10G Ethernet vendor Myricom taps new CEO, expands beyond HPC

Myricom, a pioneer in high performance computing that has shifted its focus to more mainstream networking applications in recent years, has named co-founder Nan Boden as its new president and CEO.

Myricom, a pioneer in high performance computing that has shifted its focus to more mainstream networking applications in recent years, has named co-founder Nan Boden as its new president and CEO.

Boden, who had been CFO, replaces Chuck Seitz, another of Myricom's founders. The Arcadia, Calif., company spun out of the California Institute of Technology in 1994 and sold its technoloy into clustered computer and supercomputer networks at universities and other such environments.

Don't Miss: The evolution of Ethernet

Boden will look to raise Myricom's profile as the company forges ahead with customized firmware for its high-speed Myri-10G Ethernet cards that are gaining ground at IPTV service provider networks, financial institutions and other customers beyond the HPC computing sites where Myricom made its early mark. The company boasts that it actually supports 20G on its cards, which each feature 2 ports.

We noted in an article late last year that Infiniband had rocketed up the list of Top 500 supercomputer implementations, with Myricom's Myrinet technology losing ground in this area as it refocuses on more mainstream markets.

Myricom competes vs. companies such as Intel and Broadcom.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
