Dual port 10 Gbit/s Ethernet Mezzanine Card

Most flexible and scalable Ethernet Mezzanine card for today's demanding datacenter environment - accelerating PRIMERGY BX900 server blades' LAN traffic and the herein running mission-critical applications. Just in virtualized environments with a growing number of VMs per physical server, this controller combines provision of unmatched features and reliable performance.

Features & Benefits

Features Benefits
Top LAN performance for Local Area Networks
  • Intel® 82599 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller

  • Industry-leading, energy-efficient design for next-generation 10 Gigabit performance and multi-core processors saves cost, power and complexity
Multi-core CPU acceleration
  • Load balancing on multi-core processors through Intelligent Queue Support

  • Increases performance on multi-processor systems by efficiently balancing network loads across CPU cores when used with Receive-Side Scaling (RSS) from Microsoft or Scalable I/O on Linux
Virtualization at its best
  • Intel® VT-c with VMDq and VMDc (SR-IOV + VM Mobility) greatly disburdens the Hypervisors of supporting virtualization operating systems from CPU intensive workloads; SR-IOV provides up to 64 direct connections (Virtual Functions) between one LAN port and the Virtual Machines of a server blade

  • Enhanced data throughput of virtual machines and eased migration of VMs
