Myri-10 Network Adapters
With low latency, high bandwidth, and low CPU overhead, Myri-10G network adapters enable extreme performance ethernet and are the platform for Myricom's specialized software solutions.

Myri-10G 10-Gigabit Ethernet Solutions
Linux, Windows, Solaris, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, and VMware ESX

For standard TCP/IP and UDP/IP 10-Gigabit Ethernet applications, Myri-10G network adapters and software deliver excellent performance at low cost, and are fully compliant with Ethernet standards. Offloads in the driver and Network Adapter firmware provide low host-CPU load even at near-wire-speed throughput rates.
Firmware
The driver and Network Adapter firmware for 10-Gigabit Ethernet operation is currently available for Linux, Windows, Solaris 10, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, and VMware ESX.
The driver was contributed to and accepted in the Linux kernel, and is included in the 2.6.18 and later kernels and in many Linux distributions.
However, the driver available by download will be more up-to-date.
The driver is also included in FreeBSD 7.0. The Windows software distributions are WHQL-certified

Form factors
All of the one-port and most of the two-port Myri-10G network adapters are available as low-profile (half-height) PCI Express add-in cards. Low-profile cards allow the option of installation in some 2U servers without the need for a riser card. Myri-10G network adapters include standard and low-profile faceplates where applicable.
10-Gigabit Ethernet Network Adapter vendors are ambiguous about the capabilities of dual-port network adapters. Myri-10G network adapters with two network ports are always listed as either:
Two ports for failover
These network adapters appear to the host operating system as one PCI device. The failover between network ports is handled by the Network Adapter firmware with a response time that can be set to as little as ~10┬Ás. Either port can operate at near wire speed, but not both at the same time. The performance listed above is representative of the active port.
Two ports for performanc
These network adapters appear to the host operating system as two PCI devices. In hosts with sufficient PCI Express and memory bandwidth, both ports can operate concurrently at near wire speed. These network adapters can be regarded as two independent network devices, and the performance listed above can be achieved concurrently on both ports. Of course, the two ports can also be used for failover.
IBM Blade
Myricom also produces Myri-10G network adapters in other form factors, including High Speed Expansion Cards (HSECs) for the IBM BladeCenter

Ethernet interoperability
Has been demonstrated with 10-Gigabit Ethernet switches from Myricom, Brocade (Foundry), Extreme, Fujitsu, HP, Quadrics, SMC, Force10, Cisco, Blade Network, Broadcom, and Arista.

PCI Express interoperability
Has been verified with all of the common PCI Express chipsets and many commercially available motherboards.
