Emulex and Gnodal Partner to Deliver Solution for High Frequency Trading Environments

Solution Delivers More Than 50 Percent Less Latency Compared to Other Industry Standard 10Gb Ethernet Networks

SALT LAKE CITY and COSTA MESA, Calif., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SUPERCOMPUTING -- Emulex Corporation (NYSE: ELX) today announced a partnership with Gnodal, a provider of high-speed 10 and 40Gb Ethernet (40GbE) network switches, to deliver a solution that eliminates network congestion and provides industry-leading low latency, addressing the needs of high frequency trading (HFT) environments. The Emulex OneConnect® 10GbE Network Xceleration™ (NX) OCe12000-D adapters, with FastStack™ DBL software, powered by Myricom, and a Gnodal GS4008 10GbE switch, enable lower latency by as much as 57 percent in User Datagram Protocol (UDP) testing, and by as much as 47 percent in Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) testing, when compared to a standard 10GbE switch.1

"Network congestion avoidance is a key issue in today's cloud-based world. However, it is especially prevalent for latency-sensitive traders dealing in HFT, where milliseconds of reaction time can mean the difference between a buy or a sell for a trader," said Shaun Walsh, senior vice president of marketing and corporate development, Emulex. "Recent Emulex Labs testing revealed that the Emulex/Gnodal solution reduces this latency by about half,1 unlocking faster transactional performance, which is crucial to the HFT market."

The Emulex OCe12000 combined with FastStack DBL software delivers industry-leading performance by accelerating UDP and TCP communication in HFT environments over industry-standard 10GbE network and IP protocols, and features:

  • Low Latency Performance: FastStack DBL kernel bypass operation delivers super low latency performance and high bandwidth, enabling faster transactional performance in HFT environments.
  • Transparent Acceleration: Superior performance combined with ease of integration, accelerates existing Linux and Windows sockets applications without software modifications.
  • Flexible Architecture: FastStack DBL combined with FastStack Sniffer10G with lossless packet capture, creates a complete HFT platform, achieving superior financial transaction performance, and the enablement to support fine-tuning the decision models and algorithms that power their HFT trading software.

"The Emulex FastStack DBL network acceleration software is an ideal complement to Gnodal switches, which are purpose-built for high performance computing (HPC) environments, while achieving ultra-low latency processing, even among multi-switch deployments that leverage a Gnodal fabric solution," said Atchison Frazer, CMO, Gnodal. "For automated trading systems, low latency performance has a direct correlation to how fast trades can be executed and we're confident the Emulex/Gnodal offering is the ideal solution to address the needs of this demanding market."

Emulex and Gnodal will be demonstrating this solution at Supercomputing this week, November 12 – 15, in Salt Lake City, in booth #632.

Emulex Safe Harbor Statement
"Safe Harbor" Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995: With the exception of historical information, the statements set forth above include forward-looking statements that involve risk and uncertainties. Emulex wishes to caution readers that a number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Those factors include among others, intellectual property claims, with or without merit, that could result in costly litigation, cause product shipment delays, require Emulex to indemnify customers, or require Emulex to enter into royalty or licensing agreements, which may or may not be available. Furthermore, Emulex has in the past obtained, and may be required in the future to obtain, licenses of technology owned by other parties. Emulex cannot be certain that the necessary licenses will be available or that they can be obtained on commercially reasonable terms. If Emulex were to fail to obtain such royalty or licensing agreements in a timely manner and on reasonable terms, Emulex's business, results of operations and financial condition could be materially adversely affected. Ongoing lawsuits, such as the action brought by Broadcom Corporation ("Broadcom"), present inherent risks, any of which could have a material adverse effect on Emulex's business, financial condition, or results of operations. Such potential risks include continuing expenses of litigation, risk of loss of patent rights and/or monetary damages, risk of injunction against the sale of products incorporating the technology in question, counterclaims, attorneys' fees, incremental costs associated with product or component redesigns, and diversion of management's attention from other business matters. With respect to the Broadcom litigation, such potential risks also include the availability of an adequate sunset period of time to make design changes, the ability to implement any design changes, the availability of customer resources to complete any re-qualification or re-testing that may be needed, the ability to maintain favorable working relationships with Emulex suppliers of serializer/deserializer (SerDes)  modules and the ability to obtain a settlement that does not put Emulex at a competitive disadvantage. In addition, the fact that the economy generally, and the technology and storage segments specifically, have been in a state of uncertainty makes it difficult to determine if past experience is a good guide to the future and makes it impossible to determine if markets will grow or shrink in the short term. The current economic downturn and the resulting disruptions in world credit and equity markets that are creating economic uncertainty for Emulex's customers and the storage networking market as a whole has, and could, continue to adversely affect Emulex's revenues and results of operations. Furthermore, the effect of any actual or potential unsolicited offers to acquire Emulex may have an adverse effect on Emulex's operations. As a result of these uncertainties, Emulex is unable to predict its future results with any accuracy. Other factors affecting these forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the following: faster than anticipated decline in the storage networking market; slower than expected growth of the storage networking market or the failure of Emulex's Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) customers to successfully incorporate Emulex products into their systems; Emulex's dependence on a limited number of customers and the effects of the loss of, decrease in or delays of orders by any such customers, or the failure of such customers to make timely payments; the emergence of new or stronger competitors as a result of consolidation movements in the market; the timing and market acceptance of Emulex products or Emulex OEM customers' new or enhanced products; costs associated with entry into new areas of the storage technology market; the variability in the level of Emulex's backlog and the variable and seasonal procurement patterns of Emulex's customers; any inadequacy of Emulex's intellectual property protection and the costs of actual or potential third-party claims of infringement and any related indemnity obligations or adverse judgments; impairment charges, including but not limited to goodwill and intangible assets; changes in tax rates or legislation; the effects of acquisitions; the effects of terrorist activities; natural disasters, such as the earthquake and resulting tsunami off the coast of Japan in March 2011 and the significant flooding in various parts of Thailand in October 2011, and any resulting disruption in Emulex's supply chain or customer purchasing patterns or any other resulting economic or political instability; the highly competitive nature of the markets for Emulex products as well as pricing pressures that may result from such competitive conditions; the effects of changes in Emulex's business model to separately charge for software; the effect of rapid migration of customers towards newer, lower cost product platforms; possible transitions from board or box level to application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) solutions for selected applications; a shift in unit product mix from higher-end to lower-end or mezzanine card products; a faster than anticipated decrease in the average unit selling prices or an increase in the manufactured cost of Emulex products; delays in product development; Emulex's reliance on third-party suppliers and subcontractors for components and assembly; Emulex's ability to attract and retain key technical personnel; Emulex's ability to benefit from research and development activities; Emulex's dependence on international sales and internationally produced products; changes in accounting standards; and the potential effects of global warming and any resulting regulatory changes on Emulex's business. These and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements are also discussed in Emulex's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its recent filings on Forms 8-K, 10-K and 10-Q. Statements in this release are based on current expectations and, except as required by law, Emulex undertakes no obligation to revise or update any forward-looking statements for any reason. All trademarks, trade names, service marks, and logos referenced herein belong to their respective companies.
