HPE StoreFabric CN1100R N3U52A 10Gb Ethernet BASE-T Dual Port Converged Network Adapter for ProLiant Generation10 Servers (Brand New with 3 Years Warranty)

The HPE StoreFabric CN1100R N3U52A Converged Network Adapters (CNAs) are dual port adapters that provide Ethernet, iSCSI, and Fibre Channel (FC) connectivity over 10 GbE using both Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and Converged Enhanced Ethernet (CEE) standards. By consolidating Ethernet, iSCSI, and Fibre Channel onto a converged adapter, Hewlett Packard Enterprise CNAs reduce the number of separate adapters and cables required for your datacenter and also reduce operational, power and cooling costs while preserving existing Ethernet and Fibre Channel infrastructure. HPE CNAs have also been thoroughly tested with HPE ProLiant servers and HPE Top of Rack (ToR) switches to ensure an optimal Hewlett Packard Enterprise FCoE solution for your datacenter. This StoreFabric CN1100R Converged Network Adapters comes with 3 Years Warranty.

Features and Benefits

Converged Infrastructure
Combines the functionality of a NIC (Ethernet/iSCSI) and Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter (FC HBA) onto a single converged adapter reducing the number of adapters and cables thus reducing acquisition and operational costs.
Dual port 10 Gb Ethernet Converged Network Adapter.
Active Health System (AHS).

Sends Fibre Channel data packets via Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) using Converged Enhanced Ethernet (CEE) functionality ensuring high standards of data integrity and lossless Ethernet.

Provides HPE ProLiant Connectivity to Storage and Networks
Provides an HPE-branded Converged Network Adapter solution which has undergone extensive Hewlett Packard Enterprise interoperability testing for connecting HPE ProLiant servers into storage and networking environments.
Optimal for connecting into the B-series and C-series FCoE Converged Network Switches.

Flexible Connect
Choose between SFP+ SR (optical) or direct attach copper cable connectivity allowing maximum flexibility in connecting to HPE FCoE Converged Network Switches.
The 10G BASE-T HPE adapter can use existing UTP CAT6A (or better) cable to deliver Gigabit Ethernet over copper, according to the IEEE 802.3an specifications. For new installations, CAT6A shielded cable is recommended.

Available with 10GBASE-T connectivity using RJ45 connectors for CAT6A or CAT7 cables, reduces implementation costs by eliminating need for SFP+ optics.

Jumbo Frames
Support jumbo frames (also known as extended frames), permitting up to a 9K byte (KB) transmission unit (MTU) when running Ethernet I/O traffic. This is over 5X the size of a standard 1500-byte Ethernet frame. With jumbo frames, networks can achieve higher throughput performance and improve CPU utilization. These attributes are particularly useful for database transfer and tape backup operations.

CN1100R Series adapters supports DPDK with benefit for packet processing acceleration and use in NFV deployments.

TCP/IP Stateless Offloading
TCP, IP, UDP checksum offload, Large Send Offload (LSO), TCP Segmentation Offload (TSO). These features optimize host efficiency, leaving the CPU available for other duties.

Tunnel Offload
CN1200E and CN1100R Series CNAs minimize the impact of overlay networking on host performance with tunnel offload support for VXLAN and NVGRE. By offloading packet processing to adapters, customers can use overlay networking to increase VM migration flexibility and network scale with minimal impact to performance. HPE Tunnel Offloading increases I/O throughput, reduces CPU utilization, and lowers power consumption. NVGRE tunnel offload supports Microsoft OS environments and VxLAN supports select VMware and Linux (RHEL and SUSE) environments.

Message Signaled Interrupt (Extended) provides performance benefits for multi-core servers by load balancing interrupts between CPUs/cores.

802.1Q VLANs
IEEE 802.1Q virtual local area network (VLAN) protocol allows each physical port of the HPE 533 FLR-T adapter to be separated into multiple virtual NICs for added network segmentation and enhanced security and performance. VLANs increase security by isolating traffic between users. Limiting the broadcast traffic to within the same VLAN domain also improves performance.

TCP/IP Offload Engine (TOE) shifts the processing of data in the TCP protocol stack from the server CPU to the adapter's processor, freeing server CPU cycles for other operations.

Optimized for Virtualization
I/O Virtualization support for VMware NetQueue and Microsoft VMQ help meet the performance demands of consolidated virtual workloads.
Compliant with Single-Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV), accommodating multiple Virtual Machines (VMs) to share single PCIe resources.

Checksum & Segmentation Offload
Normally the TCP Checksum is computed by the protocol stack. By selecting one of the "Checksum Offload" parameters, the checksum can be computed by the adapter.
Segmentation Offload is technique for increasing outbound throughput of high-bandwidth network connections by reducing CPU overhead. The technique is also called TCP segmentation offload (TSO) when applied to TCP, or generic segmentation offload (GSO).

IPv6 uses 128-bit addressing allowing for more devices and users on the Internet. IPv4 supported 32-bit addressing. The HPE 533FLR-T Adapter by QLogic supports IPv6.

Receive Side Scaling (RSS)
RSS resolves the single-processor bottleneck by allowing the receive side network load from a network adapter to be shared across multiple processors. RSS enables packet receive processing to scale with the number of available processors.

Time synchronization implementations (PTP)
Synchronization of system clocks throughout a network, achieving clock accuracy in the sub microsecond range, making it suitable for measurement and control systems.

Network Adapter Teaming
HPE CNAs support for NIC teaming helps IT administrators increase network fault tolerance and increased network bandwidth. The team of adapters can work together as a single virtual adapter.

Network Partitioning (NPAR)
The CN1100R Series adapters support Network Partitioning (NPAR) for ProLiant rack servers. Allowing administrators to configure a 10 GB port as four separate partitions or physical functions. Each PCI function is associated with a different virtual NIC. To the OS and the network, each physical function appears as a separate NIC port.
