Everything over 10G Ethernet: Aquantia, Arista, Dell, Dell’Oro and Intel Debate Convergence in the Data Center at Interop Las Vegas 2010

Aquantia, the leading developer of mainstream 10GBASE-T PHY solutions, announced today that it will be joined by principals at Arista Networks, Dell, Dell’Oro Group and Intel to discuss networking convergence in the enterprise Data Center at the Interop Las Vegas conference on Wednesday, April 28, 2010 at 1:15pm (Room: Mandalay Bay K).

This panel brings together prime movers and influencers in data center server, switch and convergence technologies, to review the rise of 10 Gigabit Ethernet and LAN on Motherboard in the data center. They will debate the impact of ‘everything over 10GbE’, unified networks and interconnect advances on virtualization, storage networks, cost control and performance optimization. From the trends, the track record and future roadmaps they will debate whether the market now has the critical mass for convergence over 10GbE.

Seamus Crehan, vice president of network adapters and SAN market research with Dell’Oro Group, will moderate the panel. The following leaders will present, debate and answer audience questions:

The ‘Everything over 10G Ethernet’ panel is free to all Interop conference attendees. Aquantia will also exhibit its 10GBASE-T PHY solutions at booth 2525 on the Interop Show Floor.

“We expect to see very strong 10 Gigabit Ethernet growth over the coming years, with connections approximately doubling for the majority of our long-range forecast period,” said panel moderator Seamus Crehan, vice president at Dell’Oro Group. “Furthermore, we anticipate that 10GBASE-T will become a key driver of this robust growth, especially as it gets deployed directly on server motherboards,” Crehan added.

“From now on, the momentum toward 10GbE in the Data Center is virtually unstoppable,” said panelist Anshul Sadana of Arista Networks. “We also project that in the next few years, 10GBASE-T will be the de-facto server interconnect in the Data Center. This is the other critical part of the convergence story and will accelerate mainstream deployments of 10GbE.”

Since 1988, the worldwide Interop conferences have been the preeminent industry events for showcasing the adoption of technology, providing knowledge and insight for IT and enterprise decision-makers. The 2010 event will include a strong focus on the key themes of virtualization, mobility, cloud computing and data center advances to increase networked productivity and improve collaboration.

Aquantia recently announced it entered full volume production on the AQ 1002, its flagship low-power 10GBASE-T PHY solution. This move coincides with recent moves by industry leaders in data center switching and server adapters to integrate 10GBASE-T into their mainstream architectures.
