Product Description

Intel Ethernet Server Adapter X520-DA2 - Network Adapter - Plug-in Card

The best-selling Intel Ethernet Server Adapter X520-DA1 and X520-DA2 are known for their high performance,low latency,reliability,and flexibility. The addition of the Open Compute Project (OCP) server adapter to the family delivers the Intel Ethernet Server Adapter X520-DA1/X520-DA2 capabilities in an OCP form factor.

The Intel Ethernet Server Adapter X520-DA1/X520-DA2 for OCP delivers a proven,reliable solution for deployments of Ethernet for high-bandwidth,low-cost,10-GbE network connections. Increased I/O performance with Intel Data Direct I/O Technology and support for intelligent offloads make this adapter a perfect match for scaling performance on Intel Xeon processor E5/E7-based servers.

Powered by the Intel 82599 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller,the Intel Ethernet Server Adapter X520-DA1/X520-DA2 for OCP addresses the demanding needs of the next-generation data center by providing unmatched features for virtualization and proven,reliable performance. The Intel 82599 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller is the industry standard for 10 GbE,making it the most popular 10 GbE controller on the market today.
  • Best choice for virtualization
  • The explosive growth in virtualization is leading to an increasing demand for network performance. With more Virtual Machines (VMs) running on each multi-core server,networking traffic is dramatically increased with each VM competing for available I/O bandwidth. Intel's family of Intel Ethernet X520 Server Adapters addresses networking bottlenecks in virtualized environments. These adapters enable network-intensive applications to achieve the performance expected in a virtualized environment.
  • Support for Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)
  • FCoE encapsulates Fiber Channel frames over standard Ethernet networks,enabling Fiber Channel to take advantage of 10GbE networks while preserving its native protocol. The X520 server adapters offer FCoE hardware acceleration to provide performance comparable to FC HBAs. The server adapters support Data Center Bridging,also known as Converged Enhanced Ethernet (CEE),which allows customers to configure traffic classes and priorities to deliver a lossless Ethernet fabric. An Intel Ethernet X520 server adapter reduces TCO by eliminating redundant fabrics and saves the cost of expensive FC HBAs and FC switch ports.
  • Support for iSCSI
  • The server adapters provide complete support for proven native OS and VMM iSCSI initiators as well as iSCSI boot. Historically,CRC32C computation has degraded system performance,but now with the CRC instruction set included in the Intel Xeon processors,CRC validation is possible with minimal impact to network throughput while delivering superior data integrity. The Intel Ethernet family of X520 server adapters does it all:10 Gigabit LAN,FCoE,and iSCSI;truly delivering on the promise of unified networking.
  • Designed for multi-core processors
  • Support for technologies such as Intel QuickData,multiple MSI-X vectors,and Low Latency Interrupts allow the X520 server adapters to provide high-performance,10 Gigabit connectivity in multi-core server blades. These technologies distribute network processing across multiple CPU cores,improving overall performance. For today's demanding virtualized data center environments,the family of X520 server adapters delivers ultimate flexibility and scalability.
