HPE NC551m Dual Port FlexFabric 10Gb Converged Network Adapter 580151-B21
The NC551m FlexFabric 10Gb mezzanine adapter supports Virtual Connect Flex-10 that allows each 10Gb port to be divided into four physical NICs to optimize bandwidth management for virtualized servers. When connected to a Convergence Enhanced Ethernet (CEE) capable switch, Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and Ethernet I/O are separated and routed to the corresponding network. For iSCSI storage, the NC551m supports full protocol offload providing better CPU efficiency when compared to software initiators enabling the server to handle increased virtualization workloads and compute-intensive applications. This combination of high-performance network and storage connectivity reduces cost and complexity and provides the flexibility and scalability to fully optimize BladeSystem servers. The NC551m delivers the performance benefits and cost savings of converged network connectivity for HP BladeSystem servers. The dual-port NC551m optimizes network and storage traffic with hardware acceleration and offloads for stateless TCP/IP, TCP Offload Engine (TOE), Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and iSCSI.
