Intel® 10 Gigabit XF LR Server Adapters

Dual and Single Port 10 GbE Ethernet Server Adapters designed for multi-core

Energy-Efficient, Next-Generation 10 Gigabit Performance 10 Gigabit Ethernet has moved past the early adoption stage and is rapidly becoming a mainstay for backbones within Enterprise and service provider networks. The escalating deployments of servers with multi-core processors and demanding applications such as high performance computing (HPC), database clusters, and video-on-demand are driving the need for 10 Gigabit connections. Based on the Intel® 82598EB 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller, the next-generation Intel® 10 Gigabit XF Server Adapters are designed to meet the throughput and latency requirements of bandwidth-hungry applications, while offering a very low power envelope for energy efficiency. Ideal for slot-constrained environments, the Intel® 10 Gigabit XF Dual Port Server Adapter provides a simplified alternative to multiple 1 Gbps server adapters.

Features and benefits

Intel® 82598EB 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller Industry-leading, energy-efficient design for next-generation 10 Gigabit performance and multi-core processors.
Low-Profile Enables higher bandwidth and throughput from standard and low-profile PCIe* slots and servers.
Load balancing on multiple CPUs Increases performance on multi-processor systems by efficiently balancing network loads across CPU cores when used with Receive-Side Scaling from Microsoft or Scalable I/O on Linux*.
Intel® I/O Acceleration Technology (Intel® I/OAT) Accelerates I/O with higher throughput and lower CPU utilization by offloading processing overhead.
iSCSI remote boot support Provides centralized storage area network (SAN) management at a lower cost than competing iSCSI solutions.
MSI-X support

Minimizes the overhead of interrupts.

Allows load balancing of interrupt handling between different cores/CPUs.
Virtual Machine Device queues (VMDq)

Allows the efficient routing of packets to the correct target machine in a virtualized environment using multiple hardware queues.

Ensures transmit fairness and prevents head-of-line blocking.
Low latency Ability to toggle between the interrupt aggregation and non-aggregation mode based on the type of data being transferred.

Optimized queues: 32 transmit (Tx) and 64 receive

(Rx) per port
Network packet handling without waiting or buffer overflow Efficient packet prioritization.
Compatible with x4, x8, and x16 standard and low-profile PCI Express* slots Allows dual-port operation in almost any PCI Express server slot, except x1 slots, and allows each PCI Express slot port to operate without interfering with the other.
Support for most network operating systems (NOS) Enables widespread deployment.
Remote management support Reduces support costs with remote management based on industry-wide standards.
Multi-mode fiber 62.5/50 um Ensures compatibility with fiber-optic cable lengths up to 300 meters.
RoHS compliant, lead-free technology Compliant with the European Union directive (effective as of July 2006) to reduce the use of hazardous materials.
Intel® PROSet Utility for Windows* Device Manager Provides point-and-click power over individual adapters, advanced adapter features, connection teaming, and virtual local area network (VLAN) configuration.
Intel backing Backed by an Intel® limited lifetime warranty, 90-day money-back guarantee (U.S. and Canada), and worldwide support.
