The 8300 Series adapters are QLogic’s fourth generation of Converged Network Adapters, supporting simultaneous LAN (TCP/IP) and SAN (Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and iSCSI) traffic at line rate, 10Gbps Ethernet (GbE) speeds—at extremely low CPU utilization with full hardware offloads. This extreme performance eliminates potential I/O bottlenecks in today’s powerful multiprocessor, multicore servers.
In addition, support for powerful virtualization features make this adapter ideal for virtualized environments that need excellent I/O performance to service growing numbers of virtual machines (VMs). The ability to support multiple protocols simultaneously on the same hardware offers multi-tenancy flexibility, which is ideal for private and public cloud environments.
