The QLogic Dual Port 10GbE SFP+ Embedded Virtual Fabric Adapter (VFA) is a 10 Gigabit Ethernet adapter designed to fit in to a dedicated slot in servers. This card design allows you to use the server's standard PCIe slots for other technologies. The adapter connects to SFP+ Multimode Fiber SR optical modules and DAC cables. With the addition of a license upgrade, this adapter also supports full hardware offload for the Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) protocol or iSCSI processing. The QLogic Dual Port 10GbE SFP+ Embedded VFA enables you to divide up each 10 Gb port on the adapter in to as many as four virtual NICs (vNICs) for a total of eight vNICs per adapter. This switch-independent feature uses IEEE 802.1Q VLAN tagging to ensure isolated data traffic and is ideal for virtualized workloads where many NICs are required for performance and scalability.
