IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 5 -- Solarflare, a leader in application-intelligent 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) networking software and hardware, today announced the results of the Dell'Oro Group's Q2 Report on the 10GbE server adapter market. Serving as the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, the Dell'Oro report ranks Solarflare as the fastest-growing company in its marketplace. The report shows Solarflare's year-over-year (Q2 2011 to Q2 2012) revenue is up significantly at 89 percent, with unit growth climbing strongly at 111 percent.
Although Q2 2012 market performance experienced a five percent decline in units shipped, Solarflare outperformed the market by boasting a remarkable 65 percent quarterly increase in unit growth.
Despite four percent quarterly revenue growth in the market, Solarflare demonstrated significant momentum in the 10GbE server adapter industry by recording a 38 percent increase in revenue for Q2 2012. Solarflare's industry-leading technology breakthroughs have driven this substantial increase in revenue that easily eclipsed modest market growth.
In addition to successful growth of its core 10GbE server adapter business, Solarflare has continued to demonstrate industry leadership with the introduction of the revolutionary ApplicationOnload™ Engine (AOE). The AOE continues to lead the market in technology innovation, which positions Solarflare for continued growth in multiple market segments, including financial services, digital media, internet security, homeland security and others.
"Solarflare has enjoyed incredible momentum over the past year, due to both the technology leadership of our high-performance, low-latency server adapters, as well as the introduction of our ApplicationOnload Engine, which puts Solarflare at the front end of Customized Compute," said Russell Stern, president and chief executive officer at Solarflare. "Customized Compute revolutionizes the way networks process data, overcoming performance obstacles that can't be solved by simply adding more processors. This breakthrough technology impacts several market segments, including financial services, government security, digital media processing, oil and gas analysis, and many others."
10GbE delivers a nominal data rate of ten billion bits per second and is ten times faster than gigabit Ethernet. These performance levels are ideal for the most demanding, latency-sensitive applications in environments requiring the highest message rates. Solarflare is witnessing a growing demand for their high-performance products in the financial services, social media, security, scientific and entertainment sectors where massive amounts of data must be processed in nanoseconds.

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.
