(The Hosting News) – eRacks today announces the availability of 10 gigabit ethernet (10GbE) across the board on its entire line of enterprise-grade servers, available in three flavors: CX4, RJ-45 (both copper) or SFP+ (fiber optic.)
Previously, mainstream servers were limited to 1 gbps of bandwidth per network adapter, forcing systems administrators to resort to the cumbersome procedure of bonding NICs when more bandwidth was required. Now, eRacks offers 10x that performance, all through a single port.
eRacks offers a host of choices when deciding on a 10GbE solution. Those who require only short range connections are free to choose from CX4 or the fiber optic interface SFP+, and will most likely want SFP+ when a low-power low-latency connection is desired. Conversely, those who require up to 100m of cabling will want to explore the RJ-45 option.
10GbE is crucial for any system that needs to move large amounts of data back and forth across a network. 10GbE makes a great foundation for network attached storage, for example, and works exceptionally well with technologies such as iSCSI. 10GbE is also highly useful for the rendering of high definition audio and video across a network and can easily find a home in any studio.
Now is an ideal time to invest in 10GbE, as costs are finally coming down and adoption is becoming much more common.
