QLogic To Address Clustered Application With Server-Based SSD Caching And SAN Storage At Oracle OpenWorld 2012


WHO:      QLogic Corp. (Nasdaq:QLGC), a global leader and technology innovator in high performance networking.

WHAT:     QLogic will exhibit its new Mt. Rainier technology and participate in a live video broadcast.

QLogic to Demonstrate Ground-breaking Mt. Rainier Technology

With the recent unveiling of its Mt. Rainier project, QLogic is bringing server-based SSD caching to SAN storage in a clustered application configuration. QLogic will demonstrate the benefits of this shared cache technology in a real-world, enterprise environment. Running Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) on the latest Intel x86-based servers and Oracle's Pillar Axiom Storage System, QLogic will show how this technology offloads cache processing and SSD data management from the server to the Mt. Rainier adapter to accelerate application processing in mission-critical clustered environments. By gaining faster access to their shared data through Mt. Rainier, users can make critical business decisions more quickly.

Using a host-based caching Fibre Channel interface, Mt. Rainier technology offers Oracle RAC users a highly compelling server-side solution. In the demonstrated configuration, Mt. Rainier improves latencies of the SAN, avoids access limitations of target-side SSD, and resolves the cache coherency problem traditionally associated with server-based caching techniques in clustered applications.

QLogic Executives to Appear on theCUBE

QLogic executives will make guest appearances on theCUBE, a live video broadcast co-anchored by Dave Vellante, CEO of Wikibon and John Furrier, CEO of SiliconANGLE. theCUBE will broadcast from the QLogic exhibit at Oracle OpenWorld 2012.

Cameron Brett, director of solutions marketing, and Ryan Klein, senior director, worldwide technical sales, will discuss how Mt. Rainier technology breaks new ground by addressing the challenges created by multi-server, clustered architectures, hypervisors and the proliferation of virtual machines (VMs).

Rob Davis, vice president and chief technology officer, will be on hand to discuss a variety of key networking trends including:
  • Converged networking
  • Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and iSCSI adoption
  • 10Gb Ethernet (10GbE) and 40Gb Ethernet (40GbE)
  • 16Gb and 32Gb Fibre Channel
  • Cloud storage

  • Tuesday, Oct. 2 at 11:40 a.m. Pacific Time: Cameron Brett, director of solutions marketing and Ryan Klein, senior director, worldwide technical sales
  • Wednesday, Oct. 3 at 10:20 a.m. Pacific Time: Rob Davis, vice president and chief technology officer
