Wind River Launches Network Acceleration Product for Storage Networks

Wind River Systems, Inc. today announced beta availability of Tornado(R) for Intelligent Network Acceleration (TINA), which, according to Wind River, allows original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to deliver dramatic performance improvements in their server and storage devices.

By offloading network traffic to an intelligent network interface card (iNIC), TINA increases throughput rates in servers, and brings high performance to storage area networks (SANs) migrating from Fibre Channel to IP and Ethernet environments.

"Servers are able to meet networking performance demands while sparing precious CPU cycles for applications, all in a very cost efficient manner," said Dave Fraser, vice president and general manager of Wind River's Networks business unit.
