Six vendors complete test event to become part of OpenFabrics Alliance Interoperability Logo Programme

16 Sep 2013 Austin - The OpenFabrics Alliance (OFA) has issued the results from its 15th Interoperability Logo test event held May 2013 at the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Lab (UNH-IOL) in Durham, New Hampshire and led by the OFA Interoperability Working Group (IWG). Six vendors participated and completed the required Interoperability Logo Programme (OFILP) tests and earned the ability to use the coveted OFA/IOL tested logo for their products.

The six vendors that participated in the most recent test event and that are now included on the OFA logo list are:

  • Chelsio
  • DataDirect Networks
  • IBM
  • Intel
  • Mellanox
  • NetApp

"Seamless interoperability is a hallmark of products that are ready for mass deployment, and I congratulate the six vendors who completed the rigorous testing to earn a spot on the OFA logo list", stated Jim Ryan, chairman, OFA. "A healthy ecosystem enables end users with the choice of multi-vendor products that suit their individual needs."

The interoperability test plan and detailed logo list can be accessed at the following sites:

The OFA Interoperability Logo Programme ensures that the products bearing the OFA Logo have passed the required interoperability testing and work with the latest OpenFabrics Enterprise Distribution (OFED) releases while interoperating with competitive products. Vendors who participate in the OFA logo programme and operate with OFED enjoy the following benefits:

  • Validation that a device is compatible with OFA software components
  • Meets the transport independent characteristics of the OFA architecture and API
  • Interoperates with products from other vendors that also use OFED

The OFA will host its 14th Interoperability Debug Event at the UNH-IOL during the week of October 14-18, 2013.

For more information on the OFILP or if you are interested in becoming an OFA Logo Group (OFILG) member, you can visit the OFA Web site.
