first came on the scene, 66MHz PCI was the bandwidth watermark.
FIO proposed alternative technology to that proposed by the Intel-led NGIO
group, backed by Dell, Hitachi Data Systems Ltd, NEC Corp, Siemens Computer Systems and Sun.
The LSI Logic GigaBlaze transceiver cores were essential for the successful volume launch of Fibre Channel products into the marketplace and they will also be key to the volume launch of NGIO
Our fourth quarter capped off a solid 2010 for GSI Commerce, as we grew revenues by 35% and NGIO
by 27% for the year.
Approval of the specification means that implementation can begin immediately," Charles Andres, NGIO
marketing working group chairman and group manager, I/O Technologies, Market Development Engineering, Sun Microsystems said when announcing the release of the specification.
The cores are designed to be integrated into system level ASICs, which will form part of the NGIO
Giganet's support of the NGIO
specification allows us to continue to offer our customers the fastest server-to-server cluster interconnect possible.
The specification details are the blueprint for each component of the NGIO
will be highlighted as part of a keynote on February 24 _- "Intel- Based Server Technology and Platform Advancements" _- to be delivered by John Miner, vice president and general manager of Intel's Enterprise Server Group.
By combining the power of CMOS integrated transceivers with the ease of use of LSI Logic's CoreWare(R) methodology, the GigaBlaze transceiver cores can be easily integrated into system-level ASICs to implement the new NGIO
Also at Intel, Robinson was chief architect for Intel's InfiniBand and NGIO
initiatives, Technical Working Group co-chair of the InfiniBand Trade Association and Steering Committee chair of the NGIO
A spokesperson for Intel Corp said this week that its NGIO
server specification could work just as well over internet protocol as the rival Future I/O architecture, despite claims made to the contrary.
