Virtualizing the Infrastructure With Sun x86 Blades

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Sun Microsystems has a long history of engineering systems that are optimized for network-enabled workloads. In the age of blade servers, this is translating into new designs for network enablement that improve the rate at which data is transmitted to and from the blades themselves. Sun has innovated by developing a sophisticated shared Network Interface Card (NIC) called the Sun Blade 6000 Virtualized Multi-Fabric 10GbE Network Express Module (Sun Blade Virtualized NEM), which takes the place of embedded physical switches within the blade platform - and speeds the performance of the system, especially for enterprise applications accessing large data sets.
