Intel® 82599 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller: Product Brief
Transforming the Data Center Through a Reliable and Unified 10GbE Network
An Intelligent Solution
A number of trends are driving change in the data center. Information growth continues unabated, server virtualization requires multi-core servers with higher bandwidth and networked storage, and power and cooling remains ...a significant challenge. These trends are driving IT managers to look for new, optimized solutions that support the dynamic data center. From a network perspective, IT managers recognize how the trend towards 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) will benefit them; they want to consolidate multiple GbE links into a single 10GbE network to lower cost and complexity.
Intel’s third-generation 10GbE controller, the Intel® 82599 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller continues to build on the innovative trends set by its predecessor and pushes the envelope even further.
• Advanced features such as Receive Side Coalescing, Intel® Ethernet Flow Director, and support for PCI Express* 2.0 help deliver new levels of 10GbE performance
• Intel® Virtualization Technology for Connectivity (Intel® VT-c) delivers industry-leading I/O virtualization capabilities that provide flexibility, scalability and mobility
• Advanced unified networking capabilities, including support for lossless Ethernet, iSCSI acceleration, NAS, and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) offloads help consolidate data center networks onto a single Ethernet fabric.
The Intel 82599 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller along with Intel® Xeon® processor 5500 series-based servers deliver unmatched performance scalability that signals a new paradigm in the data center—a paradigm of intelligent solutions that help manage growth while controlling costs; a paradigm of advanced virtualization features; and a paradigm of a simple, cost-effective, unified network.
