A producer of software and intellectual property (IP) for the semiconductors industry is preparing for infrastructure upgrades by installing input-output (IO) virtualisation equipment from Virtensys.
Synopsys designs IP for use by manufacturers of semiconductors in the on-chip design process.
By utilising IO virtualisation from Virtensys, it is catering for upgrades without the need to retrospectively make changes to the installed equipment in its data centre.
Hasmukh Ranjan, vice-president of IT at Synopsys, says: "Virtensys IO virtualisation systems show good capabilities as we upgrade our infrastructure.
"We were impressed to see that deploying the VIO-4001 did not require any changes to our existing environment."
The VIO-4001 is designed to virtualise and consolidate connectivity of servers to wide area and storage area networks.
It carries performance reaching a potential 80 Gbps with 16 server ports, while its sibling product the VIO-4008 accepts eight hot-pluggable SAS/SATA drives and provides shareable storage with RAID redundancy.
