Small Tree Communications to Demo High Performance Networking Solutions for OS X at WWDC

June 6, 2005 by Joe DiBenedetto

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, June 6, 2005  During this week’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) sponsored by Apple, Small Tree Communications will demonstrate that its entire product line of high performance Intel 10 Gb, optical and multi-port gigabit Ethernet cards are compatible with Tiger 10.4 and are available for immediate delivery.

“We continue to see strong demand from the Apple user base for increased Ethernet capabilities,” stated Corky Seeber, president of Small Tree. “HD video real time work requires 10 Gb performance capabilities and our line of Ethernet cards successfully meet the demands.”

This news was met positively by Tom Swinford, general manager, LAN Access Division at Intel, who commented “The Intel PRO Network Connections provide enterprise customers;with reliable performance to meet today’s computing demands. The availability of Small Tree’s OS X drivers for the Intel PRO/10GbE and PRO/1000 Server Adapters will enable end-users to easily migrate their NICs to the latest Apple operating system for I/O intensive applications, such as image processing and video editing.”

In addition to the aforementioned demonstration, Small Tree is previewing Blaze at the WWDC Show. A new remote file sharing system designed specifically for Macs, Blaze offers users the ability to store large data files, such as uncompressed HD Video, on a fileserver rather than local to each client. Beneficial to all users sharing data, Blaze will specially be useful in those industries where significantly large data files need to be transferred between users. Currently in Alpha development, Blaze is expected to be available in the 3Q. Small Tree is working with five industry partners to target the file system’s performance and features to better serve the media space and its high performance InfiniBand customers.
