Solarflare Targets Wall Street With New Product

Irvine-based Solarflare, the developer of 10GbE networking adapters, is sharpening its focus on the financial industry, saying Wednesday that it has launched a new product aimed specifically at the high frequency trading network market. Solarflare said its newest, low-latency 10GbE server adapter includes clock and timing functions which are a "thousand times more precise" than other network time products. The firm said that the adapter is aimed at better auditing, monitoring, and analysis of high frequency trading networks, without the need for expensive, dedicated timing hardware. Solarflare has been focusing in on high speed financial networks, since selling off its PHY business earlier this year.
