"We met Solarflare a couple of years ago and they were really good at high frequency trading. Our network and systems engineering teams said wait, if they work for high frequency trading, that looks just like CloudFlare. We are processing a ton of traffic – we do over a trillion requests a month through our network. A trillion. With Solarflare network drivers applied for our application, we saw massive improvements over anything else on the market."
Co-founder, Head of User Experience
"We came up with a best of breed platform that gave us ultimate reliability with ultimate speed. Speed is one factor in the trading platform, but if you don't have reliability, you’ll never be in the game. One of the key things we were looking for was consistency of performance. With Solarflare – as we went from very little traffic to full-bore line rate – we saw an extremely linear and predictable jitter profile that we didn’t see from other vendors."
Senior Vice President, Systems Infrastructure
"When we were thinking about which technologies to deploy for our new trading platform, we took a lot of gear into our lab to benchmark performance. Obviously, choosing Solarflare means that we were very delighted with the performance we saw there."

"I'm blown away with the test results. Some of the cards we have tested install easily, but they don't reach above 390MB/sec write speed, while others require extensive configuration and tweaking to get working. Solarflare's adapters ran out of the box and achieved speeds approaching 500MB/sec without tuning. Congratulations on making a wonderful 10Gig Ethernet card for Mac OS X."
Chief Technology Officer
"For performance reasons, we like to stay close to the bleeding edge of Linux kernel development. We were impressed that Solarflare's NICs worked out of the box on our new kernel. The Solarflare driver is very easy to use and offered great core scaling features. Their receive side scaling (RSS) implementation made it straightforward for us to balance our workload over all CPU cores and maximize performance."

"My goal is to increase both compute and I/O performance in each cluster node. Solarflare offers a wealth of extensible server adapter features which are not found on competitive products. I am also interested in Solarflare's OpenOnload middleware to further accelerate our future storage performance."
