          Optimized Network Connectivity

            The Emulex Virtual Fabric Adapter (VFA) for IBM System x is a high-performance, dual-port network adapter for 10Gb Ethernet (10GbE) networks. It offers the benefits and flexibility of I/O convergence with a single end-to-end solution. Stateless TCP/IP offloads and TCP Chimney Offload provide maximum bandwidth with minimum use of CPU resources.

            Emulex 10GbE VFA for IBM System x achieves line rate 10Gb/s performance with support for TCP/IP stateless offloads and TCP Chimney Offload. TCP Chimney Offload reduces system processor utilization, provides increased system performance and reduces overall system power requirements.

            Emulex 10GbE VFA for IBM System x is based on the Emulex OneConnect Universal Converged Network Adapter (UCNA) platform that also includes support for Fibre 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.

            The Emulex 10GbE integrated VFA and VFA for IBM System x offer the benefits and flexibility of an exclusive enhanced virtual NIC (vNIC) function, which enables bidirectional bandwidth management, dynamic bandwidth allocation and I/O convergence in a single end-to-end solution in partnership with IBM’s networking division. Each port on the 10GbE VFA card can support up to four vNICs per physical port. In addition, the 10GbE VFA card supports Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) which allows PCIe devices to appear as multiple virtual devices that can optimize I/O performance by providing direct I/O for virtual machines (VMs).
