Excelero announced its NVMesh server SAN software completed validation on the NetXtreme BCM57414, Broadcom’s 25/50Gb Ethernet network interface card (NIC). "This is a pioneering development in integrating silicon and software that enterprises need to expedite the deployment of NVMe over Fabrics," said Ryan Quick, CEO and chief architect at Providentia Worldwide, an enterprise hyperscale computing consultancy. "As alternatives to the PCIe bus emerge that are better for scale-out use, Broadcom and Excelero are key players to watch in an important and fast-changing market." All the details are HERE.
Recent research from the Dell’Oro Group illustrates what we can expect in Wireless LAN in upcoming years. Most notably, the expectation that through 2021 average prices will rise with user adoption of cloud subscription licenses and new technologies. “The trend is clear—users are willing to pay a premium for higher-performance Wi-Fi experience,” said Trent Dell’Oro, Business Analyst at Dell’Oro Group.
