Emulex Gets IBM BladeCenter Design Win

Costa Mesa-based storage adapter firm Emulex reported this morning that the firm has scored a design win with IBM, on a adapter for IBM's BladeCenter HS22 blade servers. The firm said that it will provide its technology for a 10Gb/s Ethernet NIC for IBM, as part of the Virtual Fabric Adapter CFFh for IBM BladeCenter. Emulex had disclosed it had signed a patent cross licensing deal with IBM earlier in the week, covering the technology behind the adapter.
