Solarflare Communications demonstrated its next-generation 10GBASE-T technology at WinHEC this week in Los Angeles.

It marked the first public 10GbE virtualization demo operating with a Windows 7 virtual machine running on Hyper-V technology.

The demo is based on the new Solarflare SFN411T server adapter reference design, which combines Solarflare’s 10GBASE-T PHY and 10GbE controller technology.

The technology shows line-rate 10 Gigabits per second (Gbps) server and storage virtualization. Consuming only 10 watts of power, according to Solarfare, the SFN411T is the industry’s lowest power and greenest 10GbE server adapter.
