Emulex OneConnect OCe11102-NM dual-port 10Gb/s Ethernet network adapters with optical interconnects feature stateless TCP/IP and TCP Chimney offload for maximum performance using minimum CPU resources. Based on the third-generation BE3 controller, the OCe11102-NM reduces power costs with leading scalability per watt. The OCe11102-NM optimizes server virtualization with support for VMware NetQueue, multiple NIC functions and support for Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV).
Emulex OneConnect Universal CNA platform
The OCe11102-N is a member of the Emulex OneConnect Universal Converged Network Adapter (UCNA) platform that also includes support for Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and iSCSI protocol offloads. By using a common infrastructure for Ethernet and storage networks, data centers can reduce capital expense (CapEx) for adapters, switches and cables, and operational expense (OpEx) for power, cooling and IT administration.
Greener data centers
The Emulex OneConnect UCNA platform delivers industry-leading performance and scalability per watt, reducing requirements for power and cooling. Protocol offload enables efficient use of computing resources, supports more virtual machine (VMs) per CPU, and reduces the number of servers required to support data center demands.
Advanced error checking
End-to-end data protection with hardware parity, CRC, ECC, Enhanced Error Handing (EEH) and other advanced error checking and correcting ensure that data is safe from corruption.
Multi-core servers are enabling much higher virtualization ratios. OneConnect adapters support VMware NetQueue to optimize performance and provide full 10b/s bandwidth per port.
Advanced virtualization features
OneConnect supports advanced virtualization features from leading server vendors that allow multiple NIC PCI functions to be created on each adapter port. Each NIC function is presented to the operating system or hypervisor as a physical port with a separate MAC address and assigned bandwidth. This enables a single adapter port to provide specialized NIC functions for different uses, such as payload traffic, guest migration and console management for virtualized servers.
Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV)
With OneConnect support for SR-IOV, virtual machines can share adapter ports to optimize performance with up to 32 virtual functions per port. VM to VM communication is enabled with a Layer 2 switch that is embedded in the OneConnect adapter. OneConnect adapters are PCI-SIG compliant and will support SR-IOV as available with hypervisors.
OneCommand Manager application
The OneCommand Manager application enables centralized management of Emulex OneConnect UCNAs and HBAs throughout the data center from a centralized management console. The OneCommand Manager application provides a graphical user interface (GUI) and a scriptable command line user interface (CLI), which drive administration efficiency and business agility.
