Intel® 82599ES PCIe 2.0 Server Adapter (X520-DA2 Equivalent) with dual port SFP+ 10GbE network connectivity.
Intel’s family of Intel® Ethernet X520 Server Adapters with SFP+ connectivity are the most flexible and scalable Ethernet adapters for today’s demanding data centre environments. Data centre networks are being pushed to their limits. The escalating deployments of servers with multi-core processors and demanding applications such as High-Performance Computing (HPC), database clusters, and video-on-demand are driving the need for 10 Gigabit connections. Customers require flexible and scalable I/O solutions to meet the rigorous requirements of running mission-critical applications in virtualized and unified storage environments. Powered by Intel’s third-generation 10 GbE network controller, the Intel® Ethernet 82599ES 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller, the X520 server adapter family addresses the demanding needs of the next-generation data centre by providing unmatched features for virtualization, flexibility for LAN and SAN networking, and proven, reliable performance.
Best Choice for Virtualization
The explosive growth in virtualization is leading to an increasing demand for network performance. With more Virtual Machines (VMs) running on each multi-core server, networking traffic is dramatically increased with each VM competing for available I/O bandwidth. Intel’s family of Intel Ethernet X520 Server Adapters addresses networking bottlenecks in virtualized environments. These adapters enable network-intensive applications to achieve the performance expected in a virtualized environment.
