Bristol, UK, May 9, 2012. Gnodal Limited, a network company delivering cutting edge Ethernet Switch technology solutions, today at Interop, announced the launch of the GS0072, the latest and biggest addition to the industry leading GS-Series with 72 ports of 40 GbE built into a sleek 2RU form factor. The GS0072 was recently awarded Best of Interop in the Networking Category this week in Las Vegas.
Gnodal’s adaptive switching technology is derived from a custom made ASIC and the GS0072 is the first multi-ASIC product from Gnodal. Consolidating the Gnodal Fabric has allowed Gnodal to have the highest port count of any 2RU switch. Such a high density switch not only means a small footprint in the data center, it also delivers benefits in terms of power consumption and efficiency, making the GS0072 a highly cost-effective alternative to more complex chassis-based solutions.
The GS0072 is an order of magnitude faster than most competitive switches with congestion management and dynamic load-balancing, allowing the switches to operate at near 100% bandwidth utilization (throughput). The GS0072 is targeted at Cloud and Big Data environments where 10GbE edge connectivity is required to accommodate very large numbers of virtual clients as well as High Performance Computing applications that may require native 40 Gbps capability to achieve extreme scalability and throughput.
This new switch from Gnodal delivers impressive performance results and could create real opportunities in the virtualization and low latency space for high performance computing and grid solutions, particular in terms of throughput and removing bottlenecks.
