Intel® 82599 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller: Product Brief
Transforming the Data Center Through a Reliable and Unified 10GbE Network
An Intelligent Solution
A number of trends are driving change in the data center. Information growth continues unabated, server virtualization requires multi-core servers with higher bandwidth and networked storage, and power and cooling remains a significant challenge. These trends are driving IT managers to look for new, optimized solutions that support the dynamic data center. From a network perspective, IT managers recognize how the trend towards 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) will benefit them; they want to consolidate multiple GbE links into a single 10GbE network to lower cost and complexity.
Intel’s third-generation 10GbE controller, the Intel® 82599 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller continues to build on the innovative trends set by its predecessor and pushes the envelope even further.
• Advanced features such as Receive Side Coalescing, Intel® Ethernet Flow Director, and support for PCI Express* 2.0 help deliver new levels of 10GbE performance
• Intel® Virtualization Technology for Connectivity (Intel® VT-c) delivers industry-leading I/O virtualization capabilities that provide flexibility, scalability and mobility
• Advanced unified networking capabilities, including support for lossless Ethernet, iSCSI acceleration, NAS, and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) offloads help consolidate data center networks onto a single Ethernet fabric.
The Intel 82599 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller along with Intel® Xeon® processor 5500 series-based servers deliver unmatched performance scalability that signals a new paradigm in the data center—a paradigm of intelligent solutions that help manage growth while controlling costs; a paradigm of advanced virtualization features; and a paradigm of a simple, cost-effective, unified network.
