iWARP Brings Low-Latency Fabric Technology to Ethernet

By Ethernet Alliance

In November 2009, the Ethernet Alliance announced a focused group effort inside the Ethernet in the Data Center subcommittee to support market development for the iWARP technology.  As a technology, iWARP is becoming mature with multiple vendors developing and shipping iWARP adapters – known as rNICs – and with production operating system support from Linux and Microsoft.  The University of New Hampshire Interoperability Lab (UNH-IOL) has established an iWARP Consortium to assist vendors in testing for iWARP compliance and interoperability.
