Optimized Network and Storage Connectivity
The Emulex OCm10102-F-M is a high-performance 10Gbps Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) adapter ideal for the Dell PowerEdge M1000e blade server platform. This adapter consolidates traffic for networking, Fibre Channel and FCoE storage within the Dell PowerEdge M1000e blade server platform. A member of the Emulex OneConnect™ Universal Converged Network Adapter (UCNA) family, the OCm10102-F-M FCoE adapter supports a common 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) infrastructure for networking and storage, reducing capital expense (CapEx) for adapters, switches and cables, and operational expense (OpEx) for power, cooling and IT administration.
The OCm10102-F-M FCoE adapter supports FCoE offload using the same field-proven Emulex drivers that work with Emulex LightPulse® Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) and CNAs.
10 Gigabit Ethernet offload
New multi-core server platforms, server virtualization and high-demand applications are driving the need for low-latency, high-bandwidth networks. The OCm10102-F-M adapter meets these requirements with full 10GbE network performance using an 8-lane PCI Express Gen 2 architecture and support for stateless TCP/IP and TCP Chimney offloads.
Boot from LAN/SAN
Fibre Channel SAN and Preboot eXecutive Environment (PXE) boot support make the OCm10102-F-M an ideal solution for blade servers and other diskless deployments.
