Optimized Network Connectivity
The HP NC550SFP Dual Port 10Gb Ethernet (10GbE) Server Adapter is a high-performance low profile PCIe adapter for HP ProLiant rack mount servers.
Emulex OneConnect Universal CNA platform
HP NC550SFP Adapter is based on the Emulex OneConnect Universal Converged Network Adapter (UCNA) architecture and delivers industry-leading performance with enhanced functionality, including:
- Industry-leading throughput as measured with Ixia IxChariot performance tests. Near 10Gb/s Ethernet line rates with more message sizes than the competition.
- Optimization for virtualized servers. HP NC550SFP Adapters are complimentary to HP’s FlexFabric strategy. HP FlexFabric is a next-generation, highly scalable data center fabric architecture and a technology layer in the HP Converged Infrastructure architecture.
- Full support for TCP hardware offloads, including TCP Offload Engine (TOE).
- The same 10GbE infrastructure as other HP Converged Network Adapters (CNAs) that are based on OneConnect. A unified 10GbE platform enables simplified version management and testing based on common NIC drivers, common firmware and boot code, consistent NIC teaming and consistent TCP offload support.
