Chelsio supports OPEN FCoE



Sunnyvale, California – February 10, 2010 – Chelsio Communications, Inc., the leading provider of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) networking and storage solutions, today announced its full line of 10Gb Unified Wire Ethernet adapters now supports Open FCoE (Fibre Channel over Ethernet).

By ensuring support of Open FCoE, Chelsio is enabling IT managers to use their existing Ethernet infrastructure to connect servers to Fibre Channel SANs without the need to use FC adapters.

“Open FCoE is another way for IT managers to leverage their current capital investment to bring Fibre Channel onto their Ethernet networks,” said Kianoosh Naghshineh, president and CEO of Chelsio. “As the standards get ratified and the entire FCoE ecosystem slowly ramps into existence over the next few years, IT managers can enjoy some of the benefits of the single unified network without the need for the early investment.”
