Adaptec Inc. has launched a network accelerator card that offloads TCP/IP processing from Intel Corp.-or Advanced Micro Devices Inc.-based Linux servers. The adapter is targeted at high-performance computing applications where latency introduced by TCP/IP protocol processing creates bottlenecks. Adaptec's network accelerator is enabling genome research team to perform more tests, in some cases doubling the number of jobs and accelerating research according to Ann Pace, assistant director of the Center for Biomolecular Science and Engineering at the University of California, in Santa Cruz.
