Cloud Adapter for PAN Solutions
Emulex OCec14102 Cloud Adapter

As a member of the CNA 14000 family, the OCec14102 Cloud Adapter uses a 10Gbit/s DCB (Converged Enhanced Ethernet) infrastructure for networking and storage, reducing capital expense (CAPEX) for adapters, switches and cables, and operational expense (OPEX) for power, cooling and IT administration. The OCec14102 Cloud Adapter increases data center IT agility and scalability, as well as optimation of the server hardware utilization by scaling high density virtualization.
The OCec14102 Cloud Adapter with 10GbE CNAs functionality is designed for the high bandwidth and scalability demands of Tier-1 enterprise applications with storage protocol (FCoE and iSCSI) offloads, more scalable virtualization with support for cloud optimization using Overlay Networking technology.
The Emulex OpenWorks Connector offers a bare metal adapter configuration management and rapid provisioning/deployment capabilities for scale-out environments such as cloud-based infrastructures. Third party provisioning tools, like Egenera PAN Manager 8.0, are able to utilize the new OpenWorks Connector Boot Manager to oversee the Emulex OneConnect OCec14000 Cloud Adapters. The combination with Egenera PAN Manager 8.0 allows rapidly configuration and provisioning of machine images to bare metal rack servers for physical and virtual environments.
