Streamlining Network Operations
The Intel X710-DA2BLK is a dual-port PCI-E converged adapter that is designed to streamline network operations. A converged adapter is an adapter that can handle multiple types of network traffic, such as storage, data, and management traffic, over a single network connection.
One of the key benefits of using converged adapters like the X710-DA2BLK in a network infrastructure is the ability to streamline network operations. By handling multiple types of network traffic over a single connection, converged adapters can help to reduce the number of network connections required, which can simplify the management of the network. Additionally, the X710-DA2BLK also supports advanced features such as Virtual Machine Device Queues (VMDq) and Single-Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) which helps to improve the performance, security and isolation of virtualized environments. These features can help to offload some of the processing from the CPU to the adapter, which can free up CPU resources for other tasks. This can help to reduce the amount of management required for the network and reduce the overall workload of network administrators.
High-Performance of Converged Adapter
The Intel X710-DA2BLK is a dual-port PCI-E converged adapter that is designed to provide high-performance in network infrastructure. A converged adapter is an adapter that can handle multiple types of network traffic, such as storage, data, and management traffic, over a single network connection.
The X710-DA2BLK is designed to provide high-performance by supporting 10Gbps data transfer, which allows for fast and efficient data transfer. It also supports advanced features such as Virtual Machine Device Queues (VMDq) and Single-Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) which can help to improve the performance, security, and isolation of virtualized environments. These features can offload some of the processing from the CPU to the adapter, freeing up CPU resources for other tasks, which can help to increase the overall performance of the network.
Additionally, the X710-DA2BLK also supports advanced features such as Quality of Service (QoS), which allows for prioritization of network traffic, and traffic shaping, that can help to ensure that the network is able to handle the specific needs of different applications and services. This can help to ensure that the network is able to deliver the necessary performance for different types of applications and services.
Improved Network Reliability
The Intel X710-DA2BLK is a dual-port PCI-E converged adapter that is designed to improve network reliability. A converged adapter is an adapter that can handle multiple types of network traffic, such as storage, data, and management traffic, over a single network connection.
One of the key benefits of using converged adapters like the X710-DA2BLK in a network infrastructure is the ability to improve network reliability. The X710-DA2BLK supports advanced features such as Virtual Machine Device Queues (VMDq) and Single-Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) which helps to improve the performance, security and isolation of virtualized environments. These features can help to offload some of the processing from the CPU to the adapter, which can free up CPU resources for other tasks. This can help to improve the overall reliability of the network by reducing the chances of CPU overloading and network downtime.
Additionally, the X710-DA2BLK can also support link redundancy and failover mechanisms, which helps to ensure that in case of a link failure, the network remains operational and data traffic is automatically routed through an alternative path. This can help to improve the overall reliability of the network by ensuring that there is no single point of failure.

A converged adapter is also referred to as a converged network adapter (CNA) or a single network interface card (NIC). Within a network, the CNA serves the combined roles of a fiber channel host bus adapter and TCP/IP Ethernet network interface card.
The role of a converged adapter is to connect servers to FC-based SANs and Ethernet-based LANs, including workstations and other hardware units. The adapter connects to the server through the PCI-e interface. Therefore, the server will send fiber channel SAN and Ethernet-based LAN to the Ethernet port on the converged adapter through the Fiber Channel over Ethernet protocol for FC-based SAN data and Ethernet protocol for traffic and data on LAN.
At the CNA level, FCoE traffic is first converted into FC and then sent to the FC-based SAN. There's no conversion for Ethernet traffic, which is directly sent to a LAN. Where a CNA is absent, servers must have at the very least two adapters. The first is an FC HBA adapter that aids in connecting the server to SAN, while the second will have a TCP/IP Ethernet NIC that facilitates the connection to the LAN.
We have a wide range of converged network adapters that will come in handy in meeting the requirements of your computer network. The use of a CNA to make the connection between servers to both SAN and LAN helps to reduce costs since it will cut back on the number of adapter cards, PCI-e slots, cables, and switch ports used within the network. As a result, a converged adapter will greatly minimize the challenge of network maintenance and administration, since there will be only a single connection and a single cable to look after.
Other benefits of converged adapters and converged networks are:
- Simplification of the typical storage and network topology
- Access to basic network interface card features and performance virtualization over NIC.
- All-in-one provision of Ethernet, iSCSI, and Fiber Channel (FC) connectivity by offloading FCoE and iSCSI hardware.
- Guaranteed data integrity
- Power saving because of fewer adapters and cables.
- Minimal impact of the overlay network
- Fewer switch ports - 1 Port, 2 Port, 4 Port
- Lower cabling requirements
- Centralized network management
- Improved quality of service
- Remote direct memory access to facilitate data acceleration
- Support for software-defined networking (SDN) programming
Converged network adapter plays a strategic role within networks and many IT setups in that they help business owners and network admins consolidate their systems, harness new and emerging technologies, and ensure efficient IT operations. CNAs will also serve as a foundation for all-inclusive progress to more powerful and sophisticated computing networks and systems. With the increased sophistication in storage, handling, and evaluation of data, CNAs as well as other network admin tools are changing the network landscape and creating intelligent and capable networks.
Besides, the converged adapters can be used with specific hardware pieces that can be used to satisfy performance standards. A CNA can be used alongside 10 Gigabit and 40 Gigabit to support greater performance network transmission.
