The QLE8442-CU-CK 8400 Series 10 Gb/s Dual Port Converged Network Adapter from QLogic is the solution suitable for workload-intensive computing environments, providing a reliable, high-performance 10GbE connectivity solution. It delivers full line-rate 10GbE performance across both ports and consolidates network traffic (TCP/IP, FCoE, and iSCSI) over converged 10GbE connections.

It enables provisioning of 10GbE ports for optimal deployment flexibility through switch-independent NIC partitioning and boosts host CPU efficiency with hardware offloads for network (TCP/IP) and storage (FCoE and iSCSI) data traffic.

PCIe Gen3 x8 (8GT/s) support

Full line-rate performance across both ports
Broad OS and hypervisor support
Network boot support :
- iSCSI remote boot
- FCoE boot from SAN
- Pre-execution environment (PXE) 2.0
Switch-independent NIC partitioning with up to four partition assignments per 10GbE link
MSI and MSI-X support
IPv4 and IPv6 offloads
PCI-SIG single root input/output virtualization (SR-IOV)
Comprehensive stateless offloads
RX/TX multiqueue:
- VMware NetQueue
- Microsoft virtual machine queue (VMQ)
- LinuxMultiqueue
Tunneling offloads for Network Virtualization using Generic Routing Encapsulation (NVGRE) and Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN)
Receive side scaling (RSS)
Transmit side scaling (TSS)
Support for virtual LAN (VLAN) tagging
Support for jumbo frames larger than 1,500 bytes
Network teaming, failover, and load balancing:
- Smart Load Balancing (SLB)
- Link aggregation control protocol (LACP) and generic trunking
Data center bridging (DCB)

Designed for Next-Gen Server Virtualization
The 8400 Series is designed for maximum flexibility, which enables simultaneous, fully-offloaded, high-performance, multiprotocol (FCoE, iSCSI, and NIC) support from each independent port of the adapter.It supports compelling set of powerful networking virtualization features: SR-IOV, switch-independent NIC partitioning (NPAR), tunneling offloads (VXLAN and NVGRE), and industry-leading performance, thus enhancing the underlying server virtualization features.
Extreme Application Performance
The QLogic 8400 Series adapter features a high-speed, flexible architecture driven by independent ultra-high performance engines. It delivers the optimal performance to meet and exceed the peak demands of the most demanding enterprise application or virtual platform.
Operating Expense Savings with Low-Power PCIe Gen3
The 8400 Series Converged Network Adapters are PCIe Gen3-based adapters that have the lowest power consumption profiles in the industry. PCIe Gen3 enables the 8400 series adapters to deliver line rate dual-port performance.The 8400 Series Adapters are designed to provide maximum power efficiency, consuming a mere 7.65W of power and yet delivering a fully-offloaded, high-performance I/O connectivity platform.
