Description: Intel Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X520-LR1 - Network adapter - PCIe 2.0 x8 low profile - 10GBase-LR
Mfr Part #: E10G41BFLR
The Intel Ethernet 10 Gigabit Converged Network Adapter X520-LR1 enables data center transformation by delivering a reliable, unified 10GbE long range fiber optic connection. Advanced platform scalability features include: Receive Side Coalescing, Intel Ethernet Flow Director, and support for PCI Express Gen2. Intel VT-c delivers industry-leading I/O virtualization capabilities, including support for Single Route I/O virtualization (SR-IOV) and Virtual Machine Device Queues (VMDq). The Intel Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X520 provides advanced unified networking capabilities, including support for iSCSI, NFS, and FCoE.
- LR Optic module is included
- Best choice for virtualization
- Unified networking and storage
- Support for Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)
- Support for iSCSI
- Reliable performance
- PCIe v2.0 (5 GT/s)
- Designed for multi-core processors
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 balance 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.
- Intel Direct Cache Access (DCA)
Enables the adapter to pre-fetch the data from memory, avoiding cache misses and improving application response time.
- MSI-X support
Minimizes the overhead of interrupts. Load-balancing of interrupt handling between multiple cores/CPUs.
- Low latency interrupts
Based on the sensitivity of the incoming data, the adapter can bypass the automatic moderation of time intervals between the interrupts.
- Header splits and replication in receive
Helps the driver focus on the relevant part of the packet without the need to parse it.
- IPsec offload
Offloads IPsec capability onto the adapter instead of the software to significantly improve I/O throughput and CPU usage.
- Virtual Machine Load Balancing (VLMB)
Virtual Machines Load Balancing (VMLB) provides traffic load balancing across virtual switch, port, cable, or adapter failure.
- Watchdog timer
Gives an indication to the manageability firmware or external devices that the chip or the driver is not functioning.
