SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 23 -- Chelsio Communications, a leading provider of 10Gb Ethernet Unified Wire adapters, ASICs and unified storage solutions, today announced the release of Unified Storage Server (USS) 2.1 software, adding new features that enable more than one million IOPS performance with new levels of reliability and scalability for low cost Ethernet storage in enterprise data centers and cloud computing installations.
Among the new features included in USS 2.1 are high availability (HA), iSCSI scalability, and live migration for storage networks. Together with fully integrated support for Chelsio T4 Unified Wire 10Gb Ethernet adapters, Chelsio is delivering a highly scalable and reliable storage solution with far greater performance and lower costs than comparable Fibre Channel solutions.
For example, hybrid cloud service provider Vivavo (www.vivavo.net) is deploying Chelsio USS 2.1 to create a single HA head that scales to 0.5 Petabyte (500 Terabytes) installation with high performance, ease of use and integration. “Chelsio’s USS software has proven to be a tremendous asset to enabling high performance, scalability and high reliability for storage clouds,” said Francis Au, executive director of Vivavo. “The combination of USS and the T4 adapters is a powerful, scalable solution for our cloud storage applications.”
The new features of USS 2.1 include:
The feature-rich USS software supports iSCSI target, CIFS, NFS, FTP, HTTP, Thin Provisioning volumes, Volume cloning, snapshots, instant restore from snapshots, volume encryption and replication compression. A single-seat USS 2.1 license is US List priced at $5,168. For more information on USS 2.1, visit the Chelsio USS Software product page.
Ideal for all data, storage and high performance clustering applications, Chelsio Unified Wire adapters enable a unified fabric over a single wire by simultaneously running all unmodified IP sockets, Fibre Channel and InfiniBand applications over Ethernet at line rate. Designed for deployment in virtualized data centers, cloud service installations and high performance computing environments, these Chelsio adapters bring a new level of performance metrics and functional capabilities to the networking space.

The world's largest supercomputers, like Tianhe-2, are great at traditional, compute-intensive HPC workloads, such as simulating atomic decay or modeling tornados. But data-intensive applications--such as mining big data sets for connections--is a different sort of workload, and runs best on a different sort of computer.

The advent of low-power mobile processors and cloud delivery models is changing the economics of computing. But just as an economy car is good at different things than a full size truck, an HPC workload still has certain computing demands that neither the fastest smartphone nor the most elastic cloud cluster can fulfill.
