Product Details

QMD8262 network daughter card supports simultaneous LAN (TCP/IP) and SAN (Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), iSCSI) traffic at line-rate, 10Gbps Ethernet speed. Convergence of traffic lowers data center costs by eliminating the need for separate LAN and SAN infrastructure. Data centers now need fewer adapters, cables, and switches, which also means reduced power and cooling costs. In addition, these adapters are fully compatible with existing Fibre Channel and iSCSI storage, providing investment protection for existing infrastructure.

Features

High Performance

  • 10Gbps per-port maximum throughput for high bandwidth storage (SaN) and networking (LaN) traffic.
  • Full hardware offload for FCoe and iSCSI protocol processing this offloading preserves CPU cycles, making the Converged Network adapter ideal for virtualized environments.
  • Full support for tCP/IP and ethernet performance enhancements such as Priority-Based Flow Control (802.1Qbb), jumbo frames, checksum offloads, and segmentation offloads.

Lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

  • Simultaneous multi-protocol enables reduction of hardware, cabling, power, cooling, and management costs through convergence of data and storage networking.
  • Create virtual adapters with guaranteed bandwidth allocations using unique Switch Independent Partitioning feature.
  • Manage networking, FCoe, and iSCSI with a single, unified management application (GUI and CLI)
