Description: QLogic QLE8442-CU - Network adapter - PCIe 3.0 x8 low profile - 10 Gigabit SFP+ x 2
Mfr Part #: QLE8442-CU-CK
The QLogic 8400 Series Converged Network Adapters support simultaneous LAN (TCP/IP) and SAN (Fibre Channel over Ethernet [FCoE] and iSCSI) traffic at 10Gbps Ethernet (GbE) line rate speeds. The 8400 Series provides extremely low host CPU usage by enabling full hardware offloads.
The 8400 Series leverages QLogic's long-standing industry leadership in Ethernet by providing the highest levels of performance, efficiency, and scalability for the enterprise data center.
For more effective utilization of the 10GbE bandwidth, the QLogic 8400 Series Converged Network Adapters offer switch-independent NIC partitioning (network partitioning [NPAR]), which enables segmentation of a single 10GbE port into multiple network partitions and dynamic allocation of bandwidth to each port. The segmentation allows IT organizations to optimize resource utilization while lowering infrastructure and operational costs.
The acceleration of data center convergence - triggered by virtualization, software-defined networking (SDN), and multitenant cloud computing platforms - demands high-performance, converged network solutions. The QLogic 8400 Series Converged Network Adapters are the solution of choice for workload-intensive computing environments, providing a reliable, high-performance 10GbE connectivity solution.
- Delivers full line-rate 10GbE performance across both ports
- Consolidates network traffic (TCP/IP, FCoE, and iSCSI) over converged 10GbE connections
- Enables provisioning of 10GbE ports for greater deployment flexibility through switch-independent NIC partitioning
- Boosts host CPU efficiency with hardware offloads for network (TCP/IP) and storage (FCoE and iSCSI) data traffic
- Industry-leading storage (FCoE and iSCSI) transactional performance
- Designed for Next-Gen Server Virtualization
The 8400 Series Converged Network Adapters support today's most compelling set of powerful networking virtualization features: SR-IOV, switch-independent NIC partitioning (NPAR), tunneling offloads (VXLAN and NVGRE), and industry-leading performance, thus enhancing the underlying server virtualization features.
- Extreme Application Performance
The QLogic 8400 Series Adapter features a high-speed, flexible architecture driven by independent ultra-high performance engines. It delivers the industry's highest performance to meet and exceed the peak demands of the most demanding enterprise application or virtual platform.
- Operating Expense Savings with Low-Power PCI Express Gen3
The 8400 Series Converged Network Adapters are PCIe Gen3-based adapters that have one of the lowest power consumption profiles in the industry.
- Leadership, Confidence, and Trust
QLogic adapters offer users peace of mind and confidence, as proven through the company's market share leadership: #1 in Converged Network Adapters. The 8400 Series Converged Network Adapters offer the highest reliability, availability, and serviceability options that customers rely on to meet and exceed stringent service-level agreements for enterprise data centers.
