Demartek Evaluates Chelsio Dual Port 40 GbE Unified Wire Adapter

GOLDEN, CO--(Marketwired - November 01, 2016) - Demartek, an independent computer industry analyst firm with its own computer test lab, announces that it has evaluated the iSCSI offload performance of the Chelsio T580-CR Dual Port 40 GbE Unified Wire Adapter.

"For application servers using iSCSI storage systems, deploying an iSCSI offload adapter can reduce host CPU utilization while maintaining excellent performance," said Dennis Martin, Demartek President. "In our tests, the Chelsio T580-CR iSCSI adapter significantly outperformed the native iSCSI software initiator in our synthetic and real-world application tests, for IOPS, throughput and latency."

"Our T5 and T6 line of 10/25/40/50/100 GbE Unified Wire adapters have been optimized for a number of offload functions, including iSCSI," said Kianoosh Naghshineh, CEO at Chelsio Communications. "As organizations adopt higher speed servers and storage, our adapters are an ideal choice to realize the full potential of iSCSI flash storage."

This Demartek evaluation is available at and in the Demartek iSCSI Zone on the Demartek web site.

Additional information on Ethernet and iSCSI technology is available on the Demartek Storage Interface Comparison page.
