Virtualization, cloud computing, high performance computing (HPC), and clustering initiatives are increasing workload demands. The Broadcom network adapter family is the solution of choice for workload-intensive computing environments, providing a reliable, high-performance 10 GbE connectivity solution.
These adapters support PCI-SIG single root input/output virtualization (SR-IOV) and NIC partitioning (NPAR). SR-IOV delivers higher performance and lower CPU utilization with increased virtual machine (VM) scalability.
QLogic NPAR enables up to four physical, switch-agnostic, switch-independent NIC partitions per adapter port. Dynamic and fine-grained bandwidth provisioning enables control of network traffic from VMs and hypervisor services.
