PLAN EP MCX4-LX 25GbE SFP28

The FUJITSU PLAN EP MCX4-LX 25GbE is based on Mellanox’s ConnectX®-4 Lx EN (Dual port) Network Interface Card. ConnectX-4 Lx EN Network Controller with 10/25Gb/s Ethernet connectivity addresses virtualized infrastructure challenges, delivering best-in-class and highest performance to various demanding markets and applications. Providing true hardware-based I/O isolation with unmatched scalability and efficiency, achieving the most cost-effective and flexible solution for Web 2.0, Cloud, data analytics, database, and storage platforms. 25Gb Ethernet (25GbE) enables network bandwidth to be cost-effectively scaled in support of next-generation server and storage solutions residing in Cloud and Web-scale data center environments. The 25GbE results in a single switch lane connection similar to existing 10GbE technology—but it delivers 2.5 times greater bandwidth.

Compared to 40GbE solutions, 25GbE technology provides superior switch port density by requiring just a single switch lane compared to the 40GbE with four lanes. FUJITSU PLAN EP MCX4-LX 25GbE Dual-Port 10/25GbE Network Interface Cards deliver advanced Ethernet solutions designed for FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY and PRIMEQUEST systems with Microsoft Windows Server 2016, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 12, VMware ESXi 6.5. Designed for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP2 operating system supporting use cases such as SAP HANA®, and for Microsoft Windows Server 2016 operating system supporting use cases such as Storage Spaces Direct certified with Premium and Standard SDDC (Software Defined Data Center) qualifiers.
