Dolphin Express solution, comprising PCI Express based hardware and accompanying software, is an industry first solution for seamlessly integrating IO and clustering capabilities onto an enhanced PCI Express interconnect. This eliminates the need for two separate interconnects - one for IO and the other for clustering. Dolphin Express components enable IO expansion in a singlehost platform and provide clustering as well as IO expansion support in a multi-host platform. The hardware component of the Dolphin Express solution consists of a (i) host adapter (ii) cluster switch (iii) cluster/IO expansion switch. The software component provides the critical infrastructure for allowing legacy appli..
