QLogic To Present Solutions And Strategies For I/O Virtualization And Convergence On 10Gb Ethernet Networks

Stocks in this article: QLGC


WHO: QLogic Corp. (Nasdaq:QLGC), a global leader and technology innovator in high performance networking.
WHAT: QLogic will present at the Ethernet Technology Summit, the only Silicon Valley conference and exhibition featuring the latest advances in Ethernet networking. QLogic experts will provide attendees with insight and practical information on the current state of Ethernet with presentations covering convergence over Ethernet, integration of 16Gb Fibre Channel and 10Gb Ethernet (10GbE) into current infrastructures, and new advances in I/O virtualization. QLogic speakers and topics include:
  * Parag Mehta, senior director of product marketing, will discuss " Convergence Over Ethernet—Today and Beyond" on Thursday, April 4 at 8:30 a.m. Organizations are moving toward convergence where storage traffic is the leading application. Most commonly seen in blade server and top-of-rack deployments, Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) is becoming increasingly popular. Going forward, organizations will need FCoE fabrics to scale out, and end-to-end service-level agreements will be required. Tomorrow's converged networks will allow for larger FCoE switched fabrics and will accommodate point-to-point and point-to-multipoint communications. Attendees will learn how recent and upcoming advances in Ethernet capabilities will lead to new classes of service and increased convergence.
  * QLogic senior manager Shawn Fitzgerald will discuss "Innovating at the Network Edge—Integrating 16Gb Fibre Channel and 10GbE Technologies with Current Infrastructure" on Wednesday, April 3 at 9:50 a.m. While virtualization provides many benefits, virtual deployment workloads have been increasing the demands placed on the network I/O infrastructure, which can significantly impact system and application performance. To address performance demands, 16Gb Fibre Channel and/or 10GbE converged network adapters can provide the required capability within the network. Vendors will be offering flexibility in the various methods of storage network implementation to provide investment protection and the ability to move directly to the latest technology platforms. This session will help attendees understand their choices and options to meet the increasing demands for I/O connectivity.
  * Fitzgerald will also lend his expertise on "Advances in I/O Virtualization—Addressing the Challenges of Virtualized Server, Network and Storage Infrastructures" on Wednesday, April 3 at 3:10 p.m. Fitzgerald will present an overview of the architecture issues introduced by implementing virtualization technologies within the data center. Attendees will learn about the requirements for and benefits of solutions such as Virtual Ethernet Bridging, Single-Root I/O Virtualization and Virtual Ethernet Port Aggregation. These solutions provide per-VM traffic visibility, improved bandwidth utilization and simplified management. Simple use cases will illustrate typical deployments of these technologies in virtualized data center environments.
WHEN: Tuesday, April 2 through Thursday, April 4
WHERE: Ethernet Technology Summit
