Storage: Emulex silicon will have iSCSI, TOE, FCoE, RDMA & iWarp in a single chip

Compellent – the billion-dollar storage company? • The Register: “It seems that both Emulex and QLogic are possible sources of this technology, QK+Logic iSCSI and FC cards being shipped by Compellent currently. Emulex points out that its Gen 2 converged network adapter (CNA) card will be half the size of the Gen 1 card and include iSCSI, TCP/IP offload, FCoE, 10gigE, RDMA, and iWARP – think host clustering – in its single ASIC. The company expects that the equivalent QLogic product will only have FCoE and 10gigE. Emulex can offer, it says, better use of server and controller ports.”

Anyone know if Emulex has made an announcement on this ? I’d like to know more.
