Voltaire Achieves IBTA Certification with Entire InfiniBand Product Line

2/20/2004 - Voltaire, a leading provider of high performance InfiniBand solutions, announced that its entire product family of InfiniBand switches, routers, adapters with host stack, and fabric management software have been certified by the InfiniBand Trade Association (IBTA). This enables Voltaire to offer the only certified end-to-end InfiniBand solution with I/O for network and storage connectivity. In addition, Voltaire's ISR 9600 was again recognized as the largest (96 ports) InfiniBand switch to be certified by the IBTA.

Released this week, the IBTA's integrator's list is based on the test results of the organization's recent InfiniBand product PlugFest, during which products from InfiniBand companies successfully passed a battery of rigorous compliancy and interoperability tests. The IBTA integrator's list is an important reference point for today's enterprises and HPC research facilities as they move to deploy high performance InfiniBand solutions to enhance and accelerate connectivity for their database and server clusters. Based on industry standards, InfiniBand is increasingly being adopted as a high speed cluster interconnect in lieu of Gigabit Ethernet or proprietary technologies.

Voltaire submitted for testing its entire family of high performance InfiniBand solutions, more products than any other participating vendor. The following Voltaire products achieved certification:

"Voltaire is pleased to be recognized by the IBTA for our technology leadership in developing standards-based, high performance InfiniBand solutions for HPC and enterprise customers," said Arun Jain, vice president of marketing, Voltaire. "Having the IBTA's 'stamp of approval' on all of our products is an important assurance to customers that they can fully leverage the performance benefits that Voltaire InfiniBand solutions bring to grid and clustered computing environments."
