Product Information for IBM Emulex 10 GbE Virtual Fabric Adapter II for IBM System x Network adapter - PCI Express 2.0 x8 - 2 ports

Highlights for IBM Emulex 10 GbE Virtual Fabric Adapter II for IBM System x Network adapter - PCI Express 2.0 x8 - 2 ports

The Emulex Virtual Fabric Adapter II for IBM System x is a high-performance, dual-port network adapter for 10Gb Ethernet (10GbE) networks. It offers the benefits and flexibility of I/O convergence with a single end-to-end solution. Stateless TCP/IP offloads and TCP chimney offload provide maximum bandwidth with minimum use of CPU resources.

Product features

Optimized network connectivity
The Emulex Virtual Fabric Adapter II for IBM System x is a high-performance, dual-port network adapter for 10Gb Ethernet (10GbE) networks. It offers the benefits and flexibility of I/O convergence with a single end-to-end solution. Stateless TCP/IP offloads and TCP chimney offload provide maximum bandwidth with minimum use of CPU resources.

Superior 10Gb/s performance
The Emulex 10GbE Virtual Fabric Adapter II for IBM System x achieves line rate 10Gb/s performance with support for TCP/IP stateless offloads and TCP chimney offload. TCP chimney offload reduces system processor utilization, provides increased system performance and reduces overall system power requirements.

One adapter to manage all workloads
The Emulex 10GbE Virtual Fabric Adapter II for IBM System x is based on the Emulex OneConnect Universal Converged Network Adapter (UCNA) platform that also includes support for Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and iSCSI protocol offloads. By using a common infrastructure for Ethernet and storage networks, data centers can reduce capital expense (CapEx) for adapters, switches and cables, and operational expense (OpEx) for power, cooling and IT administration.

Optimized for virtualization
The integrated and option Virtual Fabric Adapter II for IBM System x offer the benefits and flexibility of an exclusive enhanced virtual NIC (vNIC) function, which enables bidirectional bandwidth management, dynamic bandwidth allocation and I/O convergence in a single end-to-end solution in partnership with IBMs networking division. Each port on the 10GbE Virtual Fabric Adapter II card can support up to four vNICs per physical port. In addition, the 10GbE Virtual Fabric Adapter II card supports Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) which allows PCIe devices to appear as multiple virtual devices that can optimize I/O performance by providing direct I/O for virtual machines (VMs).
