4/4/2003 - InfiniSwitchTM Corporation, an acknowledged leader in switched fabric networking solutions, announced that it had obtained IBM ServerProvenTM status. The components of the InfiniSwitch solution are the first InfiniBand® products to achieve this recognition.
The InfiniSwitch solution, which includes a 12/24 Port Leaf Switch and a dual port Host Channel Adapter, passed compatibility testing for three IBM eServer xSeries platforms: the x335, x345 and x440. The ServerProven designation helps customers be confident that these InfiniSwitch products are compatible with the tested IBM servers.
“IBM has been a driving force behind the development of InfiniBand technology,” said Jeff Benck, IBM xSeries Director of Product Marketing. “We have worked closely with InfiniSwitch and are impressed with their technology and expertise in the switching and management software arenas. By achieving ServerProven status, InfiniSwitch has shown that it brings the level of expertise and quality that we look for in qualifying third-party products for our customers.”
The IBM ServerProven Program is intended to help provide customers with assurance that a product will install quickly, start up easily, and run reliably on IBM servers.
“Being the first company with InfiniBand products admitted to the IBM ServerProven program is a tremendous accomplishment for us,” said Alisa Nessler, CEO InfiniSwitch. “With this testing completed our customers can have the confidence that our products will perform seamlessly on IBM servers."
