Research firm Dell’Oro Group has reported that high-speed server network connectivity is experiencing very strong growth. More specifically, combined 10 Gigabit (10GB) Ethernet Network Adapter and LAN on Motherboard port shipments doubled sequentially during the third quarter of 2009, while 8GB Fiber Channel Host Bus Adapter port shipments saw a similar increase.?

“Blade servers were a major driver of the third quarter’s strong growth,” said Seamus Crehan, VP of Dell’Oro Group, in a statement. “This class of server, which generally has been growing faster than the overall server market, has seen quicker adoption of high-speed network connectivity. This is, in part, due to 10GB Ethernet and 8GB Fiber Channel having much lower prices for blade servers than for standalone servers."?

Broadcom and Intel benefitted the most from the strong growth in 10GB Ethernet, while Emulex and QLogic both enjoyed very strong 8GB Fiber Channel growth.
