Oct. 17, 2006
— Intel Corporation announced today that it will
encourage networking companies to benefit from a key server data input
and output acceleration technology designed and added to its server
product lines earlier this year.

A component of Intel I/OAT (Input/Output
Acceleration Technology), Intel QuickData technology is a data
acceleration engine that enables other networking and server vendors to
increase the throughput of server data traffic. Key supporters of Intel
QuickData Technology include Broadcom, Fujitsu-Siemens, IBM, Mellanox,
Microsoft and VMware.

Introduced as part of I/OAT with the
Intel Xeon 5100 series processor-based platforms earlier this year, the
DMA (Direct Memory Access) engine in Intel's server and workstation
platform chipsets are the foundation of Intel QuickData Technology.
I/OAT is already supported by a broad range of server vendors including
IBM, Hitachi, NEC, Toshiba, Acer, Lenovo, Samsung, Supermicro and Tyan.
Intel QuickData Technology will extend that support to a broad range of
device manufacturers moving forward.
