Product Overview

The EXL710QDA2G1P5 is a network adapter from Intel that uses PCI-Express 3.0 X8 technology to provide fast and reliable connectivity. This network adapter is specifically designed for use in data centers and high-performance computing environments where there is a need for high-speed data transfer and low-latency communication.

PCI-Express 3.0 X8 Technology

PCI-Express 3.0 is the third generation of Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) technology. PCIe is a high-speed serial computer expansion bus standard that enables the connection of peripheral devices to a motherboard. PCIe 3.0 is the most recent version of this standard, and it offers significant improvements over the previous version, PCIe 2.0.

PCI-Express 3.0 X8 technology refers to the number of lanes that the network adapter uses to transfer data. The EXL710QDA2G1P5 uses eight lanes, which enables it to transfer data at a rate of 8 gigabits per second per lane. This means that the network adapter can transfer data at a total rate of up to 64 gigabits per second.

Ethernet Converged Network Adapter

The EXL710QDA2G1P5 is an Ethernet converged network adapter (CNA). A CNA is a type of network adapter that combines the functionality of both Ethernet and Fibre Channel adapters into a single device. This enables the network adapter to support both traditional Ethernet traffic and storage area network (SAN) traffic, which is typically carried over Fibre Channel.

By combining the functionality of Ethernet and Fibre Channel adapters, CNAs reduce the number of adapters that are required in a data center. This simplifies the cabling infrastructure and reduces the overall cost of the network.

40Gbps Data Transfer Rate

The EXL710QDA2G1P5 supports a data transfer rate of up to 40 gigabits per second. This high data transfer rate is achieved through the use of multiple lanes of PCI-Express 3.0 technology and advanced networking features such as hardware-based virtualization, quality of service (QoS), and congestion control.

Hardware-Based Virtualization

Hardware-based virtualization is a feature that enables multiple virtual machines (VMs) to share a single physical network adapter. This is achieved through the use of virtual functions (VFs), which are lightweight instances of the network adapter that can be assigned to individual VMs.

By using hardware-based virtualization, the EXL710QDA2G1P5 can provide high levels of network performance to multiple VMs simultaneously. This is particularly useful in data center environments where there are many VMs running on a single physical server.

Quality of Service (QoS)

Quality of service (QoS) is a feature that enables the network adapter to prioritize certain types of traffic over others. This is achieved through the use of traffic classes, which are defined by the network administrator.

By prioritizing certain types of traffic, such as real-time audio and video streams, QoS ensures that these critical applications receive the necessary network resources to function properly. This can help to improve the overall user experience and reduce network congestion.

Congestion Control

Congestion control is a feature that enables the network adapter to detect and mitigate network congestion. This is achieved through the use of advanced algorithms that monitor network traffic and adjust the data transfer rate accordingly.

By detecting and mitigating network congestion, congestion control helps to ensure that the network adapter can maintain high levels of performance even in high-traffic environments.
