Low Cost, High Performance, Dual Port 10GbE Unified
Wire Adapter, Enables connectivity over Single Unified Wire with
SR-IOV, EVB/VNTag, DCB
Chelsio s T520-SO-CR is a memory free dual-port 10 Gigabit
Ethernet Unified Wire adapter with a PCI Express 3.0 host bus
interface, optimized for cloud computing, virtualization, storage, and
other data center applications.
The fifth generation (T5) technology from Chelsio provides the
highest 10GbE performance available and lowers host-system CPU
communications overhead with on-board hardware that does stateless
off-loads for TCP/IP and UDP.
The Unified Wire Solution
With the T520-SO-CR, Chelsio is enabling a unified wire for
LAN, SAN, and cluster traffic. This unified wire was made possible by
the high bandwidth and low latency of 10GbE combined with storage and
cluster protocols operating over TCP/IP (iSCSI and FCoE). In parallel,
operating systems and hypervisors have incorporated native support for
iSCSI and database applications are now supporting file-based storage
protocols such as NFS as an alternative to SANs.
T520-SO-CR includes a full-fledged integrated Traffic Manager
for robust flow control, traffic management, and QoS.
The adapter s two ports and IEEE 802.3ad link
aggregation/failover features are ideal for critical network
applications that require redundancy and high-availability capabilities.
T520-SO-CR Ethernet-only networking reduces the data center s
cost in network adapters, cables, switches, rack space, power,
equipment spares, management tools, planning, networking skills and
