TIBCO Software (NASDAQ:TIBX) today announced that TIBCO Enterprise Message Service and TIBCO Rendezvous support Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) InfiniBand Server Fabric Switches (SFS).
Deploying TIBCO messaging across Cisco InfiniBand switches accelerates throughput by a factor of 4 and lowers latency as tested in key industry specific environments including automated trading, communications backbones, and service delivery networks.
"Support for Cisco high performance Server Fabric Switches is the logical choice for addressing the next leap forward in predictability and performance requirements of data distribution and transactions," said Matthew Quinn, vice president, Product Strategy, TIBCO. "Ongoing tests demonstrate that SFS is the clear hardware leader in high-performance and low latency environments. We look forward to a successful, long-term relationship with Cisco to support customer demands for communication that can reliably run at next generation 10 and 20 Gbps InfiniBand speeds."
Cisco Server Fabric Switches provide up to 288 ports of non-blocking, InfiniBand 4X that can operate in either 20-Gbps double data rate (DDR)) or 10-Gbps single data rate (SDR) mode for server and inter-switch connectivity. InfiniBand takes advantage of Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) technology greatly reducing latency, latency jitter and CPU utilization while increasing the throughput and message capacity of automated trading environments.
"Customers are experiencing increased demands on their market data infrastructure and order management systems, which in turn can impact revenue and competitiveness," said Krish Ramakrishnan, vice president and general manager, Server Virtualization Business Unit, Cisco. "By deploying TIBCO Rendezvous and TIBCO Enterprise Message Service on Cisco Server Fabric Switches customers can take advantage of very high bandwidth with ultra low latency and meet their growing demands without changing application interfaces."
