Chelsio Delivers Unified Manager 2.0 Software

Unified Manager 2.0 Software Adds Management of all T4 Adapters, USR Appliance and USS Software Across Linux, Mac, Solaris, VMWare and Windows Environments

SUNNYVALE, CA – Jan. 24, 2012 – Chelsio Communications, a leading provider of 10Gb Ethernet Unified Wire Adapters, ASICs and Unified Storage solutions, today announced the availability of  Unified Manager (UM) 2.0, software that centrally manages all Chelsio network adapter cards, Unified Storage Router (USR) appliances, and Unified Storage Server (USS) software across Linux, Mac, Solaris, VMWare, and Windows environments.

In addition to supporting Chelsio T4 Unified Wire adapters and the USR and USS solutions, UM 2.0 greatly simplifies operations by allowing driver installation and maintenance across multiple nodes and also enabling customers to manage their Chelsio Unified Wire adapters via mobile devices such as iPADs, Kindle Fire, Android, Blackberries and iPhones, etc.  UM 2.0 also extends OS support to Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Suse Linux Enterprise Server, Mac OS, Oracle Solaris 10, VMWare and Windows.

UM 2.0 further reduces operational costs with new built-in tools and guides.  With its intuitive, easy to navigate user interface, the Unified Manager software enables users to manage all their Chelsio Unified Wire adapters, USR appliances and USS in one window, from anywhere, centralizing the management of networking and storage (SAN or NAS) environments.   Among the new feature enhancements added into UM 2.0 are remote bulk driver installation, boot management, network discovery, automatic alerts, event notification, FCoE support, statistics gathering, managing access controls, and bandwidth management of flows.  While it minimizes operational costs through centralized control, UM 2.0 easily scales to support small and large deployments.

“The Unified Manager software has proved to be a very successful administrative tool for our Chelsio customers, enabling them to minimize their operational costs with centralized control,” said Gautam Shah, president of Colfax International (Sunnyvale, CA).  “UM 2.0 has a lot of added flexibility, bringing a host of new features for a wide range of operating systems and including new mobility capabilities that our customers should find extremely useful.”
