Product Details

The HPE NC373T is a high performance PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet multifunction network adapter for either standard or low profile (half height) slots in ProLiant servers running in a twisted pair (copper) network environment.

In addition to delivering standard Gigabit Ethernet networking, the NC373T supports TOE (TCP/IP Offload Engine) for Windows only and Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI), over a single network connection making it a multifunction Ethernet server adapter.

Besides its multifunction capabilities, the NC373T ships with all the advanced server features that ProLiant customers have come to expect, such as support for failover and load balancing, Pre-Boot Execution Environment (PXE), large send offload capability, multiple VLAN tagging, and auto-negotiated 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet speeds.

Features

  • The NC373T increases the efficient use of TCP offload resources, making the connections dynamically move between host and NIC, depending upon workload
  • With TCP/IP Offload Engine (TOE) for Windows only, the NC373T reduces the CPU cycles required to process incoming network traffic in Windows environments
  • By using Receive Side Scaling in multiple CPU systems, network traffic is no longer bottlenecked because the NC373T supports dynamic load balancing of incoming traffic across CPUs
  • When the NC373T is deployed as an iSCSI initiator, it functions as an HBA with accelerated performance for access to individual storage devices and SANs
  • The flexibility of the NC373T enables users to simplify their management operations by having a single I/O device provide both networking and storage needs
  • By providing unified networking and storage connections, the NC373T enables the deployment of a single fabric environment
