers to use an integrated solution to meet the network adapters, storage and clustering applications, performance and architecture needs. "This agreement is based on Emulex's close collaboration with IBM, to develop the emerging converged network solutions on the historical background." Emulex CEO JimMcCluney said, "IBM has been developing and supporting Ethernet enhancements to achieve standardization, support for next-generation data center network infrastructure to achieve integration in the lead. With the patent cross-license agreement and our efforts, we can further integrate our joint development efforts, providing solutions for end customers to support their data centers to improve integration, efficiency, flexibility and scalability.
