Do you need a high-performance 10 Gb Ethernet adapter for your HP ProLiant Gen9 server family?
The HP FlexFabric 10Gb 2-port 556FLR-SFP+ Adapter is installed in the FlexibleLOM socket in the ProLiant Gen9 Rack/Tower servers. The adapter offers 10 GbE FlexibleLOM with RDMA and Tunnel Offload features. It provides full-featured, high-performance, converged 10 Gb Ethernet that accelerates IT services and increases data center efficiency.
Tunnel Offload provides efficient overlay networking to increase VM migration flexibility and network scale with minimal impact to performance. Traditional layer 2 networks limit mobility and scale of virtualized and multi-tenant workloads.
With RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) data transfer efficiency dramatically increases with low latencies for applications such as Microsoft Hyper-V Live Migration, Microsoft SQL and Microsoft Storage Spaces with SMB Direct.
Lower Costs and Deliver Faster Services by Converging FCoE or RoCE with LAN Traffic on a Single Wire
• The HP FlexFabric 10Gb 2-port 556FLR-SFP+ Adapter is the industry’s first product to converge FCoE or RoCE with LAN traffic on a single Ethernet fabric, reducing the complexity for managing multiple traffic in the data center.
Improve Network Virtualization Performance and Scale with Tunnel Offload
• The HP FlexFabric 10Gb 2-port 556FLR-SFP+ Adapter uses Tunnel Offload and a 10 GbE bandwidth improvement to take full advantage of overlay networking.
Improve Operational Agility with Faster VM Migration and Storage Data Access
• The HP FlexFabric 10Gb 2-port 556FLR-SFP+ Adapter provides faster Microsoft Hyper-V Live Migration (using SMB Direct with RoCE instead of TCP/IP).
