Solarflare CEO Presents at Montgomery Technology Conference on High-Performance 10 Gigabit Ethernet for Low-Latency Trading

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - March 8, 2010) -  Solarflare Communications, the company pioneering 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE), will present at the Montgomery Technology Conference in the Fairmont Miramar Hotel and Bungalows, Santa Monica, CA. CEO Russell Stern will discuss networking issues facing investors at the forefront of the automated trading battlefield, where just microseconds make a difference. The race for improved speed and transaction rate along with lower latency has created the need for the deployment of 10GbE and related technologies that improve the performance of the next-generation trading systems.

Montgomery Technology Conference
Title: Network Performance Without the Pain
When: Tuesday, March 9 at 5:45pm PT
Where: Fairmont Miramar Hotel and Bungalows, Santa Monica, CA
Speaker: Russell Stern, CEO, Solarflare Communications

Stern will illustrate how organizations can achieve 50-300% performance gains in transaction rates, while reducing latency and latency jitter by an order of magnitude.

Addressing today's high-performance network demands, Solarflare's Solarstorm® SFN4112F SFP+ 10GbE server adapter is currently under trial or deployed in operational networks at numerous major banks and exchanges, and dozens of proprietary trading firms, hedge funds and alternative trading systems. For ultra-low latency, the company's 10GbE adapters use Solarflare's OpenOnload™, an open source solution for application acceleration and removing network I/O bottlenecks.

In a recent testing with Arista Networks, Solarflare's 10GbE server adapter achieved five microseconds TCP/UDP application latency while supporting the transmission of millions of messages per second. Unlike InfiniBand and iWarp, this performance was achieved on low-cost Ethernet that did not require a change in applications or the need to run new protocols on the wire to achieve optimum performance. Supported by the benchmark testing results, Solarflare's 10GbE solutions, used in conjunction with OpenOnload, deliver an unparalleled level of performance and low-power consumption.
