    Solution Delivers More Than 50 Percent Less Latency than Industry Standard 10Gb Ethernet Network

    SUPERCOMPUTING, SALT LAKE CITY, and COSTA MESA, Calif., November 13, 2012 – Emulex Corporation (NYSE:ELX) today announced a partnership with Gnodal, an Ethernet network switch provider, to deliver a solution that eliminates network congestion and latency, addressing the needs of high frequency trading (HFT) environments. The Emulex OneConnect® 10Gb Ethernet (10GbE) Network Xceleration™ (NX) OCe12000-D adapters, with FastStack™ DBL software, powered by Myricom, and a Gnodal GS4008 10GbE switch, enables lower latency (in User Datagram Protocol [UDP] testing) by as much as 57 percent, and in Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) testing , by 47 percent, when compared to a standard 10GbE switch.

    “Network congestion avoidance is a key issue in today’s cloud-based world. However, it is especially prevalent for latency-sensitive traders dealing in HFT, where milliseconds of reaction time can mean the difference between a buy or a sell for a trader,” said Shaun Walsh, senior vice president of marketing and corporate development, Emulex. “Recent Emulex Labs testing revealed that the Emulex/Gnodal solution reduces this latency by about half, unlocking faster transactional performance, which is crucial to the HFT market and any transaction-intensive environment.”

    The Emulex OCe 12000 combined with FastStack DBL software delivers industry-leading performance by accelerating UDP and TCP communication in HFT environments over industry-standard 10GbE network and IP protocols, and features:

    • Low Latency Performance: FastStack DBL kernel bypass operation delivers super low latency performance and high bandwidth, enabling faster transactional performance in HFT environments.
    • Transparent Acceleration: Superior performance combined with ease of integration, accelerates existing Linux and Windows sockets applications without software modifications.
    • Flexible Architecture: FastStack DBL combined with FastStack Sniffer 10G with lossless packet capture, creates a complete HFT platform, achieving superior financial transaction performance, and the enablement to support fine-tuning the decision models and algorithms that power their HFT trading software.
    • Platform Support: Optimized for use on Linux and Windows operating system platforms.

    “The Emulex FastStack DBL network acceleration software is an ideal complement to Gnodal switches, which are purpose-built for high performance computing (HPC) environments, while achieving ultra-low latency processing, even among multi-switch deployments that leverage a Gnodal fabric solution,” said Atchison Frazer, CMO, Gnodal. “For automated trading systems, low latency performance has a direct correlation to how fast trades can be executed and we’re confident the Emulex/Gnodal offering is the ideal solution to address the needs of this demanding market.”

    Emulex and Gnodal will be demonstrating this solution at Supercomputing this week, November 12 – 15, in Salt Lake City, in booth #632.
