Cisco launches new virtual interface card
Cisco has announced a new card able to consolidate network adapters to much higher capabilities, as well as confirming availability of its new rack mounted servers.
Cisco is making more noise in the unified computing systems (UCS) with the launch of its virtual interface card.
The card, designed to be added into its UCS B-Series blade servers, aims to consolidate network adapters whilst increasing the capability in a virtualised environment.
The virtualised adapters can take up to 128 Ethernet or Fibre Channel connections and can work within both single operating system servers and virtualised machines.
The card will be available from December this year starting at $799 (505).
On top of this new technology announcement the networking giant also confirmed the availability and pricing of its new C-series rack mounted servers.
First off is the UCS C200, designed as a high density server, which will be available in November 2009 starting at $2,589.
The second is a general purpose rack mount server called the UCS C210 also available in November and starting at $3,039.
Finally comes the UCS C250 designed as a high-performance, memory-intensive server for virtualised and large workloads. This will be available in December this year, starting at $10,339.
