New network virtualization technology from Broadcom

Bangalore, September 7, 2012 : Global leader in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, Broadcom Corporation has launched new Network Virtualization (NV) technology in India,  which promises to improve server performance by more than 55 percent.

When coupled with Broadcom’s new StrataXGS Trident II Switch Series, its NetXtreme II server NV acceleration technology now provides an for VXLAN implementations, end-to-end platform solution for VXLAN cloud-scale networks, says a company release.

Virtualized cloud-scale networks with multiple tenants are growing at unprecedented rates while exceeding the limits of existing network architectures. VXLAN innovation addresses this need by decoupling the physical and logical address space through the creation of overlay networks. Through VMware’s collaboration with Broadcom and other leading ecosystem vendors, VXLANs are expected to become the default standard for multi-tenant cloud-scale networks. Broadcom’s announcement is accompanied this week with offerings from HP and Dell, which exploit the new NetExtreme solution.
