The Intel® Ethernet Network Adapter X722 features iWARP RDMA for high data throughput, low-latency workloads and low CPU utilization. The X722 is ideal for Software Defined Storage solutions, NVMe over Fabric solutions and Virtual Machine Migrations acceleration.
RDMA is a host-offload, host-bypass technology that enables a low-latency, high-throughput direct memory-to-memory data communication between applications over a network.
iWARP extensions to TCP/IP, standardized by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), eliminate three major sources of networking overhead: TCP/IP stack process, memory copies, and application context switches. Based on TCP/IP, iWARP is highly scalable and ideal for Hyper-converged storage solutions.
The X722 is one of the Intel® Ethernet 700 Series Network Adapters. These adapters are the foundation for server connectivity, providing broad interoperability, critical performance optimizations, and increased agility for Telecommunications, Cloud, and Enterprise IT network solutions.
Built on more than 35 years of continuous Ethernet innovations, the Intel® Ethernet 700 Series delivers networking performance across a wide range of network port speeds through intelligent offloads, sophisticated packet processing, and quality open source drivers.
