Engine receives 3rd Round of USDOE funds
MA -- 10/05/05 --
has been awarded a US Department of Energy Phase II
grant, for continuing the prototype development of a 10
- 40 Gbps offload engine system for Grid Computing. The
Engine is a C-NIC product that performs offloads
for TCP/IP, DDP, FEC, and IPSec, and is designed for WAN
or LAN connectivity. Total USDOE Phase I and II funding,
for the SeaFire
Engine, will be nearly $1M once the systems are deployed.
National Laboratories have signed-up for Phase II Beta Testing
of the product.
host data bandwidth reaches or exceeds 10 Gigabits per second
(Gbps), the software, hardware, and protocol designs change
when compared to present TOE and R-NIC solutions within
industry. In May 2005, SeaFire
Micros, Inc. announced the completion of its second
Phase I USDOE funded project. Through design, simulation,
and network testing, the resulting architecture was theoretically
verified to operate from 10 - 40 Gbps.
corporation continues to focus on both commercial and government
sector applications for its Grid Computing Product, for
use in WAN, blade servers, storage area networks, and defense
systems, as communication speeds exceed 10-40 Gbps.
