Description: QLogic FastLinQ QL41262HLCU - Channel Kit - network adapter - PCIe 3.0 x8 low profile - 25 Gigabit SFP28 x 2
Mfr Part #: QL41262HLCU-CK
FastLinQ QL41262HLCU 25/10GbE converged network adapter (CNA) with universal remote direct memory access (RDMA) leverages Cavium's technology to deliver high Ethernet performance. Integrated, advanced networking eliminates I/O bottlenecks and conserves CPU cycles. Optimized for use across enterprises, managed service providers (MSPs), and large public and scalable public cloud deployments, the QL41262HLCU enables organizations to achieve another levels of performance in physical, virtual, and cloud environments. The 25G/10GE Ethernet (25GbE) specification enables network bandwidth to be cost-effectively scaled in support of server and storage solutions, residing in cloud and web-scale data center environments. 25GbE results in a single-lane connection similar to existing 10GbE technology - but it delivers greater bandwidth. 25GbE technology provides superior switch port density by requiring just a single lane, along with lower costs and power requirements.
- Extremely powerful 25G adapter with 10G compatibility
- Universal RDMA - support for RoCE, RoCEv2 and iWARP technologies
- FastLinQ SmartAN for simplified connectivity with switches without user intervention
- Secure firmware update with private/public key encryption
- Increase VM density and accelerate multitenant networks
- Accelerate the demanding telco NFV workloads
- Manage hyperscale OpenStack deployments
- Reduce capital expenditure and operating expense
FastLinQ QL41262HLCU 25/10GbE technology delivers better value-per-Gigabit. The adapter is backward compatible with existing 10GbE installations, while allowing an upgrade to 25GbE infrastructure. This technology enables cloud providers and large-scale data center operators to reduce operating expense while continuing to scale their network of server and storage nodes to meet increasing demands. Cavium 25GbE technology is cost-efficient and power-efficient, because it uses a single lane. QL41262HLCU 25/10GbE adapter is compatible with 25 Gbps lanes, used in 100GbE, paving the way to a seamless upgrade path to connect to 100GbE switches, that have 4×25GbE capability.
- Accelerate any network with universal RDMA offload
FastLinQ QL41262HLCU 25/10GbE adapter supports RoCE and iWARP acceleration to deliver low latency, low CPU utilization, and high performance. QL41262HLCU 25/10GbE adapters have the unique capability to deliver universal RDMA, that enables RoCE, RoCEv2, and iWARP. Cavium universal RDMA and emerging low latency I/O bus mechanisms, such as network file system over RDMA (NFSoRDMA), and non-volatile memory express (NVMe) allow customers to accelerate access to data. Cavium's offloading technology increases cluster efficiency and scalability to multiple nodes.
- Wire-speed network virtualization
Enterprise-class data centers can be scaled, using overlay networks to carry VM traffic over a logical tunnel, using NVGRE, VXLAN, and GENEVE. Although overlay networks can resolve virtual local area network (VLAN) limitations, native stateless offloading engines are bypassed, which places a higher load on the system's CPU. FastLinQ QL41262HLCU 25/10GbE adapter efficiently handles this load with advanced NVGRE, VXLAN, and GENEVE stateless offload engines, that access the overlay protocol headers. This access enables traditional stateless offloads of encapsulated traffic with native-level performance in the network. Additionally, the FastLinQ QL41262HLCU 25GbE adapter supports VMware NSX and Open vSwitch (OVS).
- Hyper-scale orchestration with OpenStack
FastLinQ QL41262HLCU 25/10GbE adapter supports the OpenStack open-source infrastructure for constructing and supervising public, private, and hybrid cloud computing platforms. It provides for both networking and storage services (block, file, and object) for iSER. These platforms allow providers to rapidly and horizontally scale VMs over their entire, diverse, and widely spread network architecture to meet the real-time needs of their customers. Cavium's integrated, multiprotocol management utility, QConvergeConsole (QCC), provides advanced features, that allow customers to visualize the OpenStack-orchestrated data center, using auto-discovery technology.
- Accelerate telco network function virtualization (NFV) workloads
In addition to OpenStack, FastLinQ QL41262HLCU 25/10GbE adapter supports NFV, that allows decoupling of network functions and services from dedicated hardware (such as routers, firewalls, and load balancers) into hosted VMs. NFV enables network administrators to flexibly create network functions and services as they need them, reducing capital expenditure and operating expenses, and enhancing business and network services agility.
- Secure, reliable and interoperable
The FastLinQ QL41262HLCU 25G/10GE adapter adheres to standards, that ensure interoperability with a wide range of network solutions. Cavium adapters are secure by design. Through public and private key encryption technology, the adapter enforces a process for secure firmware updates, that prevent hackers from altering the code running on the adapter.
