VirtenSys Inc. VIO 4000 Series I/O Virtualization (IOV) Switch
The VIO 4000 IOV switch provides up to 40 Gbps of bandwidth to each server, and appears as a physical I/O adapter to conventional or virtualized environments without requiring any changes to current software, firmware, physical connections or management tools. The VirtenSys IOV switch received the highest overall innovation marks from our judges in the storage networking equipment category.
Administrators can use a command-line interface or the Web-based GUI to dynamically configure and change I/O bandwidth based on workloads, service-level agreements or other criteria without any physical changes. With server and storage virtualization well entrenched, VirtenSys is one of a handful of companies now offering the benefits of virtualization for storage network infrastructures.
