Tarari Showcasing Market-Leading T10 Technology on 10Gbps Security and Web 2.0/XML Platforms at the Intel Developer Forum Fall 2007

First Public Demonstration of Tarari T10 Technology Deep Content Inspection Silicon on Intel® Xeon Platform Supporting Intel® QuickAssist Technology

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - September 18, 2007) - Tarari Inc., the leader in deep content inspection, today announces that they will be showcasing their T10 Technology on Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® (E5355) platform and participating in the "Accelerators Industry Panel" at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) at the Moscone Center West in San Francisco. On September 19, 2007, at 1:30pm Tarari's Vice President of Engineering, CTO and co-founder, Jeff Carmichael will discuss in this panel Tarari's achievements in the accelerator segment, its latest improvements and the industry trends that are driving future developments.

As the performance of Enterprise and Service Provider networks continue to increase, a single-chip, low power silicon solution that can scale to 10Gbps and beyond without needing expensive exotic add-on memory is already winning praise from the analyst community.

To see Tarari T10 Technology running deep packet inspection tasks on a leading-edge Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor platform, visit Tarari at booth 451, which is part of the I/O and Application Acceleration Community area in the Intel Technology Showcase from Tuesday, September 18 through Thursday, September 20, 2007.

"Our T10 Technology silicon is an ideal complement to powerful general purpose processors like the Intel Xeon for high end multi-gigabit security appliances, switches and routers," said Randy Smerik, President/CEO and co-Founder of Tarari, Inc. "Intel's Geneseo and QuickAssist programs make it easier for us to offload and accelerate deep packet inspection tasks so that we can free up more of the powerful Xeon cores to do other tasks."

Developers can immediately start building their designs using Tarari's silicon since Tarari supports a standard API across all of its software and silicon products. Tarari's Development kits enable customers to develop cost-effective, leading-edge systems with enhanced functionality, proven interoperability and improved time-to-market.

Tarari Content Processors provide a scalable and comprehensive content inspection silicon solution with a common application programming interface (API) that is equally applicable to systems running PCI, PCI-X and PCIe interfaces. Tarari's T10 technology can be incorporated into single chip designs all the way from 100 Megabits per Second (Mbps) to over 10 Gigabits per second (Gbps).

Tarari's family of Content Processors feature the ability to concurrently support virus, intrusion, spam and compliance signatures -- while sustaining high line rates and are ideally suited for applications such as Unified Threat Management (UTM) appliances, intrusion prevention systems (IPS), content-based routing (CBR) and switching, application firewalls and security gateways, web acceleration, application networking, content filtering, anti-virus, and regulatory compliance.

Intel® QuickAssist Technology

Tarari also announced its support for Intel QuickAssist Technology initiative. Tarari supports the broad market accelerator attach strategy of Intel using PCI-Express® and I/O technologies that are available today and in the future. This advanced coupling between the CPU and accelerators delivers higher bandwidths, lower latency, reduced power consumption and minimized transaction overheads for acceleration devices.

"We are looking forward to collaborating with Tarari and showing our three joint demonstrations at this week's Intel Developer Forum, showcasing high-performance Security, XML processing and digital media encoding on both server and workstation class platforms," said Anthony Neal-Graves, General Manager, Marketing and Technology Solutions, Intel Corporation. "These solutions provide tight coupling and proven interoperability between Quad-Core Intel Xeon processors and Tarari's family of Content Processors and will enable OEMs to benefit from enhanced performance and improved time-to-market for a wide variety of applications."

Tarari recently signed a definitive agreement with LSI Corporation (NYSE: LSI) to acquire Tarari, Inc. The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
