Expanded Engineering Team Will Accelerate Application Development, Speed Delivery of New Products and Expand Global Footprint

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - May 5, 2014) - Solarflare, the leader in application-intelligent networking software and hardware, today announced the company has expanded its global research and development capabilities, opening a new Solarflare R&D facility in New Delhi, India. Headed by Vice President Engineering Andre Chartrand and led in New Delhi by VP India Engineering Prosit Mukherjee, the highly experienced India engineering team will contribute to the continued development of network applications that run on Solarflare's industry-leading hardware platforms.

Working in concert with engineering groups at the company's Irvine, CA, USA headquarters and at extensive R&D facilities in Cambridge, UK, the Solarflare New Delhi team will be concentrating their efforts on RTL programming as well as FPGA and software development. "Prosit's team brings a wealth of expertise and experience to Solarflare's development efforts," said Chartrand. "We expect them to have a substantial impact on the company's ability to deliver next-generation technology."

"We're seeing a dramatic increase in worldwide demand for our network applications and associated hardware platforms, so it has become critical for the company to accelerate the development of advanced technologies and speed the delivery of new products into the marketplace," said Russell Stern, CEO of Solarflare. "We have shared our product roadmap with over 1,000 existing customers worldwide -- as well as many new, prospective customers -- which in turn has created a lot of pent up demand for new software and hardware, especially our latest network monitoring/security solutions and Flareon™ 40GbE server adapters. With the addition of our talented team in New Delhi, Solarflare will be in a much better position to respond in a timely fashion to this dramatic increase in interest and demand."
