    10GbE – Are You Ready?

    Posted by Jason Blosil

    Is 10GbE coming of age? Many of us within the SNIA-ESF think so. We have co-authored a new and objective white paper on the subject, “10GbE – Comes of Age.” You can download it at http://snia.org/sites/default/files/10GbElookto40GbE_Final.pdf

    In this paper we dive deep into why we believe 2012 is the year for wide 10GbE adoption. There are numerous technical and economic justifications that will compel organizations to take advantage of the significant benefits 10GbE delivers. From virtualization and network convergence, to the general availability of LOM and 10GBASE-T there is no shortage of disruptive technologies converging to drive this protocol forward.

    This paper is the foundation for much of our activity for the rest of the year. Our 10GbE live Webcast a couple of weeks ago was very well received. In fact hundreds of people either attended the live event or have viewed it on demand. I encourage you to check it out at http://www.brighttalk.com/webcast/663/50385. We also have two more Webcasts scheduled, one on NFS in August and the other on Flash technology in September. Keep checking this blog for details.

    This paper is the result of a collaboration of industry leaders from Broadcom, Dell, Emulex, Intel, and  NetApp. We pride ourselves on keeping things “vendor-neutral.” If you’re in IT, we hope you find this cooperation refreshing. If you’re a vendor, we welcome your participation and urge you to consider joining SNIA and the ESF. Get more info on joining SNIA at http://www.snia.org/member_com/join
