via PRNewswire

SUNNYVALE , Calif., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc., one of the world's leading suppliers of innovative computer products including hard disk drives, peripherals and biometric securitysolutions, today announced at Supercomputing 2006 the new XG2000 switchseries. The new XG2000 switches are the third generation of the company'sLayer 2, non-blocking, single chip 10Gb Ethernet solution.

The Fujitsu XG series' ultra-low latency switching allows IT professionals to build powerful and efficient systems with a compact form factor and a flexible network interface. Powered by the Fujitsu revolutionary 20-port,10Gb Ethernet Switch from LSI, the switches offer industry leading low latencyand are among the highest performance and most cost effective switches available in the market today. The XG2000 succeeds the popular Fujitsu XG1200 switch, which was originally released in North America in November 2005 .

"Today, we are seeing increased demand from IT professionals in high performance computing as well as enterprise and video server/storage marketsfor 10Gb Ethernet switches as a high performance technology to interconnect servers," said Vic Herring, senior director, new products group, FujitsuComputer Products of America. "As the marketplace for IP-based storage networks continues to surge, the Fujitsu XG switches are the ideal products to address the demands to build high performance and cost-efficient networks forservers and storage systems."

The new XG2000 family offers an impressively low port-to-port latency ofonly 300ns while still delivering 400Gbps non-blocking throughput performance. Featuring an extremely flexible design, the XG2000 series is available aseither a 20-port XFP optical solution, or in 16 CX4 ports with an additiona l4-ports of XFP optics, all in a compact 1U form factor. And with a variety ofXFP interfaces (CX4, SR and LR) available, IT professionals are able to selectthe option that will help them create the best network architecture for their needs.

Additional highlights of the new XG2000 series include an on-chip 3MB proprietary multi-stream buffer for full bandwidth performance, advancedsecurity features, data reliability and low power consumption. These factors, combined with the switches' ultra-low latency and high performance capabilities, make them an ideal component for: high performance computing(HPC); video server and storage, especially high-definition (HD); enterprise server and storage applications; and emerging Internet SCSI (iSCSI) and Network Attached Storage (NAS) markets.
