SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Where the crunching of Big Data, converged storage and ultra-fast computing intersect with the network, Extreme Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR) provides market leading Ethernet switching solutions addressing the ultra-high speed, energy efficiency and latency needs High Performance Cluster Computing (HPCC). The company this week is showing its recently tested BlackDiamond® X8 switch at SC/11, the leading supercomputing event.

Extreme Networks BlackDiamond X8 core switch, featuring 768 non-blocking 10GbE ports in a 1/3 rack, was recently tested by the Lippis Report to have the lowest latency (at 2.3 microseconds average on 64 bit frames) of any core switch tested and proved to be 3-10X faster than other core switches.

At SC/11, held in Seattle this week, Extreme Networks (booth #5712) is discussing how its 10/40GbE Open Fabric switching network solutions, the BlackDiamond X8 and Summit® X670 switches, featuring the ExtremeXOS® modular operating system, meet the needs of HPCC and emerging Big Data Hadoop clusters.

Extreme Networks has installed its high performance switches with prestigious research, industry and government facilities globally, highlighted by the ESRF Synchrotron Facility, the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE), CEA Saclay and PetroChina.

To boost the performance, availability and application requirements of HPCC, Extreme Networks BlackDiamond X8 and Summit X670 Fabric switches offer improved performance and cost benefits for HPC interconnect due to their non-blocking, lossless architecture, ultra-low latency switching, and adherence to open standards. This is combined with the intelligence and automation offered by ExtremeXOS, spanning the company's complete switching portfolio.
