Optimized Network Connectivity
The HP CN1000E Converged Network Adapter (CNA) is a single-chip, low profile 10Gb Ethernet (10GbE) adapter for HP ProLiant rack servers. The HP CN1000E industry-leading performance with storage protocol offload for iSCSI or Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE). The HP CN1000E fully supports network convergence and Data Center Bridging (DCB) standards for lossless Ethernet with FCoE.
The HP CN1000E complements HP’s Converged Infrastructure architecture. This open architecture uses industry standards to converge storage, server, and network resources and provide seamless interoperability with existing data center core networks.
The HP CN1000E can save up to 30% on captial expenses (CapEx) by reducing the number of adapter cards, switch ports and cables needed to support network and storage traffic.
Lower power and cooling
The HP CN1000E can reduce the number of adapter cards and switches resulting in significant savings for power and cooling.
Consolidation with the latest Intel Xeon CPUs
The CN1000E was designed to leverage the new features of Xeon processors beginning with the 5500 series, including MSI-X, QPI, PCI-Express 2.0, HTT and VT-d which all enable more I/O per CPU with protocol hardware offload technology.
