By leveraging Data Center Bridging and support for software iSCSI initiators ThunderLink 10GbE desklinks offer the ability to support both local and storage area networks and driver support for Mac® OS X 10.6.8 or higher (Windows® and Linux when Thunderbolt systems become available), providing a single connectivity solution for customers with heterogeneous operating system environments.
ThunderLink 10GbE, with support for link aggregation and failover, offer redundancy and high availability for critical network applications. With 10Gb/s data transfer rates and multiple offloads (TCP, IPv4, UDP), Ethernet desklinks are the premier connectivity choice for bandwidth-intensive applications such as data back-up and restoration, clustered computing, IP content delivery, medical imaging, and video rendering. With multi-core processors driving the need for higher bandwidth, ThunderLink 10GbE delivers superior throughput to meet that need.
