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.
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).
