Intel Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X520-DA2

Intel Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X520-DA2


Product Description

The Intel Ethernet 10 Gigabit Converged Network Adapter X520-DA2 enables data center transformation by delivering a reliable,unified 10GbE network connection. Advanced platform scalability features include:Receive Side Coalescing,Intel Ethernet Flow Director,and support for PCI Express Gen2. Intel VT-c delivers industry-leading I/O virtualization capabilities,including support for Single Route I/O virtualization (SR-IOV) and Virtual Machine Device Queues (VMDq). The Intel Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X520 provides advanced unified networking capabilities,including support for iSCSI,NFS,and FCoE. The Intel Ethernet Converged Network Adapter X520 facilitates greater network infrastructure consolidation and is the best choice for I/O virtualization. Intel Ethernet - It Just Works!

Product Features

  • 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 balance CPU cores when used with Receive-Side Scaling (RSS) from Microsoft or scalable I/O on Linux.
  • ISCSI remote boot support
  • Provides centralized storage area network (SAN) management at a lower cost than other iSCSI solutions.
  • Intel Direct Cache Access (DCA)
  • Enables the adapter to pre-fetch the data from memory,avoiding cache misses and improving application response time.
  • MSI-X support
  • Minimizes the overhead of interrupts. Load-balancing of interrupt handling between multiple cores/CPUs.
  • Low latency interrupts
  • Based on the sensitivity of the incoming data,the adapter can bypass the automatic moderation of time intervals between the interrupts.
  • Header splits and replication in receive
  • Helps the driver focus on the relevant part of the packet without the need to parse it.
  • IPsec offload
  • Offloads IPsec capability onto the adapter instead of the software to significantly improve I/O throughput and CPU usage.
  • Virtual Machine Load Balancing (VLMB)
  • Virtual Machines Load Balancing (VMLB) provides traffic load balancing across virtual switch,port,cable,or adapter failure.
  • Watchdog timer
  • Gives an indication to the manageability firmware or external devices that the chip or the driver is not functioning.
