"Economic conditions have changed the operating landscape for government and educational organizations. Modern, converged networks utilize advanced optical and Ethernet technologies to form a highly flexible and scalable infrastructure capable of delivering many emerging applications and ready to scale far into the future. Additional benefits of building better networks for state and local governments include:
>Better public service at lower taxpayer cost
>Support for emerging applications
in transportation, public safety,
healthcare, and education
>A graceful technology
migration from legacy to
> Preparation for future, unplanned

Solarflare’s creation of a ‘virtualization aware’ smart network adapter and modified Xen will allow direct, but safe, access to such adapters from guest operating systems in order to improve network performance.
The Tolly Group’s hands-on evaluation of BLADE’s RackSwitch G8100, based on a FocalPoint FM4224 low-latency 10GbE switch chip from Fulcrum Microsystems, demonstrates that the device offers non-blocking 10GbE switching, far lower latency and less energy consumption than the Catalyst 4900M.
This document describes enterprise virtualization today and the anticipated uses of this technology, particularly leveraging the capabilities provided by widespread adoption of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) as a single, converged network fabric.
This Technology Brief is divided into two parts. The first part discusses the evolution of Ethernet, and then focuses on 10 Gigabit Ethernet and related transceiver and cabling technologies. The second part examines BLADE’s RackSwitch product line, including 10 GbE applications within enterprise networks and data centers.
