with major system vendors, and its ability to deliver leading-edge
technology with the recently announced low-power,
28 nanometer generation of 10GBASE-T silicon.
“Everyone at Aquantia is honored to be named an ACE Awards ‘Company of
the Year’ finalist,” said Faraj Aalaei, president and CEO of Aquantia.

of technology who demonstrate leadership and innovation in the global
industry and shape the world we live in. These creators, and their
innovations, will be recognized at the EE Times and EDN ACE Awards
ceremony on April 1, 2014, as part of UBM Tech’s EE Live! Conference.
As wireless traffic explodes with the proliferation of ever faster
mobile devices, bottlenecks in the wired network infrastructure are
becoming more prevalent. This will create a significant opportunity not
seen since the last infrastructure upgrade that lead the transition from
Fast Ethernet to Gigabit Ethernet more than 12 years ago.
10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GE) continues to grow rapidly in data centers,
where it is now predicted to surpass shipment of Gigabit Ethernet ports
by the end of 2014, according to Crehan
Research. Among the 10GE connectivity solutions, 10GE over Copper
(10GBASE-T) is witnessing the strongest growth and support, soon
projected to become the dominant connectivity solutions in switches and
servers. Aquantia’s recently announced 28nm silicon promises to further
the penetration of the technology in cloud service providers and
corporate data centers.
Aquantia’s ability to translate market-leading technology into business
success was evidenced recently as it received the Global Semiconductor
Association’s (GSA) Most
Respected Private Company Award, as well as the Cisco
New Emerging Technology Supplier Award.
Aquantia’s 10Gigabit Ethernet ICs are at the heart of cloud computing
and large-scale data center deployments taking place today. This market
segment is going through a very fast transition, with astounding growth
in the total amount of compute power and the move to faster
connectivity. This has in turn led to a new paradigm for 10Gigabit
Ethernet all across the ecosystem. With its 10GBASE-T silicon products,
Aquantia delivers to its OEM customers the most versatile and highest
performance 10Gigabit Ethernet connectivity solution while providing
lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Located in Silicon Valley,
Aquantia is a venture-backed company, with strong tier-1 VCs and
strategic investor support. For more information, visit www.aquantia.com.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...
