Blade's 1-10 Gigabit Ethernet RackSwitch

Colfax International, a provider of hardware and software for high-performance computing, has added Blade Network Technologies' 1-10 Gigabit Ethernet RackSwitch product family to its product portfolio. Colfax International has joined Blade's RackSwitch solution partner programme.

The RackSwitch networking solutions for data centre environments add network intelligence to blade and top-of-rack servers, while enhancing performance and providing high availability, scalability, manageability and security to the data centre environment. RackSwitch products reduce the total cost of ownership of data centre infrastructures, overcome network overload and enable scale-out data centre economies. Data centre architects can standardise on a unified and affordable rack-level network infrastructure to provision and scale out cloud computing environments, high-performance clusters and virtualised data centres.
