Overview of the HPE Dual-Ports Network Adapter

The HPE Ethernet PCI Express 10GB Dual-Ports Network Adapter (665246-B21) is a high-performance networking solution designed for use with HPE ProLiant servers and storage systems. It is based on the PCIe 3.0 interface and supports 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) connectivity, providing fast and reliable data transfer speeds for demanding workloads and applications.

The adapter features dual-port functionality, allowing it to connect to multiple network devices or segments, providing increased redundancy and availability. It also supports advanced features such as jumbo frames, VLAN tagging, and TCP/IP offload engine (TOE) to enhance performance and reduce CPU utilization.

This adapter is designed to be easy to install and use, and is compatible with a wide range of operating systems and virtualization platforms, including Windows, Linux, and VMware. It also includes support for management and monitoring tools such as HPE OneView, making it easy to monitor and manage the adapter from a centralized location.

Features and benefits of 10GB Ethernet connectivity

10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) is a high-speed networking technology that provides faster data transfer speeds and improved performance compared to traditional 1 Gigabit Ethernet (1GbE) connections. Some of the key features and benefits of 10GbE connectivity include:

High-speed data transfer: 10GbE provides a data transfer rate of 10 Gbps, which is 10 times faster than 1GbE. This allows for faster data transfer between servers and storage systems, as well as improved application performance.
Scalability: 10GbE allows for the addition of more bandwidth as needed, making it a suitable option for organizations that are expecting to grow or have high-bandwidth requirements.
Reduced latency: 10GbE reduces the amount of time it takes for data to travel across a network, resulting in faster response times and improved application performance.
Increased availability: 10GbE provides increased network redundancy and availability by allowing for multiple connections to the network, ensuring that in case one connection fails, the other connection can take over.
Virtualization support: 10GbE allows multiple virtual machines to share a single physical NIC, which can improve network performance and reduce costs by reducing the number of NICs required.
Network consolidation: 10GbE allows multiple network protocols and types to be consolidated onto a single network, resulting in cost savings and simplifying network management.
Enhanced security: 10GbE supports advanced security features such as encryption and authentication, to provide better protection for sensitive data and applications.

Performance and scalability of the adapter

The HPE Ethernet PCI Express 10GB Dual-Ports Network Adapter (665246-B21) is designed to deliver high performance and scalability for demanding workloads and applications. Some of the key performance and scalability features of this adapter include:

High-speed data transfer: The adapter supports 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) connectivity, providing a data transfer rate of 10 Gbps, which is 10 times faster than 1 Gigabit Ethernet (1GbE) connections.
Dual-port functionality: The adapter features dual-port functionality, allowing it to connect to multiple network devices or segments, providing increased redundancy and availability.
Jumbo frames: The adapter supports jumbo frames, which are larger than standard Ethernet frames, allowing for more efficient data transfer and reduced CPU utilization.
TCP/IP offload engine (TOE): The adapter features a TCP/IP offload engine (TOE), which offloads network processing tasks from the CPU to the adapter, reducing CPU utilization and improving performance.
VLAN tagging: The adapter supports VLAN tagging, which allows for the creation of multiple virtual LANs on a single physical LAN, improving network segmentation and security.
Compatibility with HPE servers and storage systems: The adapter is designed to be compatible with a wide range of HPE ProLiant servers and storage systems, providing a seamless and reliable integration.
Management and monitoring tools: The adapter is compatible with HPE OneView and other network management systems, providing centralized management and monitoring of the adapter.
