Enterprise Subscriptions Include Tiered Levels of Service and Support From Basic Business Day Response to Premium 24/7 Worldwide ServiceWednesday, September 22nd, 2010
IRVINE, CA – Solarflare Communications, the leader in 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) data center solutions, announced today the release of its EnterpriseOnload™ application acceleration middleware. Solarflare’s EnterpriseOnload is a Linux-based, open source, high-performance application accelerator that reduces application latency by 50 percent and increases message rates by 3 to 4 times. The product is ideal for applications that benefit from lower latency (with bounded jitter) and higher throughput, including financial services, geosciences, biosciences, weather and other high-performance computing (HPC) applications. The latest EnterpriseOnload release includes three new features important to customers: performance enhancements that deliver lower latency, 802.1Q virtual LAN (VLAN) trunking support for manageability and separation of IP traffic, and 802.1ad Link Aggregation support for higher bandwidth, load balancing and redundancy.
EnterpriseOnload distinguishes itself from OpenOnload® through an annual subscription model, which includes a number of valuable benefits and services, such as validated source code, documentation, bug fixes and regular releases. Most importantly, EnterpriseOnload offers three levels of service and technical support that range from basic business day response to premium 24/7 worldwide support. Solarflare customers will continue to have access to OpenOnload from openonload.org.
Large enterprise customers who need to comply with Sarbanes-Oxley or similar international regulations are best suited for the Premium subscription, as it delivers worldwide 24/7 service and support with very tight service level agreements that are vital for this market.
