The BR-1020-0010 Dual Port 10 Gb/s Converged Network Adapter from QLogic integrates 10 Gb/s ethernet NIC functionality with fiber channel technology, enabling transport over a 10-gigabit ethernet (GbE) connection through the data center bridging (DCB) and fiber channel over ethernet (FCoE) protocols.
It supports DCB for low-latency and lossless ethernet connectivity and storage over ethernet applications (FCoE and iSCSI). It also supports Intel, AMD, and Oracle server platforms. It provides optimal ethernet performance including IPv4 and IPv6 checksum offload, RSS, HDS, jumbo frame support, and TSO. It features host connectivity manager (HCM) and a command line utility (BCU CLI) to configure and manage storage-attached network (SAN) infrastructure.
Improved TCO through I/O Consolidation
DCB is a set of industry standards that enhances Ethernet protocol to enable low-latency and lossless network infrastructure for storage and other highly demanding traffic types.Itsupport all of these standards, including priority-based flow control (PFC), enhanced transmission selection (ETS), congestion notification (CN), and data center bridging exchange (DCBX). FCoE encapsulates and transmits fiber channel frames over this enhanced ethernet infrastructure while preserving the fiber channel constructs and management paradigm for backward compatibility and cost effectiveness.
Centralized Adapter Management
Host connectivity manager (HCM) is an easy-to-use adapter management tool for configuring, monitoring, and troubleshooting the BR-Series adapters. HCM enables server administers to quickly configure BR-Series adapters locally or remotely. HCM scans the SAN environment to discover visible storage resources and display target logical unit number (LUNs). A simple to use graphical tree view provides fast access to the managed host bus adapters, converged network adapters, ports, and target storage resources.HCM is tightly integrated with Brocade Network Advisor (BNA) to provide end-to-end configuration and management of the entire SAN infrastructure. It also provides a powerful command line interface, BCU CLI, for scripting and task automation.
These adapters are full-featured 10GbE NICs that deliver 10 Gb/s line-rate performance per port. They provide stateless networking offloads such as TCP checksum and segmentation offloads for improved performance and more efficient CPU usage. Additional CPU cycles can then be dedicated to additional application processing. It helps business of all sizes can scale their virtual server deployments and virtualize highly demanding applications, resulting in better server resource utilization, lower capital and operational costs.
Optimized For Virtual Environment
It support N_Port ID virtualization (NPIV) with up to 255 virtual ports, and are compatible with most major hypervisor solutions in the industry.
Optimal Support for Windows Server 2012 With support of Windows Server 2012 policy-based quality of service (QoS), enables administrators to specify network bandwidth controls based on application type, users, and servers for the physical network. Further, with support of Hyper-V QoS enables cloud hosting providers and enterprises to deliver optimal network performance for multiple types of traffic for VMs on Windows Server 2012 servers equipped with BR-1020 adapters running in DCB mode.
