In collaboration with AMCC, Tehuti Networks Inc. is demonstrating 10GbE low-cost storage solutions at the ESC Silicon Valley in San Jose. The demonstration shows the performance of a Linux-based NAS appliance running on the AMCC RAID-accelerated PowerPC 440SPe storage processor using the Tehuti Networks TN7585-D Network Interface Cards (NICs) for high-performance 10GbE connectivity. The server will stream video resident on the RAID5/6-protected NAS appliance over the 10GbE link, and will showcase a combination of end-to-end performance and reliability combined with low power and cost.
The TN7585-D NIC features the Tehuti Networks TN3016 controller, based on the company’s OptiStrata architecture, as well as a PCI Express 8-lane host bus interface and dual 10GbE ports. The solution offers an optimal combination of features implemented in hardware and firmware to deliver high performance with no impact to the operating system, power, real estate, and cost budgets, and supports all major operating systems including Microsoft, Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, XEN, and VMWARE.
“Demonstrating an end-to-end solution is important for the customers,” said Sam Fuller, vice president of marketing at AMCC. “The high performance achieved with the combined Tehuti Networks adapter and our PowerPC 440SPe storage processor addresses the challenges and requirements of this demanding market.” The demonstration is available at the AMCC booth.
