The Solarflare SFN5122F dual-port 10G Ethernet SFP+ enterprise server adapter delivers the industry's best application performance, lowest power consumption, and most scalable virtualization, enabling unmatched performance and scalability for virtualized data centers.

The SFN5122F is designed to address issues facing data center managers today. Equipped to handle the application loads of the latest multi-core processors, it also provides unmatched power efficiency for the consolidation and deployment of high-density servers. The SFN5122F supports data networking with concurrent support of iSCSI and NAS traffic - while remaining true to the need for cost effective, power-efficient and high-performance network IO.

Lowest power
At less than 5 Watts, the SFN5122F consumes less than half the power of the leading competitors' products, and delivers 5-10x the efficiency of 1G Ethernet (Gbps/Watt). This not only makes a power efficient 10G network possible, it can save thousands of dollars of operating costs for a typical data center. The SFN5122F also meets the Energy Star requirement of less than 8 Watt/port power consumption.

Scalable, hardware-assisted virtualization
The SFN5122F is designed to optimize virtualized application performance and maximize the use of network resources. With 10x the number of vNICs and virtual PCIe functions over the competition, it scales as the number of CPU cores and virtual machines increases for better performance and manageability.

Leadership application performance
The SFN5122F delivers the industry's lowest-latency and full 40 Gbps bidirectional line-rate performance. Featuring a rich set of stateless offloads, it provides efficient acceleration of the most demanding network protocol tasks. The SFN5122F features hypervisor bypass and SR-IOV used to accelerate guest applications in leading hypervisors, including VMware, Hyper-V, and XenServer via direct guest access. This relieves network I/O bottlenecks hidden in virtualized environments, allowing IT managers to allocate network resources directly to applications. This enables the best performance and lowest CPU utilization in virtualized servers. The SFN5122F is driver compatible with the SFN5121T product. It also supports Solarflare's OpenOnload application accelerator, a high-performance user-level network stack for Linux. OpenOnload bypasses kernel networking overheads and is binary compatible with standard APIs and applications.


Product Highlights
  • 40 Gbps throughput (2 ports, full-duplex) insures the full 10G bandwidth is available to critical applications
  • Offloads for critical compute-intensive tasks insures minimum burden is placed on the server CPU, freeing up processor cycles for customer applications
  • Supports Solarflare OpenOnload, a unique application acceleration middleware providing direct sockets connection to applications, enabling the industry's lowest latency and
