Dual Ports for Enhanced Connectivity
Equipped with two ports, the adapter facilitates simultaneous connections to two networks or devices. This dual-port configuration enhances network redundancy, load balancing, and overall connectivity options.
The 622FLR-SFP28 model is tailored to work with SFP28 transceivers. Small Form-Factor Pluggable 28 is a compact, high-speed optical transceiver module commonly used in data center environments.
With the capacity to handle 10/25 Gbps speeds, the HPE 867334-B21 ensures high bandwidth, making it suitable for demanding applications such as high-performance computing, virtualization, and data-intensive tasks.
RDMA (Remote Direct Memory Access) Support
RDMA support enhances data transfer efficiency by allowing data to be transferred directly between the memory of two connected systems without involving the operating system. This feature is particularly beneficial for reducing latency in data-intensive applications.
Applications Data Centers
The HPE 867334-B21 finds a natural home in data center environments where high-speed, reliable networking is paramount. Its dual-speed capability and dual-port configuration make it well-suited for handling the diverse traffic requirements within a data center.
In virtualized environments where multiple virtual machines coexist on a single physical server, the converged nature of this network adapter becomes invaluable. It efficiently handles both Ethernet and storage traffic, optimizing the performance of virtualized workloads.
High-Performance Computing (HPC)
For high-performance computing clusters tackling complex simulations and computations, the HPE 867334-B21's high bandwidth and RDMA support contribute to the seamless flow of data, enhancing the overall performance of HPC systems.
Given its Converged Network Adapter design, this HPE model is well-suited for converged storage networks, where the consolidation of storage and networking traffic simplifies infrastructure and reduces costs.
In cloud computing environments, where agility and scalability are paramount, the dual-speed capability and dual-port configuration of this adapter offer the flexibility needed to adapt to varying workloads and network demands.
Converged Network Adapter Architecture
The architecture of a Converged Network Adapter is designed to support multiple traffic types over a single network connection. This includes Ethernet traffic for traditional networking and storage traffic for connecting to storage devices.
The compatibility with SFP28 transceivers is a key technological feature. These transceivers, being small and pluggable, enable the easy and quick connection of the network adapter to optical fiber or copper cables.
RDMA technology enhances data transfer efficiency by enabling direct memory access between connected systems. This offloads data transfer tasks from the CPU, reducing latency and improving overall system performance.
The ability to support both 10 Gbps and 25 Gbps speeds is made possible through advanced signaling and data processing technologies. This dual-speed capability ensures compatibility with a wide range of network configurations.
