Energy-Efficient, Next-Generation 10 Gigabit Performance 10 Gigabit Ethernet has moved past the early adoption stage and is rapidly becoming a mainstay for backbones within Enterprise and service provider networks. The escalating deployments of servers with multi-core processors and demanding applications such as high performance computing (HPC), database clusters, and video-on-demand are driving the need for 10 Gigabit connections. Based on the Intel® 82598EB 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller, the next-generation Intel® 10 Gigabit XF Server Adapters are designed to meet the throughput and latency requirements of bandwidth-hungry applications, while offering a very low power envelope for energy efficiency. Ideal for slot-constrained environments, the Intel® 10 Gigabit XF Dual Port Server Adapter provides a simplified alternative to multiple 1 Gbps server adapters.
Features and benefits
|Intel® 82598EB 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller||Industry-leading, energy-efficient design for next-generation 10 Gigabit performance and multi-core processors.|
|Low-Profile||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 balancing network loads across CPU cores when used with Receive-Side Scaling from Microsoft or Scalable I/O on Linux*.|
|Intel® I/O Acceleration Technology (Intel® I/OAT)||Accelerates I/O with higher throughput and lower CPU utilization by offloading processing overhead.|
|iSCSI remote boot support||Provides centralized storage area network (SAN) management at a lower cost than competing iSCSI solutions.|
Minimizes the overhead of interrupts.Allows load balancing of interrupt handling between different cores/CPUs.
|Virtual Machine Device queues (VMDq)||
Allows the efficient routing of packets to the correct target machine in a virtualized environment using multiple hardware queues.Ensures transmit fairness and prevents head-of-line blocking.
|Low latency||Ability to toggle between the interrupt aggregation and non-aggregation mode based on the type of data being transferred.|
Optimized queues: 32 transmit (Tx) and 64 receive(Rx) per port
|Network packet handling without waiting or buffer overflow Efficient packet prioritization.|
|Compatible with x4, x8, and x16 standard and low-profile PCI Express* slots||Allows dual-port operation in almost any PCI Express server slot, except x1 slots, and allows each PCI Express slot port to operate without interfering with the other.|
|Support for most network operating systems (NOS)||Enables widespread deployment.|
|Remote management support||Reduces support costs with remote management based on industry-wide standards.|
|Multi-mode fiber 62.5/50 um||Ensures compatibility with fiber-optic cable lengths up to 300 meters.|
|RoHS compliant, lead-free technology||Compliant with the European Union directive (effective as of July 2006) to reduce the use of hazardous materials.|
|Intel® PROSet Utility for Windows* Device Manager||Provides point-and-click power over individual adapters, advanced adapter features, connection teaming, and virtual local area network (VLAN) configuration.|
|Intel backing||Backed by an Intel® limited lifetime warranty, 90-day money-back guarantee (U.S. and Canada), and worldwide support.|
