  • 1Description
The NetEffect Ethernet Cluster Adapter SFP + SR from Intel offers full-function 10 Gb Ethernet Network Interface Card (NIC) capabilities. It also offers acceleration of networking, storage and clustering protocols. The adapter is setting new standards in application support, networking performance, power efficiency and configuration simplicity.
Sustained, Predictable Performance Under Load
The cluster adapter features a patented Virtual Pipeline Architecture that strikes the optimal balance between high performance, low power consumption and small Byte Order Mark (BOM). Low latency (under 6 µsec), high bandwidth and power efficiency are the result of seamlessly coordinated transport offload, RDMA and user-level direct access (ULDA) techniques used in combination to accelerate various networking protocols. Scalable, deterministic performance is sustained in heavily loaded multiple-connection environments such as multicore, multi-processor nodes, high-performance computing and the dense, compute and I/O intensive configurations that characterize virtualized environments.
Single Firmware Image
The single low-power adapter seamlessly replaces separate adapters for networking, storage and clustering, thus reducing power, cost, complexity and management. A single firmware and OS driver image supports different program interfaces and network protocols, simplifying both deployment and ongoing maintenance.
Lower Power, Higher Processing Densities
At 6.2 W (typical), the adapter consumes only one third of the average power consumed by competitive adapters. Critical in power-constrained data centers, such power savings support higher computing densities within the existing power envelopes, increasing processing per square foot.
Transparent Application Support
It supports a broad range of industry-standard application programming interfaces (APIs). Existing applications using these APIs require no modification, re-compilation or porting.
Standard Media Interfaces
The PCIe low-profile adapter features a single port that supports standard copper and optical media interfaces.
The adapter is used for Compute and I/O intensive applications in financial services, Oil and Gas, CAD/CAE and other industries. It is also used for market data streaming, computational fluid dynamics, finite element analysis and simulation as well as reservoir simulation and visualization. Other applications include high-performance database, web servers and research clusters.
