Giganet, Inc., a leader in server scalability for the Internet
age, today announced new cluster switches in 14- and 30-port
configurations for its Windows NT and Linux product lines (see
related announcement issued today ‘Giganet Brings the Power of cLAN
Server Farm Interconnects to Linux’).
The new cluster switches can be used as flexible,
high-performance building blocks for extremely large cluster
configurations of Intel servers. Individual servers can be

Giganet has improved the ability for businesses to cost effectively
scale their computing resources. With increased port density,
customers can further leverage cLAN’s performance and flexibility
to support mission-critical Internet, financial and
