Product Details

The Intel® Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X520 with SFP+ connectivity, are the most flexible and scalable ethernet adapters for a demanding data center environments.

Its Data center networks are being pushed to their limits. The escalating deployments of servers with multi-core processors and demanding applications such as High Performance Computing (HPC), database clusters, and video-on-demand are driving the need for 10 Gbps connections. Customers require flexible and scalable I/O solutions to meet the rigorous requirements of running mission-critical applications in virtualized and unified storage environments. 

Powered by Intel’s third-generation 10 GbE network controller, the Intel® Ethernet 82599 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller, the X520 adapter family addresses the demanding needs of the next-generation data center by providing unmatched features for virtualization, flexibility for LAN and SAN networking, and proven, reliable performance.

Features

Intel® 82599 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller

  • Energy-efficient design for next-generation 10 Gigabit performance and multi-core processors

SFP+ Connectivity

  • X520 Adapters with SFP+ connections support 10GBASE-SR, 10GBASE-LR and SFP+ Copper Direct Attach physical media.

Low-profile

  • Enables higher bandwidth and throughput from standard and low-profile PCIe slots and servers

Load balancing on multiple CPUs

  • Increases performance on multi-processor systems by efficiently balancing network loads across CPU cores when used with Receive-Side Scaling (RSS) from Microsoft or Scalable I/O on Linux

iSCSI remote boot support

  • Provides centralized storage area network (SAN) management at a lower cost than other iSCSI solutions

Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) Support

  • Includes FCoE Boot and Data Center Bridging

Support for most network operating systems (NOS)

  • Enables widespread deployment 

RoHS-compliant

  • Complies with the European Union directive 2002/95/EC to reduce the use of hazardous materials

Intel® PROSet Utility for Windows Device Manager

  • Provides point-and-click management of individual adapters, advanced adapter features, connection teaming, and virtual local area network (VLAN) configuration

Time Sync (IEEE 1588, 802.1as)

  • Enables networked Ethernet equipment to synchronize internal clocks according to a network master clock; endpoint can then acquire an accurate estimate of the master time by compensating for link latency
