Product Details

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.

  • Interoperability - Multiple media types for broad compatibility backed by extensive testing and validation.
  • Optimization - Intelligent offloads and accelerators to unlock network performance in servers with Intel® Xeon® processors.
  • Agility - Both Kernel and Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) drivers for scalable packet processing.

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.
