NextIO Strengthens PCIe Network Virtualization

Arthur Cole

Enterprise networking firm NextIO is pushing its PCI Express-based approach to I/O virtualization to the next level with a new platform that promises to connect virtually all data center elements under one simplified fabric.

 

The Adaptive Connect system uses a new generation of the company's chip-level virtualization technology to provide throughput up to 500 Gbps, coupled with an end-to-end software management stack capable of dynamic allocation, configuration and monitoring of I/O resources across multiple vendors.

 

Using the PCIe interconnect, NextIO says it can support any server, OS, hypervisor, application and I/O device on the market, providing a universal, scalable network infrastructure without deployment of expensive fixed network fabric devices.

 

The company claims that its platform can reduce network capital expenditures by 70 percent by allowing I/O and server resources to be scaled independently from each other to better meet network loads. The system is also adept at handling high-bandwidth applications, such as HD video, vector processing, financial modeling and cloud computing and storage services.
