Description: Intel 10 Gigabit AT2 - Network adapter - PCIe 2.0 x8 low profile - 10Gb Ethernet

Mfr Part #: E10G41AT2G1P5

MSRP: $408.96

This 10 Gigabit AT2 Ethernet server adapter showcases Intel's second-generation standards-based 10GBASE-T adapter in a low-profile PCI Express form factor. It provides bandwidth-intensive applications highly affordable 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) network performance with cost-effective RJ-45 connections for distances up to 100 meters. High-speed server connectivity - once reserved for costly, proprietary technologies such as High Performance Computing (HPC) clusters and grid-based computing - can now be achieved with the standardized connectivity of the Intel 10 Gigabit AT2 server adapter. Intel's adapter also provides 1000BASE-T support for gigabit connections to legacy switches.
Key Points
  • 10 Gigabit performance at the low cost of copper
  • Next-generation 10 Gigabit performance
  • Performance-enhancing features for multi-core environments
  • Advances for storage over Ethernet

  • Next-generation 10 Gigabit performance
    10 Gigabit Ethernet has moved past the early adoption stage and is rapidly becoming mainstay for backbones within enterprise and service provider networks. The escalating deployments of servers with multi-core processors and demanding applications such as HPC, database clusters, and video on demand are driving the need for 10 Gigabit connections. Based on the Intel 82598EB 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller, this next-generation Intel 10 Gigabit AT2 server adapter is designed to meet the throughput requirements of bandwidth-hungry applications.
  • Performance-enhancing features for multi-core environments
    When implemented within multi-core processor environments, the Intel 10 Gigabit AT2 server adapter offers advanced networking features, Intel I/O Acceleration technology (Intel I/OAT), for efficient distribution of Ethernet workloads across CPU cores. Load balancing of interrupts using MSI-X enables more efficient response times and application performance. CPU utilization can be lowered further through stateless offloads such as TCP segmentation offload, header replications/splitting, and Direct Cache Access (DCA). The Intel 10 Gigabit AT2 server adapter is optimized for virtualized environments, supporting multiple queues, alleviating I/O bottlenecks between virtual machines. Additionally, the Intel 10 Gigabit AT2 server adapter enables Intel QuickData Technology for faster I/O processing on quad-core and dual-core Intel Xeon processor-based servers.
  • Advances for storage over Ethernet
    The fast growth in storage capacity coupled with server virtualization has brought the need for Storage Area Network (SAN) to the forefront. To satisfy this growing demand, Intel 10 Gigabit AT2 server adapters support iSCSI acceleration through Intel I/OAT and provide advanced features for unified networking. Fast and reliable networked storage can be achieved via native iSCSI support with Microsoft, Linux, and VMware operating systems as well as support for iSCSI remote boot.
