Intel® Ethernet Server Adapter I350Toote kirjeldus inglise keeles:Overview
The new Intel® Ethernet Server Adapter I350 family builds on Intel’s history of excellence
in Ethernet products. Intel continues its market leadership with this new generation
of PCIe* GbE network adapters. Built with the bridgeless Intel® Ethernet Controller
I350, these adapters represent the next step in the Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) networking
evolution for the enterprise and data center by introducing new levels of performance
through industry-leading enhancements for both virtualized and iSCSI Unified Networking
environments. This new family of adapters also includes new power management
technologies such as Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) and DMA Coalescing (DMAC).Flexible I/O Virtualization
The Intel® Ethernet Server Adapter I350 family includes Intel® Virtualization Technology
for connectivity (Intel® VT-c) to deliver I/O virtualization and Quality of Service (QoS)
features designed directly into the controller on the adapter. I/O virtualization advances
network connectivity models used in today’s servers to more efficient models by providing
Flexible Port Partitioning (FPP), multiple Rx/Tx queues, and on-controller QoS
functionality that can be used in both virtual and non-virtual server deployments.
By taking advantage of the PCI-SIG SR-IOV specification, Intel® Ethernet products enable
Flexible Port Partitioning (FPP). With FPP, virtual controllers can be used by the
Linux* host directly and/or assigned to virtual machines. With this port partitioning,
administrators can create up to eight dedicated connections on a single Ethernet port
for use in bare-metal and virtualized server deployments.
In a bare-metal Linux server, host processes can be assigned to dedicated network
resources to provide traffic isolation and balanced bandwidth allocation.
