  • Mfr Part Number: LPE16002B-M6
  • Features:
    • PCIe 3.0 bus increases interconnect performance bandwidth by 2x compared to PCIe 2.0; the new encoding scheme reduces overhead by 20% resulting in more efficient data transfers and power efficiency
    • vScale performance and scalability-multi-core ASIC engine with eight cores supports 255 virtual functions (VFs), 1024 Message Signaled Interrupts eXtended (MSI-X) and 8192 logins/open exchanges for maximum virtual machine (VM) densityup to 4x more than other adapters
    • 2x management functionality, and takes half the time to manage with OneCommand Manager
    • GreenState power efficiency - reduces data center power consumption and associated OPEX by delivering
    • up to 4x better IOPS performance/watt
    • BlockGuard data integrity offload - high performance T10 PI end-to-end data integrity protects against silent data corruption
    • vEngine CPU offload - lowers CPU burden on host server, enabling support for more VMs
    • Rock-solid reliability and thermal characteristics
    • essential for mission-critical, cloud and virtualized applications
    • Support for MSI-X, improves host utilization and enhances application performance
    • Support for Gen 5 (16GFC) devices
    • Comprehensive virtualization capabilities with support for N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) and Windows virtual HBAs
    • Secure management with role-based administration integrated with Light Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and Active Directory (AD) services
    • Common driver model, allows a single driver to support all Emulex HBAs on a given OS
