Tarari Taps Into IBM BladeCenter

San Diego-based Tarari said today that it is teaming with IBM to combine Tarari's Encoder Accelerator for Windows Media and IBM's eServer BladeCenter platform. Tarari's hardware platform will be used to accelerate encoding of Windows Media content running on an IBM BladeCenter platform. Tarari's Encoder Accelerator device offloads Microsoft Windows Media encoding applications, and integrates into any BladeCenter HS20 or IBM IntelliStations workstations. Tarari's Encoder Accelerator for Windows Media is a PCI-bus card that installs in any Windows XP server. Tarari offers silicon-based acceleration devices for XML, network security, and digital media. Tarari is backed by Crosspoint, Intel, Miramar Venture Partners, Morgan Stanley, and XMLFund.
