Product Details

The Cisco UCS Virtual Interface Card (VIC) 1340 is a 2-port, 40 Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)-capable modular LAN on motherboard (mLOM) mezzanine adapter. This innovation is designed exclusively for the B200 M3 and M4 generation of Cisco UCS B-Series Blade Servers.

Features

Stateless and Agile
The capability to define, create, and use interfaces on demand provides a stateless and agile server infrastructure. The personality of the card is determined dynamically at boot time using the service profile associated with the server. The service profile is used to determine the number of PCIe interfaces, their type (vNIC or vHBA), identity (MAC address) and World Wide Name (WWN), failover policy, bandwidth, and quality-of-service (QoS).

Next-Generation Data Center Features:

The hardware classification engine provides support for advanced data center requirements. These include:

  • Stateless network offloads for Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) and Network Virtualization using Generic Routing Encapsulation (NVGRE).
  • Low-latency features of the Cisco user-space NIC (usNIC).
  • High-bandwidth protocol RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE).
  • Performance-optimization applications such as Virtual Machine Queue (VMQ), Intel Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK), and Netflow.
