UNIXPlus.com

Intel continues its legacy of Ethernet leadership by introducing a family of Intel® Ethernet Converged Network Adapter (Intel® Ethernet CNA) XL710s powered by the Intel® Ethernet XL710 Controller, codenamed Fortville.

The Intel® Ethernet CNA XL710 family addresses the demanding needs of the next-generation agile data center by providing unmatched features for both server and network virtualization, flexibility for LAN and SAN networks, and proven, reliable performance.

Leading 10/40 GbE Performance
Optimized performance vectors (and key uses) include:

  • Small Packet Performance: Maintains wire-rate throughput on smaller payload sizes (>128 bytes for 40GbE and 4x10GbE mode)
  • Bulk Transfer Performance: Delivers line-rate performance with low CPU usage for large application buffers
  • Virtualized Performance: Alleviates hypervisor I/O bottlenecks by providing flow separation for Virtual Machines (VMs)
  • Network Virtualization: Network virtualization overlay offloads including VXLAN, NVGRE, and Geneve
  • Storage Performance: Enables competitive performance with native OS drivers and intelligent offload for NAS (NFS, SMB), and SAN (iSCSI)
