PLAN EP QL45212 2x10/25GbE SFP28

The Fujitsu PLAN EP QL45212 is based on Cavium's QLogic® FastLinQ™ QL45212HLCU (Dual port) Network Interface Card. This Intelligent Ethernet Adapter uses QLogic’s seventh generation technology to deliver true 10/25Gb per second (10/25Gbps) Ethernet performance per port. Integrated, advanced networking eliminates I/O bottlenecks and conserves CPU cycles. 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-lane connection similar to existing 10GbE technology—but it delivers 2.5 times greater bandwidth.

Features & Benefits

Features Benefits
  • Certified for Microsoft SDDC (Software Defined Data Center) PREMIUM and STANDARD Logo Qualifiers for Storage Spaces Direct
  • Designed for Fujitsu's PRIMEFLEX for Storage Spaces Direct Solutions
  • Windows Server 2016 Support
  • Designed and released for qualifying PRIMERGY and PRIMEQUEST servers supporting Windows Server 2016. Other operating systems are not supported.
  • Remote Direct Memory Access - RDMA
  • Build the most powerful scale-out storage systems with RoCE and RoCE V2 RDMA technologies (Windows SMB Direct and Storage Spaces Direct (S2D)). iWARP is not supported.
  • Dual Port at line rates 10 and 25 Gbps
  • Supports 10 Gbps line rate with either SFP+ optical transceivers and optical fibers or 10G Direct Attached Copper cables. Supports 25 Gbps line rate with 25G Direct Attached Copper and 100G/4x25G Splitter DAC cables. SFP28 optical transceivers are not supported, since the PLAN EP QL45212 requires Non-FEC switches - which do not exist in Fujitsu's portfolio.
